We can provide local information and advice as well as a range of brochures and maps on other Queensland destinations. Chat to our helpful volunteers for directions and what to see and do in the Scenic Rim.
Take a look at the display of art, pottery, textiles, leatherwork, jewellery, woodwork and craft items by Scenic Rim residents. Perhaps find that unique momento or gift to take home.
Before leaving our centre, treat yourself to a Devonshire tea or coffee while sitting on our verandah, as you contemplate what you will do next in the beautiful Scenic Rim.
Beaudesert is located 70km south of Brisbane. The Mount Lindesay highway runs from Brisbane to the NSW border, through Beaudesert. Pictured is the iconic Mount Lindesay viewed from the Yellow Pinch Lookout trail, Mount Barney National Park.
