Around the Scenic Rim
Distance: 70km

Here’s an adventure that will take you from one end of the Lamington Plateau to the other.

You’ll experience award-winning accommodation at Beechmont, get to know one of the Scenic Rim’s most historic and popular eco-tourism lodges and see some gorgeous wineries and scenery along the way.

Start at Clouds on Beechmont  near Lamington National Park. Book ahead and stay overnight so you can take full advantage of all the things to do in and around Beechmont.

Drive down the mountain towards Canungra along the scenic Beechmont Rd. It’s a 36km drive which should take you about 40 minutes. See the Canungra itinerary for ideas.

Before you head up the mountain to the Green Mountains section of the Lamington National Park, taste the wines at O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyard, or Sarabah Estate (ring ahead to confirm opening hours).

Make your final ascent to O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat. Book ahead for accommodation and give yourself plenty of time to explore walking trails.

Top Tip: Take your time – both Beechmont and O’Reillys offer a great mix of accommodation and activities.
