The Scenic Rim: A Great Place to Live, Work, & Play
The friendly Scenic Rim welcomes both visitors and new residents. If you’ve ever travelled through the Scenic Rim, you’ll know it’s a thriving rural paradise in the foothills of south-east Queensland’s Great Dividing Range.
The Scenic Rim is only an hour from the major cities of Brisbane and the Gold Coast but is a world apart from the hustle and bustle. Maybe you’re looking for a bit of a retirement green change. If that’s the case, the Scenic Rim is just the place to enjoy a country lifestyle and explore the great outdoors.
In the Scenic Rim, we have a thriving economy, a strong farming industry, and a vibrant arts scene with a strong community spirit and friendly locals.
The Scenic Rim boasts affordable housing, with the median price sitting at 3 per cent below the Queensland average. We are home to more than 40,000 people, and cover more than 4,000 square kilometres, from high-value agricultural land and pristine rainforests to well-serviced towns and villages.
We’re well-serviced by hospitals, modern cultural centres, libraries, and schools. We’ve also got a great selection of cafes, restaurants, old-style pubs, speciality shops, and charming country markets. in the Scenic Rim, you can also celebrate an abundance of authentically local food through the annual Eat Local Week and Winter Harvest Festival each June-July.
