If you're short on time this 3 day itinerary allows you to experience part of the Scenic Rim Trail and stay at the exclusive Spicers Canopy eco-camp.

Set in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range just outside Brisbane, and surrounded by World Heritage listed National Parks, the Scenic Rim region is renowned for its exquisite natural beauty. The combination of rainforests, ancient volcanic plateaus, mountains, ridges, escarpments, forests as well as scenic wining and dining options has helped the Scenic Rim to quickly gain a reputation as one of Australia's most sought after gourmet walking experiences. With an abundance of unique Australian plants, native animals and distinctive vegetation types, this exciting trail embraces a region which is littered with the legend of the early pioneers who tried to make a living from the harsh but beautiful country. Your local guide will help interpret the land and its stories during each walk, many of which are on private Nature Refuge or National Park and can only be accessed via private land; making this trail one of the least frequented and most untouched walks in Australia. Each evening you'll stay at accommodations that offer a level of detailed service, panoramic scenery, comfort as well as gourmet food and wine which brings new meaning to the concept of luxury walking experiences in Australia.



Your journey starts at our meeting point on our private property at 7791 Cunningham Highway, Clumber, 4309. If you have elected to self-drive, please make your way to the above address, to meet the rest of the group and your Scenic Rim Trail guides at 8:00am on the morning of your departure. If you have pre-booked a transfer from Spicers Balfour Hotel, please be there no later than 6:30am (transfer can be arranged for a supplement). You’ll start your journey with a vehicle transfer to the Main Range National Park. The walk starts on Australia’s Great Dividing Range. Today we ascend Mt Mathieson through World Heritage Listed Rainforest tracing the historic steps of early settlers. After lunch, walkers will cross into Spicers private land and descend into camp. Keeping your eyes peeled for wallabies, you will cross open woodland forest to Spicers Canopy at around 4pm. A warm welcome from our Camp Host and onsite Chef await along with freshly made afternoon tea and cold beverages. There is now time to unwind, relax on a bean bag or in the lounge, take a dip in the hot tub and have a hot shower before meeting your group back in the main lodge for your chef-prepared, and locally sourced, evening meal. Walking distance: 13km Walking time: 7-8 hours

Meals:  L,D

If the weather is clear we highly recommend getting up early and watching the sunrise over the mountains. During the warmer months breakfast will be held earlier to make the most of the cool mornings. Walking out of camp we cross through the farm fields before descending into Oakey Creek with its morning sunlight glittering through the trees. We follow the creek before starting our ascent up the ridgeline, keeping our eyes & ears peeled for the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoo that is known to frequent this particular area. We will walk up to Cooyoonirra Lookout, a gorgeous rocky outcrop with incredible valley views, looping back to Spicers Canopy. Using a combination of trails & farm roads to reach a remote section of the Main Range National Park we put our fitness to the test as we climb higher along the ridge & over rocky outcrops before resting for lunch where we are afforded stunning views of the valley below. Dinner will be at 6pm with tales from the days adventure being shared around the table. Walking distance: 15km Walking time: 8 hours

Frequently Asked Questions

There is very minimal phone reception throughout the region. All camps have WIFI in the main lodge, and you can generally make calls over WIFI on your phone. While on the trails, we ask all guests to switch their phone to flight mode that we aren’t interrupted by the odd call or text when we get a moment of service. This allows all guests to switch off and immerse themselves into nature as well as preserving your phone battery if you wish to take photos throughout the day.
