Spend Australia Day exploring some of the country’s most stunning natural scenery – right here in the Scenic Rim.

Our six National Parks and three lakes offer visitors a smorgasbord of nature adventures.

Take a slow, easy walk to a scenic lookout; cool down in a local swimming hole; test yourself on a challenging bush track; take your mountain bike on a trail around the Wyaralong Dam.

If you’d rather eat and drink your way around the region, we can help with that too.

Paddocks around the region are bursting with fresh produce and you’ll find local ingredients on the menus of many Scenic Rim cafes and restaurants.

Drop into a Scenic Rim brewery or winery for a refreshing local brew.

For a relaxed country meal you can’t go wrong with one of the Scenic Rim’s historic pubs. Casual dining, cool drinks and a laid-back atmosphere. For a real Australia Day celebration you can’t go past the Bearded Dragon Hotel at Tamborine. They’re offering guests Aussie rock music, thong throwing competitions and the Great Aussie BITE breakfast. #straya

Or frock up and visit the Beaudesert Race Track for the Australia Day meet, where they’ll be streaming the Triple J Hottest 100.
