Tough day on the farm

I don’t think this is coming out any time soon.

We’ve loved the rain – now the grass is growing so fast there’s lots of slashing to do.

But we need to watch out for those bog holes – this tractor’s not going anywhere!

Scenic Rim named in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 regions in the world

Scenic Rim - Lonely Planet Top 10 Region

Global travel authority Lonely Planet has today announced their Best in Travel 2022, three lists encompassing the world’s hottest countries, cities and regions, and have included the Scenic Rim as number eight in the top regions to visit in 2022.

Mayor Greg Christensen said he’s proud to share this award with everyone who has ever called the Scenic Rim home, whether it’s been for a weekend or a lifetime.

“We’ve been recognised for reasons that matter most — our unique experiences, spectacular landscapes, award-winning produce, commitment to low-impact and sustainable travel, and authentic customer service.”

“While the official title is Best in Travel, this award isn’t only for our tourism industry. Lonely Planet also highlighted the authenticity and warmth of our local community in welcoming visitors with open arms as a defining characteristic of our region.

Let’s make Canungra the number 1 small town in Queensland.

Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen said that with our spectacular scenery, delicious produce, world-class events and passionate locals, it’s no surprise that several Scenic Rim towns are in the race.

“These awards are about recognising towns that offer an amazing visitor experience, where industry and community work together to make their town the best destination, and that’s where the Scenic Rim shines,” he said.

“From the sweeping views at Tamborine Mountain, to the rolling hills of Canungra and the classic country charm of Boonah, the Top Town awards is the perfect opportunity to showcase why the Scenic Rim is the ‘richest place on Earth’.

“I encourage all locals and visitors to jump on and vote for your favourite Scenic Rim town.  You’ll even go in the running to win a $2,000 Apollo Motorhome travel package to help you explore.

“It’s fantastic to recognise the diverse and outstanding regional destinations across Queensland. I thank QTIC for championing these new awards and can’t wait to see the winners announced next month.”

The Top Tourism Town Awards feature 37 finalists across the state in two categories: Top Towns, population over 5,000, and Small Towns, population below 5,000. Please add your vote:

  • Tamborine Mountain (Top Towns)
  • Canungra (Small Towns)
