Located around an hour’s drive from Brisbane, the picturesque Lockyer Valley is the perfect place for a day trip, weekend or family holiday.
From the moment you arrive, you’ll be surrounded by luscious farming land, leaving you in no doubt that this is a very special area. See your favourite vegetables as they grow in the paddock or watch them being harvested right before your eyes. Then visit the local farm gates, roadside stalls or markets, and buy fresh-from-the-field produce straight from the farmer. Lockyer Valley’s produce isn’t the only thing that will tempt your tastebuds – you’ll also find creamy cheeses, boutique chocolate, award-winning smallgoods, country-made preserves and relishes, and so much more.
Enjoy a meal (or two) at one of our quaint cafés or country pubs and you’ll find fresh, local produce on the menu.
The region’s beautiful B&Bs, country pubs and farm stays will allow you the freedom to enjoy the region for the weekend or see what it’s like to work off the land.
If you like getting back to nature you won’t be disappointed either. Extensive areas of forests and woodlands remain on undulating slopes right through to mountainous areas and lower lying wetlands, all of which create a secure and fertile ecosystem brimming with wildlife diversity.
Lockyer Valley is also home to unique specialty stores, fascinating historic sites and great local events.
