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.
