Do

Step out on the Scenic RimMaryvale, Queensland

Muscles feeling a little atrophied with all the iso stagnation? Get into the great outdoors and get those legs pumping again with Spicers Scenic Rim Summer Walks. 

Relax, though, because it’s not all hard work. Ease into it with your fellow walkers over lunch before being taken by helicopter to Spicers Mount Mistake. As you soar above farmlands and mountains, you’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the glorious mountain range you are about to conquer. 

The following three days will be spent exploring some of Australia’s most beautiful landscapes and staying in purpose-built accommodation, including the Spicers Treehouse.

By day you'll traverse various landscapes and ecosystems including rainforests, red cedar-filled national parks and valley floors where you'll have the opportunity to cool off in natural spring waterholes. Stare out over Fassifern Valley before finally arriving at Spicers Peak Lodge – it’s 1,100 metres above sea level and on 3,000 hectares of pristine wilderness. Here you’ll feast at the award-winning, five-star Peak Restaurant. At night you’ll bunk in sustainable eco-cabins. Sound good? Do it!
