Things to do and places to see around Canungra

When you come and stay at Magpie Creek Thoroughbred Farmstay – here are some suggestions of what do to in and around town.

Visit the award winning Albert River Winery – just 4k/m up the road from Magpie Creek Farmstay

Enjoy the charm and character of the Canungra Village – 10K/m down the road

The Canungra pub make the best pizzas in their wood fired oven and all meals offer value for money and great quality

It’s an easy drive to Cedar Creek Falls – just 15 k/m – the Falls are a lovely place for a BBQ or picnic with the family

Horse riding is available at Thunderbird Park – bookings are essential.

Continue up to Mt Tamborine and visit Witches Falls Lookout you’ll have a great view across the entire valley

Looking for some very unique shopping – try Gallery Walk – 20k/m from our farmstay

Enjoy a lovely drive to Boonah through Beaudesert and spend some time enjoying the beauty of our region

We’re also not too far away from all the Worlds – 45k/m and you will be a Dreamworld, Movie World, Wet’n’Wild or Sea World

For those who love nature – the windy drive to O’Reilly’s and Green Mountain is well worth the trip

One of our favourites is to visit Springbrook National Park and Pearlingbrook falls

and another great experience is the Natural Arch and Natural bridge – make this a late afternoon trip and you will see a fantastic display of glow worms in their natual surrounds, walking through the bush at night after some rain is like going into fairy land.

The Scenic Rim and surrounds offers so much natural beauty and is also close enough the the wonders of the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
