Six Day Walk Scenic Rim Trail

Project overview

Across the South East Queensland border lies part of the 180 million year old, Heritage Listed Gondwana Rainforests. The rainforests are like those that once covered the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana but have reduced to these isolated pockets on the east coast.

With our support, Spicers Retreats have opened the Scenic Rim Trail for a world class, long-range six-day and five night walking experience.

Under the Spicer's offering, up to twelve guided walkers will be able to hike to a new location and stay overnight in low-impact sustainable eco-camps. The two new low-impact sustainable eco-camps, within the Main Range National Park, will complement four existing sites adjacent to the national park. Each eco-camp includes modular prefabricated buildings with connecting walkways, water tanks and solar energy.

Infrastructure completed includes:

  • Amphitheatre Eco-camp
  • Timber Getters Eco-camp
  • improved public facilities including vehicle parking at the trail head and public bush camps
  • completion of new public walking trails
  • training of local guides.
