Self-Guided Tour of the Scenic Rim Cellars Doors

There are six wineries in the Scenic Rim with a cellar door. In the north, there are Ironbark Ridge Vineyard at Purga outside Ipswich and Paradine Estate Wines at Harrisville. In the south there are Bunjurgen Estate and Kooroomba Vineyard south of Boonah, The Overflow Estate 1895 north east of Boonah and Barney Creek Vineyard Cottages near Rathdowney. Please check the opening hours as most cellar doors are only open on the weekend and public holidays.

It is possible to visit about three to four cellar doors in one day.

Larger groups require more time to use facilities and to get on and off the bus. With lunch and maybe a tea break, time may restrict you to only three cellar doors in a day. You may need to come back for a second visit.

Some of the options for lunch are the Commercial Hotel and Lizzy’s Kitchen at Harrisville, Kooroomba Vineyard at Boonah, the Gourmet café at The Overflow Estate 1895 or a pizza at Paradine Estate at Harrisville or lunch at hotels/cafes in Boonah.

Here are three possible itineraries for a day visit assuming a 10am start at the first cellar door of your choice.

1. Visit the two wineries in the north with lunch at the Commercial Hotel or Lizzy’s Kitchen at Harrisville.

2. Visit two or more wineries in the south with lunch at Kooroomba Vineyard at Boonah or The Overflow Estate 1895. You could turn this into a two day trip by spending the night and having dinner at Barney Creek Vineyard near Rathdowney.

3. Visit one or two wineries in the north with lunch at the Commercial Hotel or Lizzy’s Kitchen at Harrisville or Kooroomba Vineyard near Boonah and visit 1 or 2 wineries in the south. Alternatively, you could do this tour starting in the south.

You may want to take and modify these tours for your purposes.

If any of the group is looking for overnight accommodation with dinner and local wines, Barney Creek Vineyard at Barney View would be ideal.
