Southern Queensland Country Country Life

These days it’s easy to get caught up in the productive buzz of the city and eat sleep and breathe your inbox. If you’re in need of less screen time, then a taste of the country life might do you some good.

Hightail it to your closest farm stay and experience what it’s like to live in the country - feed the chooks, milk a cow, crack a whip (or try to!). Then wrap up your day with a horse ride through the blissful country side.

If you’re short on time, jump in the car for some of the most scenic drives Queensland has to offer and be sure to pack a picnic as you’ll be spoilt for choice to eat amidst lush tranquillity from Girraween National Park to the Bunya Mountains or Queen Mary Falls.

Whether you’re after a weekend getaway or you just have an afternoon to explore there’s more than enough on offer in this region to get you back to basics and enjoy the simple things.
