About the walk

With a focus on discovering the dramatic southern sector of the Scenic Rim Trail, our 2- day walk traverses the heights of spectacular Mt Mathieson, immerses you in the peaceful valley of Oakey Creek, and ascends to the sensory indulgences of Spicers Peak Lodge. Your home base for the two nights is Spicers Canopy Luxury Tents, located at the mid-point of the walk. Here you’ll enjoy a unique glamping experience, including a soothing hot tub and hearty communal lounge complete with a roaring fireplace and country kitchen. Our passionate, knowledgeable guides will happily share the history of the land and the stories of the outdoors with you as you go, making the walk as informative as it is enjoyable.

Today's Walk

Walking out of camp we cross through the farm fields before descending into Oakey Creek with it’s morning sunlight glittering through the trees.

We follow the creek before starting our ascent up the ridgeline, keeping our eyes & ears peeled for the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoo that is known to frequent this particular area.

Using a combination of trails & farm roads to reach a remote section of the Main Range National Park we put our fitness to the test as we climb higher along the ridge & over rocky outcrops before resting for lunch where we are afforded stunning views of the valley below.

Possible wildlife encounter Glossy Black Cockatoo
Returning to Camp
