Adventure & Excitement

Adventure – Scenic Rim style

If you enjoy the challenge of hanging from a rock face, conquering a steep mountain peak, paddling on open water or flying through the air, an adventurous Scenic Rim getaway will not leave you disappointed.

For those who're energetic but not quite so daring, try bush walking in our national parks, horse-back trail rides, golf or fishing on our picturesque dams.
