River, stream, or creek camping near Beaudesert with fishing guide

Overview

At the heart of the Scenic Rim region, the pint-sized town of Beaudesert provides a welcome change of pace to the busy Gold Coast resorts to the east. Soak up the laid-back atmosphere as you browse the farmer’s markets, dine at country restaurants, and check into the local caravan park. Beaudesert’s biggest asset is its location. Choose Brisbane or the Gold Coast beaches—both an hour’s drive away—or explore the vineyards and artisan towns of the surrounding Hinterlands. For an outdoor adventure, there are six national parks nearby.

Where to go

Around Wyaralong Dam

Just west of Beaudesert, the verdant shores of Lake Wyaralong have more than 40 kilometers of hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding trails to explore. Take in the views from Mt Joyce, picnic by the lakeside, then pitch your tent at a waterfront camping ground. In the summer, water sports, including kayaking and canoeing, are popular along the lake.

Gold Coast Hinterlands

East of Beaudesert, Tamborine Mountain is the star of the Gold Coast hinterlands, where you can hike to waterfalls, spot wildlife along the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk, or enjoy wine tasting at a boutique winery. Another must-visit destination is the Springbrook National Park. Enjoy bushwalking and camping in the Numinbah Valley, then discover the glowworm caves of the Natural Bridge. 

South Scenic Rim

The southern section of the Scenic Rim region is home to some of its wildest landscapes. Head into the Lamington National Park to hike through UNESCO-listed rainforest, discover hidden waterfalls, and sleep at remote bush camps. To the west, Mount Barney National Park has summit climbs to challenge the most experienced hikers and backcountry campsites in the heart of the bush.  

When to go

The hinterlands are a year-round destination, but the best weather for outdoor activities is from late autumn to early spring (April through September). Markets and events are held on weekends throughout the year, and this is the liveliest time to visit. Summer (December through February) campers should prepare for hot weather—daytime temperatures can reach over 30°C—and frequent downpours.

Know before you go

  • Buses connect Beaudesert to Brisbane and the Gold Coast, but having your own transport is useful for exploring the hinterlands and national parks.
  • Beaudesert has a selection of shops and restaurants, but for specialist camping gear, it’s best to head to Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
  • Fire bans are common in Queensland during summer and dry periods, so check local recommendations before lighting a fire.
  • Camping permits are required to camp within Queensland’s national parks and must be reserved in advance.
