The end of the year brings with it sunshine, longer days and much needed time off. Before you rush to book tickets to go away, explore your very own backyard and unearth these hidden treasures, right here in the Moreton Bay Region.

Mount Mee Country Inn Moreton Bay Region Front Entrance

Mt Mee Country Inn

Amidst the D’Aguilar Ranges surrounded by luscious greenery, Mount Mee Country Inn is a quaint venue where time seems content to linger. With a range of gorgeously adorned rooms, landscaped gardens, an English Pub and a tea room, it’s easy to be swept up in the charm and allure of the country inn. Whether you have a long weekend away or drop in for their monthly open dinners, add this to your list of summer hot spots.

Northbrook Gorge

Summer is the perfect time to swim, wade and through this little-known and well-hidden hiking track. Northbrook Gorge in Dundas, part of the D'Aguilar National Park is a must for anyone who loves river bed walking, as well as ankle-deep and waist-high wading. There are several rock pools along the journey with the longest measuring about 15 to 20 metres. The large, almost crystal clear, rock swimming pool, complete with a short waterfall, found in the second gorge, is breathtaking! As this is truly a hidden treasure, make sure you do your research to find out exactly how to get there.

Bribie Island Arts Centre

Off the beaten track behind Banksia Beach, Bribie Island Community Arts Centre is a quaint hub of creativity, nestled in gorgeous bushland. It’s one of Australia’s largest and busiest arts centres, boasting regular creative workshops, studio exhibitions and a gift gallery filled to the brim with handcraft items and works of art. There is also a wonderful market on the last Sunday of every month, showcasing quirky wares and whimsical treasures.
