Country markets and festivals

Vibrant festivals are a regular part of our Scenic Rim. Look out too for our Country Markets, where you’ll relish the thrill of discovering new-found personal treasures at  bric-a-brac stalls, buying hand crafted masterpieces from passionate artists and choosing fresh local produce to take home.

Regular festivals include Tamborine Mountain’s renowned ‘Scare-crow’ Festival, Rathdowney’s ‘Heritage Festival’, Mt Barney’s ‘World Apart’ culinary adventure, Boonah’s Arts Festival and the Lost World’s ‘Arts in the Olives’ Festival.

The Scenic Rim is also home to a range of  regular markets.
