Top things to do in the Scenic Rim
Follow the changing landscape south and you’ll find yourself in the Scenic Rim, Brisbane’s World Heritage-listed backyard, home to lush rainforests, spectacular mountain ranges and ancient landforms. Food and wine, romantic escapes, camping, bushwalking, country pubs, art, history and adventures are all here, tied together by the landscape and the beautiful towns and villages. This natural wonderland can be experienced from the air, on the water or across the land with hot air ballooning, fishing, waterskiing and wine tasting waiting for you.
The Scenic Rim is a fruitful area filled with lakes, mountains, rich soil and large plains. Stacks of food producers are harvesting and growing everything from pecans and beetroot, to sheep cheese, free-range eggs and olive oil.
