Have you ever considered a country holiday rather than going to the beach or the city? Here in the Lockyer Valley there are many things to do to keep you occupied throughout your holiday. Whether you like swimming, horse riding, bike riding, going for picnics, country drives, bush walking, visiting markets, village shopping, eating local produce – there is no end of ideas without even considering just chilling out and reading a book or looking out onto the day and evening sunsets. Autumn and winter are perfect seasons to enjoy our area.

Many families and retirees are discovering the country for themselves and have chosen to stay at Stockton Rise Country Retreat or Glencoe Cottage to base themselves throughout their time here. Some of these families have brought their own push bikes and enjoyed riding around the area, some enjoyed a swim at the nearby Aquatic Centre in Gatton, some chose to horse ride at a nearby trail riding centre; some even brought their own power boats and skied at nearby Lake Dyer.

At the end of the day, they were able to come back, relax and enjoy a toasted marshmallow around the firepit or for the more energetic, a walk around the large irrigation dam to find local wildlife.
