617 Mount Mort Road‚ Grandchester

Spicers Hidden Vale is a hidden gem, an escape just 30 minutes’ drive from Ipswich and one hour from the Brisbane CBD that combines the style and comfort of a luxury retreat with the warmest of country welcomes.

It is here that you will experience the bush at its best, understated excellence in the Australian bush. Experience the revitalising effect of spending time on 12,000 acres of true Australian Bush.

The retreat is home to the award-winning Homage restaurant, which is a chef-hatted dining experience celebrating local produce. With market gardens, an orchard, mango trees and beehives to harvest from, ingredients are either grown onsite or sourced from producers who live just down the road. As a result, Homage’s menus are spontaneous and ever changing.

The accommodation features heritage cottages with one to four bedrooms, that have everything you could need for luxurious air-conditioned comfort. Sit on your veranda and watch kangaroos hop by or laze by the pool with heated spa. It’s heaven!

There’s plenty of activities, such as mountain bike riding, bush-walking, swimming, croquet and an animal farm. Guests can also visit the on-site wildlife centre and take part in a koala safari. The retreat is home to the Hidden Vale Adventure Park which is 110 plus kilomoetres of world class mountain biking trails.

An utter waste of time, and money.

My partner and I stayed at the hotel. Whilst the room was adequate (at best), my low rating spurs from the poor treatment of staff that I witnessed whilst dining at the Homage restaurant. My partner... more »
