High Country Homestead (Beaumont)
Enjoy the tranquility of this gracious high country home on the edge of Lamington National Park, 90 minutes' drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The house sits on a high ledge that has been cut into the rainforest. As a result, you can take in the magnificent rainforest views from all bedrooms and look over the valleys of the Scenic Rim from the verandah.
The house features two large living areas, fire place, well-appointed country kitchen, three large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate games room with ping pong table.
Established gardens surround the house and include a beautiful English cottage garden. Ramble along well-marked walking tracks throughout the 70-hectare property. The trails cater to all levels of fitness. You might have a picnic on the peak if you are feeling energetic or, for something more relaxing, cool down in Chinghee Creek, which runs through the property.
Beaumont is one of our two cattle properties. Here, we run 80 to 100 head of quiet steers that graze across three paddocks. We practice low stress cattle handling so the steers are calm and friendly and our impact on the environment is minimal.
Wildlife, especially birds, are plentiful around the house and throughout the property. You will see kangaroos, wallabies, bush turkeys and many different species of birds. You might also catch a glimpse of a dingo, possum or the little fox who visits from time to time.
The Scenic Rim is a known for the arts, cultural festivals and the six National Parks are within close proximity to the accomodation.
