Explore the splendour of Queensland’s Scenic Rim wilderness during summer while indulging in luxury with a new 4-day guided walk package from Spicers Retreats.

Spicers Canopy view (re-size)Featuring a maximum of just 10 guests, the Scenic Rim Trail is a world-class, outdoor adventure where nature lovers can experience 5-star accommodation, food and wine while exploring one of Australia’s most scenic wilderness areas.

This exclusive guided walk will take you on a journey of discovery through the Scenic Rim region two hour’s drive south-west of Brisbane; a stunning collection of mountains, ridges, escarpments, forests and ancient volcanic plateaus set in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and surrounded by World Heritage-listed national parks.

And with summer on the way, now is the perfect time to drink in the luscious greens and rich colours that coat the landscape with a vibrancy unseen in the cooler months.

The package is more about rest and relaxation than rough and ready and includes three nights’ luxury accommodation – two nights at glamorous camping getaway Spicers Canopy; and one night at nearby Spicers Peak Lodge, located high on a mountaintop with views that will take your breath away.

Spicers Canopy waterhole (re-size)All food throughout your stay is included, including gourmet breakfasts, lunches and banquet dinners, a seven course degustation at award-winning restaurant The Peak on your final night, all beverages including beer and wine, and transfers. Packages start from $1899* per person.

The adventure winds its way through the private 5000 acre Spicers Peak Nature Refuge and Main Range National Park, where professional guides will match the route to lead the experienced hiker or casual ambler.

By day, discover deep creek canyons, crystal clear water holes, sub-tropical rainforests, open fields, caves and spectacular limestone cliffs under the guide of colourful bushman guide Russell ‘Jacko’ Jackson.

You’ll also spot abundant wildlife like wallabies, birds, lizards, frogs and small marsupials, learn about the fascinating Aboriginal history of the land and discover the story behind the region’s early settlers.

Spicers Canopy -Interior-King-Bed-HR_0 (re-size)By night, sleep under the stars in luxurious safari-style tents at Spicers Canopy, which features an outdoor fire pit, hot showers and a grand timber lodge with fireplace and open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining areas.

On the final night, the walk culminates with luxurious overnight accommodation and a seven course degustation dinner at the renowned Spicers Peak Lodge, which overlooks the valleys and bushland you’ve just explored.

Soothe your tired limbs at Spicers Peak Lodge’s dedicated day spa, Spa Anise, soak in the magnificent surroundings and reflect on the past three days with a glass of the finest French champagne in hand.

Walkers can choose from the Gourmet Explorer, designed for those with a love of good food and wine and including activities such as wine-tasting, or the Native Adventurer, which offers a more scenic and challenging adventure for advanced walkers.

It’s nature by day, luxury by night and an experience not to be missed.
