Experience Nature

The Turner Family Foundation believes that a deeper affinity with the natural environment is established, developed and appreciated by experiencing nature first-hand. 
We seek to nurture a love of Australia’s natural wonders through eco tourism ventures including:

Scenic Rim Trail

Embark on a journey of exploration, discovery and adventure. After years in the planning, the Spicers Scenic Rim five-day walk is now open. The trail is a landmark eco tourism experience for Queensland, located just 1.5 hours from Brisbane. 

This luxury guided walking experience ventures through World Heritage Listed National Park, Gondwana Rainforest and the Turner Family nature refuges. Guests journey to discover a place of untouched beauty, with unique and exclusive accommodation, spectacular views, soothing rainforests and rich cultural and natural heritage. 

The trail traverses Main Range National Park, part of the unique Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area and includes two new eco-camps.

Hidden Vale Adventure Park

Hidden Vale Adventure Park (HVAP) is a unique outdoor experience with a multi-use 110-plus kilometre trail network for mountain bike riders, runners and walkers, winding through the expansive Hidden Vale property.

Operating out of the luxurious getaway, Spicers Hidden Vale, it’s the perfect way to explore the great outdoors.

Users sign in and out at the HVAP Trail-head, collect a map, and then enjoy a world-class trail network with great bush scenery, kangaroos for company, and even passing by an abandoned light plane. On return you have access to Spicers’ top-quality food and beverage options.

The Adventure Park also hosts mountain biking and trail run events through Epic Events Management. You can participate in timed rides and races and even set up camp during the events, making it perfect for a family-friendly getaway.
