Love a fine bottle of wine? Then make The Big Day Out Tour your next Moreton Bay Region adventure.
Hosted by the folks from Mountain Wine Tours, this enjoyable day out includes a hearty lunch and is jam-packed with wine tasting and cheese appreciation. Not only will you enjoy diverse edible delights paired with exclusive wines, but the stunning scenery of Moreton Bay Region’s hinterland and the Somerset Valley will leave you thirsting for more winery tour experiences.
The Moreton Bay Region Hinterland and Somerset Valley are renowned for their relaxed country atmosphere. With the mountain ranges providing a breathtaking backdrop, the regions are postcard perfect, full of glorious rolling valleys, high peaks and open plains. Much of the picturesque scenery can be enjoyed from inside the tour vehicle as you travel the winding country roads which connect the region like a patchwork quilt.
The D’Aguilar Range is made up of numerous mountains: Camp Mountain, Mount Nebo, Mount Pleasant, Mount Glorious, Mount Samson and Mount Mee. The range extends from Samford to the Sunshine Coast hinterland township of Mooloolah.
From the eastern side of the range you can bask in views of Moreton Bay all the way out to Moreton Island on a clear day, while the western side offers views over Somerset and Wivenhoe Dams, the primary water reservoirs which supply Brisbane with H20.
The D’Aguilar National Park section consisting of Mount Glorious and Mount Mee offer several bushwalking tracks with great views and lookouts giving you the perfect excuse to visit again for a spontaneous hinterland day trip.
A handful of local wineries call the mountain range home – this tour is all about exploring these hidden South-East Queensland treasures.
