Spicers Hidden Vale

Grandchester, Ipswich Area

Indicative Rate * AU$349 to AU$499

Spicers Hidden Vale, the luxurious country retreat at Grandchester, just 30 minutes' drive from Ipswich, has so much to offer it's easier to list what you can't do. Perched on top a ridge with sweeping mountain views, it's a popular holiday getaway as well as hosting conferences and weddings.

An original historic homestead houses the award-winning Homage Restaurant, and accommodation over-looking the 12,000-acre working farm consists of heritage cottages with one to four bedrooms, with everything you could need for luxurious air-conditioned comfort. Sit on your verandah and watch kangaroos hop by or laze by the pool with heated spa. It's heaven!

There's no end of activities, such as mountain bike riding, bush-walking, tennis, swimming, bocce, croquet, the animal farm, and you can even take an early morning hot air balloon ride, returning to Spicers Hidden Vale for breakfast.

Packages include Hidden Vale Gourmet Getaway, Romantic Getaway and Spa Getaway, where you'll be pampered at the on-site Spa Anise - a popular service for girls' weekends away. And if you're at Spicers on a Sunday, you'll enjoy the sell-out jazz afternoons.

Tully Gorge National Park

Tully, Cassowary Coast Area
Free Entry
In this park, the Tully River plunges down the Cardwell Range, through the densely forested Tully Gorge, in Australia's wettest area, part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Heavy rainfall encourages lush tropical vegetation and ensures plenty of white-water on the Tully River.

Little Millstream Falls

Ravenshoe, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
Plunging over the edge of a columnar basalt lava flow, Big Millstream Falls is reputedly the widest single-drop waterfall in Australia. A walking track leads to a viewing area over the falls. Here, in the rainshadow of the eastern dividing ranges, the dry, open woodland vegetation is dominated by eucalypts.

Tully Falls and Tully Gorge

Ravenshoe, Tablelands Area
