Experience country charm surrounded by the acres of true Australian bush

Property reviewed by Rachael Mannell

It’s hard to believe Brisbane is only an hour away from this hilltop gem. Designed in the style of a traditional Australian homestead, the beautifully restored cottages are scattered around the grounds, providing a charming country welcome without compromising on luxury.

Lounge by the infinity pool, or make the most of the other on-site perks including massages and body wraps at the Spa Anise; tennis or clay shooting, a spot of archery. For the more adventurous guest, take off into the great outdoors on foot, mountain bike or enjoy a sunset 4WD tour complete with drinks and the chance to watch the last rays of the day fade over some of Queensland’s most beautiful countryside.

If you’re a foodie, you’ll love the culinary delights from Homage, the award-winning restaurant featuring unique dishes of local emu and pastured squab. Can't get enough of the stunning surrounds? Order a gourmet picnic hamper with a selection of locally sourced meats, cheeses, baguettes and quiche to enjoy while bird watching or just kicking back.

Planning your wedding? The beautifully maintained grounds at Spicers Hidden Vale provide an inspiring luxury wedding venue for your ceremony. From shady nooks to sun-drenched lawns there’s sure to be a space that catches your eye and steals your heart. There are also several elegant indoor spaces available in and around the homestead, or you can choose to marry at one of the local churches before settling in to Spicers Hidden Vale for the reception.
