One of Queensland's best-kept secrets
Kooroomba Lavender Farm could easily be one of Queensland's best-kept secrets. Nestled in the Fassifern Valley at Mt Alford near Boonah, Kooroomba Lavender Farm is only 60 minutes drive from Brisbane and 1.5 hours from the Gold Coast.
This unique tourist destination is absolutely stunning. The farm consists of a cellar door, the Kooroomba Restaurant and the Lavender Gift Shop, which overlooks a six-hectare vineyard of breathtaking lavender fields.
With magnificent views of the Scenic Rim mountains, Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm is really the definition of a 'hidden gem' and is the perfect setting for any festivity or just a relaxing day away.
Take some time to admire the stunning open chapel, the perfect location for any dream wedding. Imagine the backdrop of magnificent mountains, spectacular views surrounded by nature, acres and acres of vineyards, lavender fields, olive groves for your ideal day.
Time to head up to the restaurant and listen to the live music that is on every Sunday in the open courtyard. Choose from a delicious menu that brings the love of the Scenic Rim's fresh produce and rustic and simple aspects of French country-style cooking right to your table.
Make sure to check out the gift shop, art gallery and cellar door before you leave too. You will find wonderful gifts, art and wine that have all been handcrafted with the freshest and best local ingredients. Kooroomba Lavender products are all manufactured to exacting quality standards and include products such as honey, honey mustard lavender dressing, tomato apple ginger jam, soaps, candles and self-care products.
Lavender is not just beautiful, it also has many health benefits. It is a natural anti-inflammatory, helps with poor digestion and is a healthy addition to your meal. The scent of lavender can even lower your heart rate and blood pressure, making it the perfect addition to your self-care toolkit.
