Wedding Trail Map

The biggest wedding event in the Scenic Rim is about to take place and you’re invited!  Welcome to the first ever Scenic Rim Wedding Trail taking place on Sunday, 23rd July 2023.

The Scenic Wedding Trail is the perfect opportunity to include your family and friends as you embark on your wedding planning journey!  The countryside in the Scenic Rim is uniquely beautiful and can easily be explored from ground, or air!  Just one hour from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, the Scenic Rim is a spectacular natural beauty in the South East Queensland.

With four venues opening their doors across the Scenic Rim for the Wedding Trail, getting to all can be a little tricky in 5 hours if not planned well.  To assist with planning your trail to all four venues, we suggest starting on the East or West side.  We plan to trail the day across all four locations (allowing a good 30 minutes at each venue) to meet with suppliers, and draw inspiration from the incredible settings on display.  If you’re traveling from the Gold Coast, we suggest starting at The Grounds Estate followed by Rosewood Estate then Mount French Lodge, and finishing at White Chapel Kalbar.  For couples planning to travel from Brisbane, we suggest the same order in reverse.

We think visiting four venues is manageable but if you want to visit a select few, that’s fine too!  Just be sure to register your attendance at the Welcome Station upon your arrival at each location.  Let our Wedding Trail Map assist with planning your big day!

Where to stay

Stay where sophisticated style affectionately embraces country charm at Spicers Hidden Vale.  Set on 12,000 acres an home to Homage Restaurant.  Or discover 8,000 acres of true Australian wilderness at Spicers Peak Lodge, a luxury all-inclusive lodge.  If a secluded rural homestead is what you seek, explore the beauty of Skyline Farmhouse.  Alternatively, if you’re looking for an Advanced Ecotourism retreat nestled at the base of Queensland’s most impressive peak, explore Mt Barney Lodge.  Last but not least, is the Scenic Rim’s newest luxury retreat, VH Country Estate.  Also available for small weddings and elopements.  Watch this space!

Places to eat

No visit to the Scenic Rim would be complete without sampling award winning local wine.  Head to Canungra Valley Vineyards and grab a picnic basket to relax by the picturesque vines.  Or stop by The Overflow Estate 1895 to enjoy a French inspired menu by Two French Chefs.  If a rainforest setting is more your go-to, head to Rainforest Restaurant at Cedar Creek Lodges.  If you prefer a good all-round meal with a beer at a handsome, traditional stone pub, look no further than St Bernards Hotel.  We strongly recommend making a booking wherever you decide to stop along the Trail!
