Summer afternoons and evenings are the best time of day to experience the beauty of the Scenic Rim. With this in mind, the quaint town of Mt Alford will host the Mt Alford Artisan night market in December. It is the perfect combination nto a morning of hiking, lunch in Boonah then some Christmas shopping for authentic hand-made goodies.
The Mt Alford Artisan markets are held seasonally four times a year
featuring stalls that recycle, reuse, are handmade, organic, local and have low food miles. Stalls include homemade ice cream, artisan bread, jewelry,
plants, books, ceramics, original artworks, vintage clothes, homemade vegetarian food and organic produce.
Organiser Yonna Powell said the artisan market is a celebration of all things local, with a happy mix of artists, makers and growers showcasing what they
do best. Dine from two pop-up cafés at the market and listen to live music all day. The market proudly supports sustainable principles and practices,
so be sure to bring your own bags! It’s a great day out.
While visiting the township of Mt Alford for the markets, we recommend stopping by the Scenic Rim Brewery to taste their craft beer before taking a tour of the beautiful Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm which boasts stunning views of Mt Barney to the south.
Of course Mt Barney Lodge is the perfect place to stay!
