All about the Scenic Rim Trail – Guided Multi-Day Hikes.

After 7 years in the planning the full Scenic Rim Trail is opened in June 2019.

Set the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and surrounded by World Heritage Listed Gondwana Rainforest, the Scenic Rim is a regional Australian paradise waiting to be explored.

Experienced guides will lead you through a region comprised of more than 30,000 hectares of World Heritage Listed National Park, Gondwana forest, and our privately owned 2,000 hectare nature refuge.

To showcase a relatively untouched and undiscovered part of Queensland’s High Country that most people are yet to truly discover. The Scenic Rim refers to the chain of mountains, incorporating the Great Dividing Range, the Border Range and Tamborine Mountain.

    The first day of the trail delves into the history and early exploration by settlers of the little known but aweinspiring region called the Scenic Rim. The summit of Mount Mitchell is a highlight, as is the diverse flora and fauna to be found along the trail, including centuries old red cedars.

    SPICERS PEAK ASCENT (Full Day)

    The second day begins with a walk along Oakey Creek, before ascending throughout the day to Spicers Peak Lodge atop Cedar Mountain. Several stops are scheduled to take in the vistas before being welcomed at the summit with refreshments. You will then be transferred back to Spicers Canopy to relax before dinner.

    Each night on the Scenic Rim Trail is the beautiful Spicers Canopy, a complete ‘glamping’ experience with a touch of Spicers luxury.
    Each day guests can take in the sights and sounds of the Queensland bush on the trail, then return to enjoy a soak in the hot tub, a steaming hot shower and chef-prepared meals, before retiring to your soft, plush Spicers bed to re-energise for the next day.
    Each tent at Spicers Canopy features king or twin beds with fine linen and bathrobes, bedside tables and a covered deck with an armchair to take in the view. The main lodge features a generous lounge area with open fireplace, dining area and sliding doors that open out onto a wide verandah with views up to Mount Mitchell. Ideal for a pre-dinner drink or a night cap, the firepit is the perfect place to stargaze or just unwind before bed.
