Planning a Scenic Rim family getaway

Family Friendly Accommodation

At the end of the day, settle into a modern hotel, rambling old farmhouse, well-equipped cottage or even a farm-stay, where both children and adults can help collect the eggs, feed the animals and maybe even milk a cow. Otherwise try camping Scenic Rim -style – or glamping where it's all set up for you – and spend evenings by an open fire, roasting marshmallows under the stars. More  >>

Things to do for families

Day trippers love uncovering the treasures of Tamborine Mountain's  'Gallery Walk', tramping the rainforest paths and the thrill of our other Scenic Rim attractions. Our sightseeing, art and wine trails are also popular because you can take them at your own pace, stop for lunch in one of our quaint country towns or picnic at a local lookouts or swimming holes  More >>

National Parks for families

Children delight in nature and you don't have to walk far to immerse in our incredible Scenic Rim rainforests, our bubbling creeks and natural swimming holes. Check out our national parks for long and short bush-walks for beginners and more experienced visitors. Look out too for popular picnic and bbq spots.  More>>
