Mt Barney Lodge (1093 Logan Road, Mt Barney) is a certified eco tourism retreat located at the base of Mount Barney, a national park 90 kilometres west of Brisbane. The rustic destination has been a popular retreat since it opened in the late 1980's.
The lodge is a family friendly venue offering a variety of accommodation options, from camp sites to Queenslander homesteads. Prices range from $24 per adult and $12 per child for a basic weekend campsite, to $300 per night for a homestead that sleeps four.
The grounds boast access to a swimming creek and grassy, shady fields for playing, while available activities include rock climbing, abseiling and bushwalking tracks. Eco tourists can participate in a range of environmentally friendly and beneficial programs like guided eco walks and visits to the animal farm and permaculture garden.
This peaceful setting also provides a base for less strenuous exploration. Get on the wine trail, enrol in a cooking class, tour the nearby olive grove or take a scenic drive of the area.
Nearby Mount Barney National Park is home to many threatened and vulnerable species of flora and fauna and is part of the World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests of Australia. The mountain is Australia's fourth largest, at 1359 metres.
Mt Barney Lodge combines a rural holiday experience with quality ecotourist experience. Whether you're a family, a couple or a single seeking a weekend escape, you'll find plenty to see and do here.
