Scenic Rim Vineyards
The Scenic Rim wine growing area lies in the eroded interior of an ancient shield volcano. The northern end at Marburg is on the edge of the fertile Lockyer Valley, with other vineyards scattered through Purga, Harrisville, Boonah, Mt Alford and the rugged valleys of the Southern Border ranges. Also encompassing the rainforest beauty of Mt Tamborine and the emerald countryside of Albert River and Canungra.
The cellar doors and restaurants of this region operate from historic homesteads and buildings, and offer the visitor an exceptional wine tourism experience. The Scenic Rim incorporates the cooler climate of Mt Tamborine through to the milder climates of Albert River and Canungra Valley, and the inland fertile valleys which allows a diverse range of grape varieties to be grown
Grapevines were planted at Purga as early as the 1870’s, with wine being exported to the UK and Europe where they won numerous gold medals. The industry then went into decline until its resurgence in 1984 with the planting of Ironbark Ridge. Since then many more vineyards have been planted, all boutique in size and unique in character. Being so close to Brisbane and the Gold Coast, the Scenic Rim wine region is in a great starting point for your Queensland wine tourism experience.
