Scenic Rim Trail Set to Open for First Full Season
The walk allows guests to enjoy a privileged and exclusive way to engage with Australia’s natural heritage – including stunning mountains, ridges, escarpments, forests and ancient volcanic plateaus set in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and surrounded by World Heritage listed national parks. What makes this walk unique is that a large portion of the trail is on private Nature Refuge or National Park only accessible through private land; making this trail one of the least frequented, previously only touched by the early pioneers. Throughout your journey you’ll hear the tales, rituals and traditions of the region’s indigenous inhabitants – people forever woven into the natural environment of this land.
The accommodation for guests embarking on this unique walk includes Spicers Canopy and Spicers Peak Lodge. Spicers Canopy consists of 10 Luxury Safari Tents, a main lodge with open fire place, outdoor stone hot tub, a well-stocked library, central dining area, first class food and wine and dedicated hosts to take care of their every need. The final night of the trail includes a night at Spicers Peak Lodge, Australia’s highest non-alpine lodge which includes a dedicated day spa, generous lodge suites, heated infinity pool and spa, and the hatted Peak Restaurant that serves a locally sourced degustation menu, guaranteed to deliver guests a culinary taste sensation.
The Scenic Rim Trail is a two hour drive from Brisbane or 90 minutes from Toowoomba, with transfers available upon request.
