Pine Rivers

When you visit Brisbane, you’ll be amazed just how quick and easy it is to find yourself immersed in lush hills and rainforests. In less than half an hour from the city, the verdant beauty of Pine Rivers is worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of town.

From the lofty heights of Mount Glorious, Mount Nebo and Mount Mee, to the tranquil shores of Lake Samsonvale, this is the ideal place to get away from it all. Nature takes over here, and it is impossible but to succumb to its beauty.

Yet interspersed throughout the region, in perfect harmony with the surroundings, you will find a range of outdoor adventure options and a healthy dose of pure indulgence.

Visit the charming country villages of Dayboro and Samford, with their antique stores and welcoming B&Bs. Enjoy a coffee, some quality dining or really pamper yourself with an overnight stay.

From a Mount Glorious restaurant, marvel at the spectacular views of Moreton Bay and islands in the distance. Tour the local vineyards, country delicatessens and provisions stores filled with chutneys, sauces and jams.

The Sunday markets at North Pine Country Park are worth a visit, as you never know what you might find. Then, for the kids, feeding the deer at the deer farm is always popular, as is getting close to the animals at the zoo in Dakabin.

If you’d like to get a bit active, there are plenty of exciting activities in Pine Rivers. Take part in a game of skirmish, go horse riding through the valley floor of Kurwongbah on a moonlit night, enjoy an adventure escapade, go on a four wheel drive hinterland excursion or play a leisurely round of golf at one of several clubs in the Shire.
