Spicers Hidden Vale

617 Grandchester Mount Mort Road, Grandchester QLD

An Australian homestead from a bygone era with beautifully restored colonial cottages and the warmest of country welcomes. Located just one hour from Brisbane, the retreat offers space to relax, space to listen, and space to embark on an adventure amongst the abundant wildlife. Set on a 12,000 acre working Australian farm, the property combines the style and comfort of a luxury retreat with the warmest of country welcomes.

A wide range of nature based activities give guests the opportunity to explore the countryside on foot, by mountain bike or by luxury 4WD. Make the most of the many onsite experiences including tennis, helicopter flights, mountain biking, ATV tours, market garden tours and history tours. Relax by the infinity pool, enjoy the heated spa or use up some energy in the lap pool. 

Accommodation features a mix of beautifully restored Queenslander style cottages dating back to the 1800s with separate lounge areas, wrap-around verandahs with sweeping country views and open fireplaces.

Set on 12,000 acres just one hour from Brisbane and on some of the most fertile farming soil in the Southern Hemisphere – the award-winning Homage Restaurant, led by Executive Chef Ash Martin and Head Chef Simon Furley, has a real sense of place. With their own market garden, orchard, mango trees and beehives to harvest from, ingredients are either grown onsite or sourced from producers who live just down the road. 
Homage accolades include two Chef Hats from the 2020 Australian Good Food Guide and one Chef Hat from the 2019 Good Food Guide.
Open for breakfast, lunch from 12:00pm, takeaway lunch 11:30am to 2:30pm, dinner at 5:30pm and 7:30pm. Bookings are essential. 

In 2017, the Hidden Vale Wildlife Centre opened in partnership with the University of Queensland. As a passionate conservationist, Jude’s Turner Family Foundation committed $18m to fund conservation & research initiatives for a minimum 30 years. The purpose build facility is managed by renowned Dr Andrew Tribe and houses a range of species, with students and conservationists working on an ever growing range of projects. This tour is $10 per person for staying guests and will take you behind the scenes where you will get up close to animals being bred or cared for before being released. You will gain insights into the conservation efforts on the 12,000 acres of land and how students are learning skills that will take them forward and benefit our country well into the future. You will hear of the philanthropic work being done to care and prolong our natural environment. You will depart with a new appreciation for conservation in south east Queensland.
