Brisbane experiences

Pine Rivers

Right on Brisbane's doorstep is Pine Rivers' scenic hinterland where you can exhale the stress of a busy working week.

From the lofty heights of Mt Glorious, Mt Nebo and Mt Mee to the tranquil edge of Lake Samsonvale, it's a quick getaway to a world of natural beauty, outdoor adventure, food and wine and pure indulgence.

25 minutes north west from downtown Brisbane. Follow Kelvin Grove Road out to Samford Road, or alternatively Musgrave Road and Waterworks Road.

From north of Brisbane, take Mt Mee Road via Woodford. From the north of Brisbane, take Albany Creek Road, or the Strathpine or Kallangur exits from the Bruce Highway. If you're arriving from the west, take Mt Glorious Road from the Wivenhoe outlook.
