Brisbane & the Scenic Rim

Explore Brisbane and the Scenic Rim and its rural mountains

Often passed over for other destinations in jam-packed Queensland, subtropical capital city Brisbane and the Scenic Rim on its rural mountainous outskirts deserve a longer stay and closer inspection.

Australia’s third most populous city has the most varied topography of all Australian capitals. Cleaved by the winding Brisbane River, and sundered by the landscape’s shifting elevations, Brisbane’s neighbourhoods have developed distinct personalities. Small and walkable, the CBD is packed with history. South Bank has a popular man-made swimming beach, while edgy Fortitude Valley buzzes with shops, restaurants and clubs. The Valley is linked to upscale Kangaroo Point by the heritage-listed Story Bridge, Australia’s longest steel cantilever span.

Just an hour into the city’s lush hinterland, the Scenic Rim brims with brilliant national parks, bountiful native wildlife as well as outstanding food and wine. Comprised of a semi-circular group of volcanic mountains, Scenic Rim offers a plethora of outdoor opportunities plus the kind of authentic rural hospitality which sees locals happily yakking with you at the pub.
