Digital detox

  • Switch off from technology and gadgets and enjoy the countryside of Beaudesert or Boonah.
  • With a map underarm, head for the challenging day-hike of Mount Barney. 
  • Try one of the many shorter waterfall one-hour walks at Tamborine Mountain or join a guided bicycle tour and feast on local cheeses.
  • Pack up your camping supplies and pitch a tent by Lake Moogerah or a rainforest camp site.

Local & luxurious

  • After all that physical exertion, discover the local produce, award-winning restaurants, local wines and friendly locals. 
  • Surprise your loved one with a romantic glamping escape  – luxury under the stars in a state-of-the-art tent. Or opt for one of the many B&Bs with views of local vineyards and beyond.
