Road Trip Map

Daisy's Place is nestled in the edge of a rainforest so you can enjoy breakfast or a snack before commencing your road trip.

When you leave, follow Steve Irwin Way to Beerwah and take Route 6 west-bound towards Kilcoy. Veer right onto Route 85 onto D'Aguilar Highway. Kilcoy is a town with much history and continues to thrive as a meat processing town supplying employment to many locals.

If it's time for break. Stop at Chantilly Blue Coffee Lounge, 25 Seib Street for great service and lovely coffee and gifts.

Stay on the D'Aguilar Highway until Route 85 becomes the Brisbane Valley Highway (which is a turn left) towards Esk. Wivenhoe Dam will be on your left as you continue onto Route 17.

Turn right onto Coominya Connection Road which becomes Forest Hill-Fernvale Road at Mount Tarampa.

You will cross the Warrego Highway (A2) and veer left onto Old Laidley-Forest Hill Road towards Laidley.

Turn right onto Laidley-Plainlands Road, onto Patrick Street, Vaux Street and left onto Rosewood-Laidley Road towards Grandchester.

In Gradchester, turn right onto Granchester-Mount Mort Road, signposted to Spicers Hidden Vale. You are nearly there! It may feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but your reward awaits not far from here.

A few kilometres up the road and you have reached your destination.

Have lunch, dinner or stay overnight at Spicers Hidden Vale for a true country farm stay experience while enjoying the luxury Spicers are famous for.

I'd recommend you order a picnic and explore the grounds of the property. Take a horse ride with damper included, or let the kids pat the animals at the farm gate.
