Eco cabins coming to Scenic Rim Trail by Spicers

The Spicers Scenic Rim Trail is set to become Queensland’s longest ecotourism trail.

The Queensland Government has given the green light for a series of eco cabins to be installed along the 55km walking trail which traverses national park, tropical rainforest, ancient Eucalypt forests and pristine heathland.

Come late 2019 the Spicers Group will offer a five-day package, overnighting in new state-of-the-art eco cabins.

Scenic Rim Trail walkers will be able to stay in the new eco cabins during the five-day walk.

The proposal gives visitors a unique opportunity to overnight in comfort in pristine National Parks.

The five day trail will cover a 55km walking track, across two separate properties in the Scenic Rim, connecting existing walking tracks in the National Parks to create one of the largest walking trails in the country.

Extending from Mt Mistake to Spicers Peak Nature Reserve, through parts of Main Range National Park, the Spicers Scenic Rim Trail encompasses sub-tropical rainforest, ancient Eucalypt forests and heathland.

Owned and developed by the Turner family, the $10 million Spicers Scenic Rim Trail will include two sustainable eco-camps and improve public camping and hiking facilities.

Tourism Minister Kate Jones announced the project had received full approval in March 2019, saying ecotourism “made sense” for Queensland.
