The Overflow Estate 1895 , a new boutique cellar door and vineyard, is one of the inaugural Scenic Rim Locavores.

This historic grazing property is located between Boonah and Beaudesert and fronts Lake Wyaralong. The Overflow boasts 12km of waterfront land and covers 4000 acres supporting 500 head of cattle and the vineyard. The magnificent original homestead was built by hand in 1899 and 1900.

The owners have crafted a stylish, relaxed destination to enjoy beautiful wines, local produce and stunning scenery.

Manager Emily Lochran explains their vision in the video below.

The Overflow Estate 1895 is open Thursday to Sunday, and at other times by appointment. Check the Facebook page for details on how to be part of the grape harvest.
