Back to Nature Weekend Getaways in Brisbane

The Scenic Rim region of Brisbane offers you a weekend respite in the folds of nature. Make sure you pack proper bushwalking shoes in order to explore the verdant trail surroundings of Lake Wyaralong as well as the Lower Portals Walk located around the base of beautiful Mt Barney. There is also a very interesting Sculpture Park overseeing the Wyaralong Dam that is quite an interesting browse. You can spend a night at the Lillydale Farm where kids can pet the animals and help with daily chores. Or best of all you can set up camp besides a bubbling brook and spend the night under a blanket of stars and look forward to heading back to the Brisbane CBD for creature comforts at contemporary apartment hotels.
