Welcome to Beaudesert

Our accredited Visitor Information Centre, staffed by local volunteers, can provide information and travel advice about the Scenic Rim area. We have maps, brochures and itineraries to assist with your stay in the beautiful Scenic Rim.

The Centre is also the home of the Lyrebird Gallery, showcasing paintings, pottery, textiles, woodwork, glass, jewellery and leatherwork by talented Scenic Rim artists.

There is also a wide range of local produce such as sweets, jams, chutneys, pickles, olive oil and condiments for sale.

The Centre has a large, well equipped meeting room used by community groups.

Dick Westerman Park, adjacent to the Beaudesert Information Centre, has picnic tables, a small playground and public toilets.

Caravans can park along Enterprise Drive. Please note - there is no Dump Point in the park. The nearest Dump Point is at the local Beaudesert Caravan Park and they apply a small charge.

Come in and say hello, browse our gallery and perhaps stay for a Devonshire tea or coffee.
