Gold Coast's Scenic Rim Getaways and Escapes

Discover the beauty of Gold Coast's Scenic Rim and surrounding areas while you stay at one of the charming retreats in the picturesque Gold Coast Hinterland. Very accesible and huddled just behind and to the west of Gold Coast, the area has beautiful waterfalls, stunning mountain vistas and beautiful hidden retreats and bed and breakfast accommodation.

Explore the towns like Beaudesert, Tamborine and fantastic local produce on a weekend getaway using some of the fine accommodation there, lodges retreats and bed and breakfast are all there to tempt you.  Our Operations base is Beaudesert to we know it all very well, every corner, every valley ! 

Try the great food as you follow one of the wine trails, and of course combine it all with an experience you've always wanted to try, a flight on a hot air balloon. 
We have put together accomodation packages with some of the best in the Scenic Rim and can tie together all the pieces of a great weekend escape for you.

It’s an ideal combination to experience Hot Air Balloon Gold Coast and afterwards enjoy a short getaway to the peace and tranquillity at Tamborine Mountain Witches Falls Cottages. Stay there and explore the Tamborine Mt shopping and the restaurants at Gallery Walk, the wine tasting and the cheese factories, nestle up around the fire in winter or enjoy some mountain biking in summer. Choose another place to stay, such as Wallaby Ridge Retreat, beautiful and affordable Canungra accommodation in a secluded bushland setting in the foothills of the Scenic Rim. Wallaby Ridge Retreat is perfect spot for that short break from Brisbane. These Gold Coast hinterland properties offer special packages with Hot Air ballooning early one morning, a really unique and romantic getaway idea.

Explore our site for other suggestions and ideas such as a day exploring all the Scenic Rim food and wine trails through Tamborine, Beaudesert,  Boonah and Canungra.
