Nestled beneath the magnificent Glen Rock, Esk is a beautifully kept town with a range of cafes, gift and antique stores and sites to explore.

As you drive into Esk, leave your cares and worries behind you. Your first stop is the Esk Visitor Information Centre on Ipswich Street where you can get travel tips from the locals. Drop in and see the friendly team of volunteers who are always happy to share their local knowledge with visiting tourists. Whilst you are there be sure to visit the Glen Rock Gallery and see the latest exhibition of local artwork.

After driving up the steep incline of Highland Street, you will arrive at Lakeview Park Lookout. There you will see stunning views which stretch across to Wivenhoe Dam and beyond. With shaded picnic tables and breathtaking views, Lakeview Park Lookout is a prime spot for a picnic lunch.

Back on the main street, take a stroll and discover the many unique gift and antique stores. There are a number of locally owned cafes and restaurants that offer real country hospitality and delicious meals.

For those who enjoy getting active in the outdoors, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is a must visit. Explore the disused rail corridor which connects Esk to the towns of Coominya and Toogoolawah. The old Esk Railway Station was built in 1886 and today it's a popular meeting spot for groups using the trail, as well as history buffs who like to reminisce the days when the old steam trains used to pull into the station.

Just outside of Esk, many adventures await at Ottaba Llamas where you can do a guided tour with a llama along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail and see many other friendly farm animals. The Ostrich and Fish Farm also has an array of farm animals and visitors can enjoy a slice of farm life as they wander through the 100 acre property just outside of Esk.

Esk is the gateway to all the hidden delights of the Somerset region such as Lake Wivenhoe and Lake Somerset.
