Here’s something big happening in 2022. The Scenic Rim Adventure Festival – running 29 April-2 May – includes guided expeditions, walks, talks and wild adventures from the base camp of Mt Barney Lodge.
Plus there’s a survival skills workshops, an adventure film festival and internationally renowned guest speakers, sharing their experiences of challenges, inner strength, resilience, and survival.
“The Scenic Rim with its world heritage offerings on the doorstep of Brisbane and the Gold Coast provides an incredible experience,” said Mayor Greg Christensen of Scenic Rim Regional Council. “With the recent recognition of the Scenic Rim in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 destinations in the world to visit in 2022, our great outdoors inspired me to abseil at daybreak this morning to keep true to my new year’s resolution.”
“This is not a festival where you’ll experience hordes of people and the usual trappings of large festivals. This is an immersion experience where we’re inviting people to rediscover and relax in nature and challenge themselves physically if they chose to. It is something our minds and bodies are craving during this tumultuous time,” said Festival Director and owner of Mt Barney Lodge, Mr Innes Larkin.
