Spicers Scenic Rim Trail, a beautiful five-day ecotourism experience in South East Queensland’s Scenic Rim will welcome its first walkers later this year.

The 55 kilometre trail that stretches from Mt Mistake to Spicers Peak Nature Reserve through parts of Main Range National Park, takes in sub-tropical rainforests, eucalypt forests and mountain heathlands.

Privately-funded by Queensland’s Turner Family with an investment of $10 million, the Scenic Rim Trail will extend existing walking tracks and include two new sustainable eco-camps, as well as improvements to public camping and hiking facilities.


Construction of the walking track and eco-cabins will take around six months to complete, with the first tourists expected in late 2019.

Founder of Spicers Retreats and Spicers Scenic Rim Trail Jude Turner said she felt Queensland deserved to be represented in the Great Walks of Australia collection with an experience that could rival guided walks in other parts of Australia and New Zealand.

“The Spicers Scenic Rim Trail will do just that,” she said.


Queensland’s Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones Ecotourism was a natural choice for Queensland.

“We also know that projects like this will have a positive impact on our environment in the long-term. By showing more people the natural beauty of our rainforests, we’re promoting conservation of our national parks,” she said.
