Relais & Châteaux Property Spotlight: Spicers Peak Lodge in Australia
Article Information & Social Sharing
The name of its location—Scenic Rim—may be a clue to what you’ll enjoy here, but it definitely doesn’t give all the secrets away.
Surrounded by a Brisbane’s world heritage park, Spicers Peak Lodge has an incredible natural setting. With lush rainforests, stunning mountain ranges and ancient landforms, this area is an Australian treasure, and rich in beauty and culture.
Even though you’re only two hours from Brisbane (making transportation an easy affair), with the Lodge as your host, your retreat here is sure to feel far removed from your everyday life. Wake up well-rested, overlooking the vast wilderness, and get ready for adventure! Whether biking, running or hiking, there’s thousands of acres—eight thousand acres—for you to cover; you’re right next to Main Range National Park and the Great Dividing Range, and bikes are complimentary for guests.
Or you can choose to simply take in the view from the terrace—“Whatever comes naturally,” the Lodge staff suggest. You’re close to the Granite Belt wine region, so, if putting your feet up instead of on the trail speaks to you, be prepared for variety and excellence in bottle (or glass) form.
The onsite day spa, infinity swimming pool and variety of amenities designed for your comfort are sure to help you relax at the Lodge. But be sure to perk up for meal time, you’ll want to pay attention to the amazing fare on the menu at The Peak Restaurant. With an ever-changing selection of Australian fare infused with local ingredients from regional producers, this unique, award-winning experience showcases gourmet dining at its finest. Pair with a local wine to bring it full circle!
For those wanting to get a little more entwined in the nature experience, or for groups or intimate occasions, Spicers also offers a variety of retreats to suit your Australian holiday.
