Cannot rave about this place enough, we have stayed here 2 times and both times our stay was amazing. It is an ideal place to go and simply relax. The rooms are lovely and the view is breath taking. Rob and Marina are so lovely and always make us feel welcome. Highly recommend you have dinner there also, the food is amazing.

My wife and I spent a relaxing 2 nights here for no particular reason and found ourselves spoilt, pampered and luxuriated by Rob and Marina who did everything they could to make us feel special. I couldn't recommend this place enough...

My family hired out 'The Whole Bunyip' for the weekend and had an amazing stay.
I very unique experience having the place all to ourselves, and our hosts couldn't have been more welcoming. This is such a great alternative to heading to the coast for another weekend.
With views to compete with the best outlooks in the world, we each had our own private rooms and the Great Hall was amazing for a bit of family time.
Would highly recommend eating in when there, best of both worlds with the quality of great restaurant dining in a welcome, relaxed and familiar atmosphere.
Couldn't recommend highly enough, and definitely a hidden gem just over an hour out from Brisbane. Treat yourself and your loved ones!

The Bunyip is a modern style country retreat in the scenic rim. Flanked by mountains and with the most amazing sunset views. We spent the Easter long weekend there with friends.
It's a great way to just unwind, not do anything much. Maybe go to the occasional winery. We bought back a few wines to share over dinner on the terrace. Dinner made personally by the gracious hosts. I don't know how they managed a three course meal each night with four couples staying but they did and they made it look effortless.

Looking forward to returning.

With less than a week to go before the Easter long weekend, we stumbled across Bunyip Scenic Rim Resort online and decided to try our luck for a 2 night stay. Thankfully, Rob replied almost immediately and it just so happened there was one room left which was ours for the taking.

Not usually one for country/outback settings, I wasn't sure what to expect when heading up the long winding dirt road driveway. Once we reached the top however, what ever expectations we had (or didn't have) were blown out of the water. The views from this secluded retreat are nothing short of breath taking.

With a variety of activities on offer - from swimming, to reading, to bush walking, to hot stone massages, to star gazing, to watching dvd's - you'll never find yourself bored. More often than not however, we found ourselves sitting comfortably outside our room, taking in the scenery, enjoying good company, sipping on beverages and secretly wishing we were as lucky as Rob and Marina are to call this place home. The simple fact that they've built this relaxing haven to share with others just goes to show the kind of warm and welcoming people they are.

But now for the important part - The food! We opted to partake in the 3 course meals each night we stayed and we certainly weren't disappointed. First nights delights included:
- Roasted blue cheese stuffed figs wrapped in proscuitto,
- Seared premium eye fillet (cooked to our liking) with poached vegetables and béarnaise sauce,
- Roasted pears in a decadent sweet red wine sauce with vanilla bean ice cream. Amazing!

And the breakfast was just as tasty. Come morning, when you're done enjoying the view from your kingsize bed, and are feeling ready for yet another delicious meal, simply make your way to the Great Room and order. There isn't a menu so just mention what you're craving and Rob and Marina will do their best to provide. Picture freshly made orange juice, fruit platters, greek yoghurt with muesli and berry compote, espresso coffees, smoked salmon, croissants, herbed mushrooms, crispy bacon and fluffy scrambled eggs. Is your mouth watering yet? Yep, that's standard.

A week on, we're still in awe of Bunyip and believe it was the ideal spot for our first weekend away together. We even decided to rain check our plans back in Brisbane so we could stay an extra night, during which we had our very own campfire to keep warm by. A truly special way to end an incredible long weekend. We can't wait to return. Thank you again, Rob and Marina, for everything!

Room Tip: Ask Rob about what spots to visit nearby - 4WD or not - the drive is nearly as enjoyable as the view...
