Tucked away in the beautiful Lockyer Valley is one of south-west Queensland's best kept secrets, Peppers Hidden Vale. The homestead built in the 1920s is testimony to Australia's colonial past.
Accommodation is in elegantly restored cottages, scattered throughout the gardens. Each room has its own private verandah and breathtaking views of the Australian outback.
Enjoy an evening repast at Cotton's Restaurant prepared with fresh regional produce matched to the hand-selected fine wine list.
This 10,000 acre cattle station offers a host of outdoor activities to give guests a taste of real Australia. You can opt for horse riding day trips, bushwalks, cattle mustering, clay target shooting, archery, mountain biking or a four-wheel drive tour.
For the more active guest, there are overnight treks together with a three-hour horse ride to rustic cabins, followed by a campfire dinner under the stars of the clear outback sky.
