A full day in the countryside discovering the amazing sights, tastes and stories of the Scenic Rim.
Just an hour south of Brisbane is the amazing Scenic Rim region with its World Heritage listed rainforests, spectacular mountain ranges, rich agricultural soils and historical townships. Some of the region’s freshest produce is being delivered to households and businesses throughout the greater Brisbane area through the Scenic Rim Farm Box. Local Taste Discoveries has partnered with the Scenic Rim Farm Box to offer our full day Scenic Rim Farm Gate Discovery.
Meet some of the farmers and providers, enjoy tastings of their products, hear their stories and soak up the vistas and the fresh air so abundant in “The Switzerland of Queensland”; otherwise known as the Scenic Rim!
Self-drive “tag along” option also available if you prefer to come in your own vehicle or if our people mover is booked on your preferred date.
With its rich soils, high altitude, and cool climate, Queensland’s “Granite Belt” is the state’s premier wine growing region. Sirromet Wines grow their grapes in the Granite Belt which is situated 2.5 hours from Brisbane. However, their award winning wines are made at their stunning winery just east of Brisbane.
On this half-day tour, you will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes, and experience Sirromet’s state-of-the-art winery, and gain insight into their wine making process. Then it’s time to sample some of their product with a private wine tasting experience.
What better way to round out an awesome day then by relaxing with a chef-prepared lunch featuring local produce on the Tuscan Terrace. With the expansive views across the rolling hills of the Sirromet estate and a complementary glass of wine in hand, you won’t want to leave.
Join us for our half-day Camel Farm Discovery where you will visit Australia’s largest camel dairy and wild camel training facility. Summer Land Camels is home to approximately 700 camels, and is situated on 850 acres among the stunning mountain ranges of the Scenic Rim.
You can get up-close and personal with some friendly camels (there’s often babies too) before sampling a selection of Summer Land’s multi-award winning camel milk products, while also enjoying a cup of tea or coffee on the verandah of the historic homestead.
Next is a fascinating tour of the camel dairy and training facilities where you will learn so much from the experienced cameleers.
After the farm tour, you will experience a chef-prepared lunch featuring various camel products and stunning mountain views.
Local Taste Discoveries has a variety of customised full and half-day tour options available exclusively for private groups of 4 – 10 guests.
However, if your group has a particular Taste Discovery that you would like to discuss we would be delighted to help you out.
Would you like to discover local coffee, chocolate, rum, or wine? Why chose when you can join us on our full day Local Indulgence Discovery and you will have it all!
We start the day at Zarraffas Coffee headquarters and roastery. With the smell of roasting coffee beans in the air, you will be guided on a coffee growing, roasting, and tasting discovery. Next door is Beenleigh Artisan Distillery. The incredible history of this iconic distillery is matched only by the rums they create. Three tasting options to choose from.
To satisfy those sweet cravings, we then head just down the road to Poppy’s Chocolate. Regarded by experts as Australia’s No.1 Chocolatier, there is something for everyone at Poppy’s.
Finally, we head to Sirromet Wines to relax with a sumptuous lunch on the Tuscan Terrace before going on a “behind the scenes” winery tour and private tasting of some of their award winning wines.
