Successfully launched in November 2021, Tawny Trails is The Creative Living Experience, a spellbinding journey that combines the beauty of nature and the magic of creativity, into an art and lifestyle trail.

Immerse yourself in the Tawny Trails scenery, marvel at the textures of modelling clay, listen to the chirping of the birds in distant trees, delight in the tastes of local wine, inhale fresh, clean air, view award-winning artworks, enjoy the tranquillity of yoga, contemplate the mysteries of life, sleepover at a luxurious mountain getaway - the choices are limitless and the choices are yours!

Embark on a totally unique self-drive, a crafted journey that will take you through the beating heart of the creative genius of Moreton Bay Hinterland and beyond, experiencing life as seen through the eyes of artists.

Open on the last Sunday of every month, Tawny Trails extends an invitation to leisure and adventure seekers to be captivated by the lush green rolling hills of Mount Mee and to be spellbound by the verdant-green vineyards of Ocean View Estates, knowing that the exciting cultural journey continues onwards to the character-filled, creative and historical towns of Dayboro and Samford.

This is The Creative Living Experience! A journey where adventurers will meet award-winning artists who have had creativity running through their veins since the day of their birth, as well as those creatives with academic, holistic and opportunistic backgrounds. The power of being creative and appreciating creativity may be an unrevealed talent in many of us and the Tawny Trails may well be our own personal journey of discovery.
