Start Your Taste Discoveries

Updated: Jan 6

The Scenic Rim is an area of outstanding beauty just 1 hour’s drive southwest of Brisbane. Fertile agricultural valleys nestle between ancient volcanic mountain ranges. The region is full of quaint heritage villages and stunning National Parks.

The Scenic Rim excels as a food bowl for Brisbane and beyond. The rich alluvial soil grows crops such as carrots, beans and corn. The farmers change the crops with the seasons. In recent years, many boutique farming enterprises have called the Scenic Rim home. There is everything from sheep’s cheese to mushrooms, olives to garlic, wine and beer and so much more. Award winning artisan food producers abound in the region. Many Brisbane chefs now source key ingredients from the Scenic Rim.

For serious foodies looking for unique, tasty and fresh ingredients, the Scenic Rim has it all. Food lovers of all ages flock to the region. Farmgate trails, bring an empty esky days, Eat Local Week and various country markets are key food experience highlights.

Local businesses are also flourishing by value adding the fresh produce. It’s not just jams and pickles (though they are pretty good!) but also, unique products such as artisan handcrafted carrot soap, sheep cheeses or camel milk vodka.

There is a real passion from the growers and producers in the Scenic Rim. They value the clean air and healthy environment and the 'terroir' of the region. Many producers are committed to the health benefits of their products, such as camel milk, sheep’s cheese, or mushrooms.

Local Taste Discoveries takes small groups of 10 off the beaten track. You get a chance to meet the growers and producers and learn more about the provenance behind the products. It’s a full day out, picking your own fresh vegies in the morning, meeting growers and producers all day, until relaxing with a glass of local wine in the late afternoon.

Our Scenic Rim Farm Gate Discovery Tours are the perfect way to immerse yourself in our region for a day.
