This imposing rim of mountains dates back millions of years to a time when many were active volcanoes. Their legacy – Australia’s most accessible World Heritage listed rainforests and rich alluvial soils on the flats continue to be the lifeblood of the region.
Visitors are drawn to the region by the pristine rain forests and stunning natural beauty preserved in the Scenic Rim’s six National Parks.
The Scenic Rim is home to a diverse mix of communities, many of them built on the back of rural production, all situated across a stunning natural landscape. The Scenic Rim is one of Australia’s most strategically placed destinations, located just 80km from Brisbane and the Gold Coast and just across the border from Northern NSW.
