The Scenic Rim Way is an east – west crossing of the Scenic Rim, connecting Aratula on the Cunningham Highway to Route 90 through to the Gold Coast and Pacific Highway.

There are numerous routes, trails and loops that will take you to quaint country towns, magnificent scenic lookouts, wineries and breweries, arts and craft boutiques, lakes and national parks, road side food stalls and some very cool places to stay a little longer.

Commencing at Nerang on the M1, the Highway 90 travels through the Scenic Rim until it meets the Cunningham Highway near the town of Aratula. This drive offers so many options and opportunities along the way. A stop for a coffee in the town of Canungra is a must. Continue to Beaudesert, the largest town in the region.

You can explore the Lost World or take the Mt Lindesay Highway to Rathdowney and Mt Barney National Park. Travel to Boonah for lunch. You can choose from a country pub or one of the many cafes in town. From here it’s only a short drive to the Cunningham Highway. You might also like to explore the Fassifern Valley and the towns of Kalbar, Harrisville and Peak Crossing.
