Scenic Mount Cotton is a semi-rural area south of Brisbane, known for its pretty country drives, invigorating bush walks, and award-winning winery.
Mount Cotton is in the middle of a koala conservation area and the surrounding local councils have set aside large tracts of land to protect the koala’s natural habitat. On a walk through Venman Bushland National Park you just might be lucky enough to see one of these cuddly marsupials.
The Sirromet winery at Mount Cotton is considered one of the best in the country. Regular events are held in the spacious grounds, featuring big name acts from around the country and overseas.
Wines produced on site have won major awards in France, the US and the UK. Find out what the fuss is all about by treating your taste buds to a sample at the cellar door. The winery’s gold star restaurant enjoys impressive views over the surrounding countryside and is consistently rated as among the best in Australia.
