Spicers Peak Lodge - At a Glance

Located on 8000 acres at the peak of the ridge, with breathtaking views of the World Heritage listed Main Range National Park and Scenic Rim, Spicers Peak Lodge is Queensland’s highest mountain lodge retreat.

This architecturally stunning lodge is an eclectic mix of contemporary and classic design. 
With ten luxurious suites and two Private Lodges, Spicers Peak Lodge serves as an intimate and relaxing accommodation experience in one of South East Queensland's most beautiful wilderness areas.



An all inclusive rate, including its celebrated degustation dinner menu, is available at Spicers Peak Lodge where guests enjoy privacy, intimacy and very high levels of service. Lodge facilities include an infinity edge swimming pool, library with billiard table, massage room and an extensive lounge and dining area.

There is a range of experiences designed to give guests access to this strikingly beautiful part of the Australian wilderness including rainforest bushwalks, mountain biking adventures, and wine tasting at the nearby Granite Belt wine region. There are also guided four day treks ending  in a night of luxury at the lodge. 


Explore the diversity of unique Australian flora and fauna and traverse the foothills and valleys to get up close and personal with some of the region’s very special wildlife, including the rare glossy black cockatoos, bushy tail rock wallabies and the native koala.

Offering a unique blend of luxury accommodation and fine dining, Spicers Peak Lodge is an intimate destination for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

“The long two-storey lodge appears from the mist like a developing photograph. Blurred lines harden to a silhouette, then there it is, an improbable oasis on top of the world. If there were snowfields in Queensland, this is where you'd want your alpine chalet to be.” Susan Kurosawa, Weekend Australian
