The Scenic Rim is a BIG BEAUTIFUL REGION and it's ABSOLUTELY OPEN FOR VISITORS! This is Mike Webster from the Scenic Rim Brewery

PLEASE, come and sit, sip, taste, hike, swim, picnic with an alpaca, kiss a camel

and smell the flowers because the Scenic Rim is OPEN FOR BUSINESS!

 

Parts of the Scenic Rim have faced some wild weather over the Christmas period. We are thankful for the support and patience our visitors have shown for residents and local businesses at our beloved Tamborine Mountain and surrounding areas, as we work to restore what makes this part of the world so very special. While they recover, the Scenic Rim is a BIG BEAUTIFUL REGION and it’s ABSOLUTELY OPEN FOR VISITORS!

 

Tourism operators across the central and western areas of the region are open and waiting to welcome visitors with open arms and a wide Scenic Rim smile ?  and there’s operators on Tamborine Mountain and the surrounding areas that are already back OPEN.

 

Here's some great ways to show your love for the famous Scenic Rim, the place the Lonely Planet placed in the top 10 regions of the world in 2022, and the region Qantas Travel Insider has deemed one of the coolest ‘must visit’ places in 2024 (and it’s just an hour from Brisbane and the Gold Coast):

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN AND SURROUNDS:

Trees and powerlines are still down at Tamborine Mountain and the surrounding areas and a very big cleanup is still underway with many properties still without power, internet and water.

 

If you have a visit planned to support a local business, please check each operator's websites and socials before venturing up the mountain.

 

And please, don't be a sticky beak. To give locals the space to recover and allow local communities and emergency services to work as efficiently as possible, we ask that visitors please stay off the roads when possible.

 

Please show your support for the small businesses on the mountain by booking accommodation or a winery tour for next year, buy from their online stores or plan a trip to the gallery walk shops when they are back open again ?
