Tourism is one of the Scenic Rim’s major industries, and it’s not hard to see why!
Located only one hour’s drive from Brisbane or the Gold Coast, but a whole world away.
Think mountains, rainforest, lakes, waterfalls, birds and kangaroos. Then there’s the clean air, patchwork fields, happy cows, and friendly locals.
The Scenic Rim is home to 17 wineries, three breweries, and two distilleries and offers a number of outstanding gourmet experiences.
More than 1.3million visitors experienced the Scenic Rim in 2016, with the tourism industry providing over 10% of the region’s jobs.
The vision of the Council’s Scenic Rim Tourism Strategy for 2016-2021 is to grow value of tourism to $300 million by 2021.
