DIVERSE LANDSCAPES AND ABUNDANT WILDLIFE.
Scenic Rim refers to the chain of mountains, incorporating the Great Dividing Range, the Border Range and Tamborine Mountain, which wrap around the fertile valleys.

Come and feast from our delicious smorgasbord of fresh produce, gourmet delicacies and award-winning wines, liqueurs and locally- crafted beers. Meet the region’s producers, visit the farms and have an authentic, memorable food experience.
