About Scenic Rim Food and wine experiences

The face of Queensland's country towns is evolving and the Scenic Rim food and wine scene is at its forefront. You'll still find the traditional cafe-fare and counter-meals, but now there's more: a new breed of mouth-watering meal and boutique Scenic Rim winery experiences – great opportunities to indulge in great food and wine near Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Choose long breakfasts in quintessentially modern country cafes; lingering lunches, soaking up the atmosphere of a beautifully restored historic Queensland country pub with your lover, family or friends; or choose carefully-crafted meals in our growing number of gourmet restaurants.

Holidays and weekends away are an excuse to indulge. The hardest part is figuring out which Scenic Rim dining experience suits your mood and budget – or perhaps you’d like to keep it simple, with a picnic at one of our great lookouts or dinner under the stars at some of our great places to stay.
