Things to do in the Scenic Rim

Within an hour's drive of Brisbane and the Gold Coast you'll encounter the first of many Scenic Rim attractions and things to do.

Relax and recharge through indulgence –  consider a hearty breakfast in a quaint country cafe,  a little sight-seeing, lunch and wine-tasting in one of our premium south-east Queensland wineries, before a gentle stroll through one of  our world-heritage national parks.  You can also explore galleries at Mt Tamborine and Boonah, soak up the atmosphere of a country pub or sit quietly in a Lamington NP rainforest stream, before returning to your cottage getaway or other welcoming Scenic Rim accommodation.

If it's adventure and action you're after, there's also plenty of choice, including opportunities to climb our peaks, abseil down our cliffs, sail our waters or fly high in our skies. You'll find activities suitable for families, the fit and active and those who'd just like a gentle challenge.
