Is the Hazelwood Estate the Scenic Rim’s Best Luxury Escape?

Competition is fierce among hoteliers in the Scenic Rim.

A stone’s throw from Brisbane and the Gold Coast, this spectacular volcanic caldera lures a legion of stressed-out city-dwellers each weekend. And with its world heritage-listed rainforests, vibrant art galleries, fabulous farm-to-table restaurants, and boutique vineyards and breweries, it’s not hard to see why.  

A slew of luxurious lodgings has sprung up to meet the ever-increasing demand. From riverfront glamping resorts to rustic rainforest retreats, holidaymakers are spoilt for choice here.

But the Rim’s latest offering might be the most luxurious lodging of the lot.

The Location

Located near the Binna Burra section of the Lamington National Park, the Hazelwood Estate is the perfect base for a nature escape.

A network of jaw-dropping trails traverses the ancient Gondwana rainforest, taking in stunning views of the lush, mountainous terrain. You could spend days meandering past its bubbling brooks and serene streams— Lamington is a hiker’s paradise.

If wining and dining is more your jam, there’s a smorgasbord of superb Scenic Rim establishments to try nearby, not to mention the estate’s in-house gourmet restaurant. Fertile volcanic soil has seen the Rim become Queensland’s top wine-making region—don’t miss its brilliant boutique vineyards.

The Estate

Set amid green rolling hills, this privately-owned waygu farm has been converted into a luxurious country retreat. Secluded standalone King Farm Cabins and Luxury Pavilions offer utmost exclusivity. Each features floor-to-ceiling windows that open out onto a panoramic outdoor deck.

The uber-glam pavilions boast a cosy sitting room with a fireplace and free-standing tub. It’s a top spot to snuggle up during the cooler winter months.

At the Paddock Restaurant, chefs source ingredients straight from local markets and producers (or Hazlewood’s own beehive and veggie garden). The team of gastronomic gurus follows a strict paddock-to-plate philosophy to ensure every meal is 100% fresh.

If you fancy a proper good pampering, treat yourself at the Spa by Hazelwood Estate. This serene sanctuary offers facials, massage, rubs, scrubs, and wraps to soothe the body and soul. Eminence Organic Skincare products revitalise the skin and restore your youthful glow.
