Located on a 9,000 acre cattle station in Queensland’s Scenic Rim, with views over the Main Range National Park and the Great Dividing Range, and near to the Granite Belt wine region, Spicers Peak Lodge has a pretty enviable position.
There are just ten suites and two private lodges at Spicers Peak Lodge, all designed to blend seamlessly in with the surroundings without compromising on luxury. Muted tones mix with fireplaces in some rooms, while the Spa Suites also have spa baths. For ultimate privacy however opt for one of the private lodges that are hidden amongst the eucalyptus trees with spectacular views across the valley.
The Peak restaurant is fantastic, made even more so due to its great position with wonderful mountain views. Most of the food is made from local produce, and at supper we recommend the infamous seven course degustation menu. Close to the Granite Belt region, the wine is (unsurprisingly) delicious. Having washed down your seven courses with the perfectly paired wine, explore the region it came from. There are over 40 vineyards in the nearby Granite Belt, so more than enough choice for even the most discerning connoisseur.
After indulging at the peak restaurant - it's hard not to - walk off the calories on guided bush walks, or go mountain biking, riding and fishing. Alternatively, for simple r n' r head to the newly built spa, or relax by the infinity pool.
Spicers Peak Lodge is the highest non-alpine lodge in the whole of Australia.
