Brisbane’s Backyard: A Special Vineyard on the Scenic Rim Wine Trail

Kooroomba scenic rim Kangaroo Lavender Farm

We were having a fantastic weekend around Mount Barney, and not ready to end it just yet. So we decided to explore a bit the Scenic Rim Wine Trail on our way back to Brisbane. We chose to stop at Kooroomba as we were intrigued to see a lavender farm in the area.

What an excellent choice! It was the perfect destination to close the bracket of our great gateway to Mount Barney! We loved the views of the many peaks of the Scenic Rim region (easy to identify with the PeakFinder app). The extra special touch of lavender created a unique atmosphere.

The wine tasting was a bit quick (only four wines) but still a nice experience to make us wait for a table at the restaurant. The sophisticated menu was a great surprise with plenty of choices full of originality. We all had to try in each other’s plates as we were intrigued by what we were eating and discovering news tastes. The food was delicious and well presented, in such a lovely setting – what else could we ask for? I was utterly charmed.

Best time to visit is from May to October – when lavender blooms.

Where is Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm?

Kooroomba Vineyards and Lavender Farm is in Mount Alford on the Scenic Rim. It takes just over 1 hour to drive there from Brisbane.
