~local properties ~ local gardens ~ local unique experiences~

"A World Apart" at Mt Barney is the perfect day trip from Brisbane and the Gold Coast - designed to escape the city hustle and experience some genuine country hospitality through a unique "passport-style" tour to four different properties for a food and wine discovery tour.

Mt Barney is within the beautiful Scenic Rim on the Qld/NSW border, and it is only 90 minutes drive away. The operators are unique in working together to host this annual event to help you explore and experience the beautiful Mt Barney valley.

Each location offers a free “taste of Mt Barney” with local and homemade fare.

This will be the tenth year A World Apart will occur. As always, tickets are FREE, and can be collected from any of the participating businesses on the day, online or from local Visitor Information Centers.

The ticket has a local map, full details of the event, and doubles as your prize draw entry. All visitors to A World Apart are in the running to win prizes such as local products and experiences, just for having a great day out!!

A World Apart had been featured on The Great South East, and included in Great Gourmet Weekends of Australia.
