Drives

Swapping the bustle of Brisbane city for a countryside encounter is easy. With dynamic landscapes only a short drive in every direction, the hard part is deciding which way to go. Hit the road and take your pick from rolling green hills, spectacular lakes, idyllic islands, foodie trails and charming towns.

  • Follow the changing landscape west and you'll find yourself in the Scenic Rim, Brisbane's world-heritage listed backyard.
  • For a road trip sure to satisfy your taste buds, follow the foodie trail to Southern Queensland Country’s freshest produce.
  • You won’t want to be designated driver on a wine tasting through the Granite Belt – take things at your own pace on a self-drive trail sure to delight even the most discerning palette.
  • Journey through time and discover the history of Queensland’s provincial towns – be charmed by handsome heritage buildings in Ipswich, venture to the wild west in Warwick or take a stroll along the Dalby Heritage Trail.
  • Cruise on over to the coastal towns and idyllic islands of Moreton Bay, home to beautiful bayside villages and two of the world's largest sand islands.
  • Set your GPS towards the rolling hills and green open spaces of the Country Valleys and explore sleepy towns and pristine lakes that make it hard to believe you’re only an hour away from the lights of the big city.
  • Take the scenic route and explore a wealth of natural wonders that lie right on Brisbane’s doorstep; from prehistoric boulders at Girraween National Park, to the dramatic peaks of the Great Dividing Range and the world-heritage rainforest in Lamington National Park.
  • It only takes 35 minutes behind the wheel to uncover unique experiences in Logan, from meditation at traditional Buddhist temples, to bustling Sunday markets packed with produce from Asia, Africa and Europe.
