The Scenic Rim
What a well kept secret the Scenic Rim has been, only 1 hour from Brisbane and/or the Gold Coast. When you think, hear or read about the south east corner of Queensland it is always Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast or the Gold Coast that comes to mind but for a truely all-round experience we will now include the Scenic Rim. The area includes the country towns of Beaudesert, Boonah, Canungra, Kalbar, Kooralbyn, Rathdowney, Tamborine Mountain and Aratula. It is host to a number of National parks, two lakes in Lake Maroon and Lake Moogerah. It is a vegetable growing area nestled in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, with easy access to a number of spectacular lookouts, waterfalls and well maintained walking tracks not to mention some great 4WD areas for beginners.
We based ourselves at the Kalbar Showgrounds and enjoyed 7 days exploring the surrounds. The Showgrounds is a great spot, only $110/week for power, water, hot showers, large grassy sites, a dump point and great caretakers in Russ and Sandra. Although the district received some well sortafter rain during this week we were still able to visit and enjoy many of the local attractions. These included:
This morning we will pack up and the BT-50 will take on the challenge of Cunningham's Gap towing the van en route to Warwick. Will let you know how we fared when we get to the Darling Downs.
