Arts Trails

The Scenic Rim is home to a flourishing arts and cultural movement. You'll find head-turning art-works in local galleries and art cafes and the 'Studio's of the Scenic Rim' trail, from May 4 to June 3, 2012, is an opportunity to see our passionate and talented artists at work. Follow our Arts trail>>

Wine Trails

Savour sophisticated whites and full-bodied reds as you reflect on the scenic beauty which is the backdrop to your Scenic Rim wine experience. Following our wine trail is a personal journey, discovering large and small vineyards, cellar door sales and sumptuous fresh food dining experiences. Follow the wine trail>>

Our towns and villages

Lovingly restored majestic old buildings, traditional draperies and butchers, as well as the modern comforts we're all used to. It's the little bit of remaining unpretentious period charm which makes the Scenic Rim special.  Learn more >>
