The Scenic Rim has been named as one of the top global travel spots in 2022. And the title is well-deserved: the region is rich in breathtaking mountain hikes, camping, and adventure spots, as well as wineries you can sip at. While we recommend experiencing the Scenic Rim during a weekend getaway, you can also drive out there on a day trip from Brisbane. There are plenty of hidden gems to find: like Kooroomba Vineyards and Lavender Farm.
This lush spot is just 1.5 hours driving from Brisbane and makes for the perfect day outdoors: whether it be walking through the lavender fields and enjoying the mountain views, tasting the local vino, or dining at the gourmet restaurant on-site. Kooroomba is also a popular wedding venue, with a picturesque chapel on the property for lovers to tie the knot in.
Aside from Kooroomba being a choice spot for photography, food, and wine, they also sell their own lavender-infused products straight from the farm to the Gift Shop. Think lavender lip balm, deodorant, as well as lavender soap, bath milk, and more.
