Kilcoy, QLD

If getting away from it all and relaxing in the countryside is what you love, then you can’t miss Kilcoy. Just over an hour’s drive from downtown Brisbane, here you will find a landscape characterised by rolling hills, sprawling green pastures and shimmering blue lakes.


From the moment you arrive, you’ll discover a rustic and rural aspect that is both engagingly rugged and beautiful. Extensive forests and national parks surround the township, and at its fringes lay the picturesque Mount Kilcoy and Sandy Creek Valleys. A must-do is the scenic drive to Jimna to visit the striking Peach Trees Camping Ground. Also popular is a visit to Yowie Park for a picnic amongst the weeping willows and water birds, overlooking the stunning Greensill Lake.

But it’s not all about the views in Kilcoy – there are plenty of activities in the region as well. Fresh water fishing, sailing, waterskiing and canoeing are possible on nearby Lake Somerset. Local wineries are open for tastings, and Four Wheel Drive enthusiasts will revel in the challenging Landcruiser Mountain Park, 22 kilometres north of Jimna.
