Pavement Whispers: the Scenic Rim will soon welcome Blume, a destination restaurant from one of Brisbane’s best and brightest

The Scenic Rim is a region of abundance – a wonderland of breathtaking vistas, fertile farmlands and warm and welcoming hospitality. While the area's plethora of natural landmarks, sleepy towns, bountiful farmlands, restaurants and cafes, and hidden gems make it nearly impossible to take in the Scenic Rim's true majesty in a single weekend, we're always eager for more excuses to book another trip.
