A World Apart 2015

... discover the hidden tastes of Mt Barney...

23 and 24 May 2015

4 properties – 4 gardens – 4 unique experiences

Mt Barney is within the beautiful Scenic Rim right on Brisbane’s doorstep to the south, and is the setting for the “A World Apart” food and wine discovery tour.

Here four tourism operators have revived the 'old wooden signposts' for one weekend only to entice and guide you along.

The operators are unique in working together for this annual event to help you explore the beautiful Mt Barney Valley. 

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

    This will be the eighth 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 over $500 of 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.
