Spicers Hidden Vale, the luxurious country retreat at Grandchester, just 30 minutes' drive from Ipswich, has so much to offer it's easier to list what you can't do. Perched on top a ridge with sweeping mountain views, it's a popular holiday getaway as well as hosting conferences and weddings.
An original historic homestead houses the award-winning Homage Restaurant, and accommodation over-looking the 12,000-acre working farm consists of heritage cottages with one to four bedrooms, with everything you could need for luxurious air-conditioned comfort. Sit on your verandah and watch kangaroos hop by or laze by the pool with heated spa. It's heaven!
There's no end of activities, such as mountain bike riding, bush-walking, tennis, swimming, bocce, croquet, the animal farm, and you can even take an early morning hot air balloon ride, returning to Spicers Hidden Vale for breakfast.
Packages include Hidden Vale Gourmet Getaway, Romantic Getaway and Spa Getaway, where you'll be pampered at the on-site Spa Anise - a popular service for girls' weekends away. And if you're at Spicers on a Sunday, you'll enjoy the sell-out jazz afternoons.

The drive to Spicers Hidden Vale was surprisingly easy and short, given how isolated and tranquil the retreat felt during our recent stay there. It took us less than two hours to get there, which... more »
So relaxing, delightful staff, slightly overpriced
The staff absolutely MADE this trip for us. Delightful, professional, and friendly without being intrusive or overbearing. Staying here is like 'heading off to the farm', if we were all lucky enough... more »

The rooms are pretty small for what you have to pay and that was for a cabin which had 3 individual rooms. We paid $345 per night and weren't very impressed. We also made enquiries about having a... more »
A Special Place for any Special Event
