Locations & Experiences Regions in Scenic Rim

Indulgent Getaway

Indulgence in the Scenic Rim

High end indulgence in the Scenic Rim is a unique combination of spectacular countryside, raw wilderness,  stylish luxury accommodation, pampering,  gourmet sensory delights and impeccable service —  all within 90 minutes of Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Choose from a number of Gold Coast Hinterland day spa locations at O'Reilly's, beside Lamington National Park,  the popular artistic Mt Tamborine precinct or westwards high on the Dividing Range.

You'll also find smaller, more intimate and secluded exclusive Scenic Rim pampering experiences, including luxurious private suites with in-house massages and other beauty services. If you're craving an opportunity to immerse in nature, look out for unique treatments in outdoor rainforest clearings and on the secluded banks of babbling crystal-clear creeks. As you feel all tension and tightness leave your body, you'll relish the gentle breeze and the sounds of our incredible Scenic Rim birds.

With pampering comes artistic cuisine, complimented by carefully chosen wines and maybe a spot of shopping or gentle exercise. Our world-heritage listed national parks are perfect for short walks in rainforest to waterfalls and lookouts. You might also enjoy the luxury of a gastronomic food and wine tour, sampling award winning red and white wines and gourmet meals prepared by some of the best south-east Queensland chefs.
