Leave the bustle of the city behind as you set off on this scenic route taking you from Brisbane to Ipswich and across the Great Dividing Range to Warwick before heading to .......
The drive encompasses the state's oldest provincial city, one of its most picturesque areas and a World Heritage-listed rainforest reserve. Mountainous views, ancient trees, wildlife, waterfalls and fresh creeks are the order of this road trip. Be sure to bring a camera and a spare memory stick to capture the countless points of interest and intrigue along the way.
From Brisbane, follow the Ipswich Motorway to Ipswich. Ipswich is the State's oldest provincial city and is renowned for its architectural, cultural and natural heritage. Meander through the city and marvel at the magnificent and imaginatively designed old houses.
After a fascinating tour around Ipswich's stately homes and gardens, clear your head with a relaxing and picturesque drive through the Scenic Rim to Boonah. Local history buffs should keep a look out for the Templin Historical Museum on the Boonah-Fassifern Road (between Boonah and the Cunningham Highway). The museum contains a collection of artefacts and memorabilia chronicling the history of the local area.
Hop onto the Cunningham Highway at Aratula and prepare yourself for the steep incline of Cunningham's Gap. You can stop at the top to take in the awe-inspiring views, looking back towards Brisbane and Moreton Bay.
Arrive in Warwick, a city boasting some of Queensland's finest historical sandstone buildings that stand today as reminders of the region's pioneering past. The Post Office (built in 1891) and the Town Hall (1888), are two fine examples.
