Scenic Rim Trail

5 or 8 days
Ex Brisbane



One of Australia’s best walks, take in the tranquillity of Queensland’s Scenic Rim on a moderately challenging accommodated walking adventure.

Take in the beauty of Southern Queensland as you hike through picturesque Main Range National Park. 

Choose between our 5 or 8 day packages, combining a short stay in the state’s capital Brisbane before either a 2 or 5 night walk across beautiful mountains, forests and volcanic plateaus. Experienced guides will lead you through some of the undiscovered parts of Southern Queensland, keeping an eye-out for native wildlife and explaining the history and geology of the region.

Trek along mountain ridges, look down on serene valleys and hike through pristine forests, resting each night at a selection of Spicers Retreats’ superb properties. At the end of each day enjoy the comforts of hot-showers, delicious food and comfortable bush accommodation.

Queensland’s multicultural capital Brisbane is easily reached by air from every capital city in Australia.

Spicers have a number of other properties easily combinable with the Scenic Rim walk. A short stay in Brisbane before or after your walk at Spicers Balfour is ideal, or travel north to the Sunshine Coast’s lush hinterland, staying at either Spicers Tamarind Retreat of Spicers Clovelly Estate. All are famous for their quality accommodations and top-notch cuisine.
