There are no restaurants or cafes at Mt Barney Lodge, so this gives you the perfect excuse to venture out and explore the Scenic Rim (and NSW!).
You will find quaint country pubs that serve traditional pub fare, vineyards with cheese platters, boutique brewerys whose food is as good as the beer, and small cafes that specialize in local fresh produce and the best coffee!
Always make sure you call ahead to check opening hours.

A bookshop, a gift/craftware shop, a borrowed lounge room. If you love mis-matched china crokery and silver teaspoons accompanying amazing homemade food this cafe is really "where the locals go". p.s. the best real chai in Boonah!

Beaudesert (45mins drive from Mt Barney Lodge)
Experience the quirky atmosphere in this cute little cafe and find your golilocks armchair that is "just right". Many of the cabinet items are homemade. One of the few places to find freshly squeezed juices in Beaudesert. Organic coffee is a plus.

Better than average pub food. A cool air-conditioned summer lunchtime retreat.
THE FALLS (75min drive from Mt Barney Lodge)
Great views of Wilsons Peak, and a good halfway stopover to Queen Mary Falls.
Here's hoping the prawn curry is always on the menu. The burgers are bigger than you can imagine, and every bite is mouth-watering!
