Hit the road with our Scenic Rim drive map 

Get ready to discover the best of the Gold Coast Hinterland with our Scenic Rim Drive Map. Trust us, these are diversions to add to your next road trip.

The Scenic Rim has a reputation not just for jaw-dropping scenery, but as home to a bountiful harvest of local food and drink. Add in activities for all ages, and you have a road trip worth taking. 

Tommerup Dairy Farm


Rich soil, a subtropical climate and locals dedicated to quality produce means the Scenic Rim has become synonymous with great culinary experiences. The Scenic Rim Map will take you via some of the most popular spots to sample the region’s local flavours. 

Make time to check out Tommerup’s Dairy Farm, a sixth generation working dairy farm. On Farm Market Days, the whole family gets a taste of farm life. The kids will make a beeline for Jersey Girl ice cream and friendly farm animals. Check out the Farm Larder for award winning butter, wood smoked bacon and heritage pork, along with pastured eggs and fresh cream. 

At Towri Sheep Cheeses, the first Saturday of the month is open day, with live music, lawn games and fresh coffee served alongside honey tastings, and sheep milking demonstrations. Come back another day to try your hand at cheese making classes.

Tamborine Mountain Distillery


Produce certainly isn’t the only thing growing in this fertile soil. The Sarabah Estate Vineyard sits just outside Canungra in a quiet valley that’s home to very happy vines. Sample the house drop with a meal at The Chalet Bistro or head straight to wine tastings. The pizza bar stays hot until 8pm on Saturdays. 

At Tamborine Mountain Distillery, the team are famous for small batch liqueurs and spirits. Distillery tours, tastings, or even masterclasses are on offer, so whether you want a tipple or to spend an afternoon stepping up your knowledge of spirits, there’s plenty to keep you busy. 

Kalbar Sunflowers


Did you know the Scenic Rim is home to Australia’s largest camel farm? That’s right, Summer Land Camels & Dairy rehomes wild camels from the outback, rehabilitating and training them. The farm produces award winning Camel dairy products and skincare. Try both when you drop in or tick a camel ride off the bucket list – rides do need to be booked in advance. Go one step further and book in for a Cameleer Experience. 

At Kalbar Sunflowers, the annual Kalbar Sunflower Festival is a three-day tribute to this hard working floral. Every April, the farm opens with a slew of sunflower-themed offerings. There’s a four  acre maze, painting classes, flower crowns, market stalls and more. 

Whether you want to wine and dine, or meet the local farm animals, the Scenic Rim Drive Map has your itinerary sorted.
