THE EAGLES NEST SCENIC RIM – “The ultimate Hinterland Guest House”

Nestled on the foothills of the world-renown and heritage listed Lamington National Park, QLD, is “The Eagles Nest”, a 50-acre luxurious hinterland guest house, situated on a ridgeline, with 360 degrees of the Scenic Rim.

Our names are Kelly & Jules, we own and lived at “The Eagles Nest” for close to 3.5 years, with our 3 beautiful boys, and our beloved fur babies.

In July 2023, we decided to part ways, and now live in another spectacular location in the Scenic Rim, QLD – We are still lucky enough to call “The Eagles Nest” our home away from home.

We spent our time there marvelling over the vistas, the breathtaking sunrises & sunsets, and gazing at the crystal-clear, country night skies. Some mornings we would wake in a blanket of fog, and slowly watch it ascent from the valley below, whilst other days you’d be delighted with the Eagles soaring at eye level, without a noise or neighbour in sight. The memories we made as a family at “The Eagles Nest” are truly unforgettable, and something we are SO excited to share.

During our time, we renovated, built the HEATED infinity pool & turned the house into something justly special, with so much to offer.

Whether you’re immersing yourself in the breathtaking western sunset by the infinity pool, relaxing by the bespoke gas fireplace, hiking the rolling hills of the property, spending quality time around the campfire or spending your days exploring the Scenic Rim, this will be a stay you’ll never forget.


Sleeping 10, “The Eagles Nest” is the perfect retreat for families, couples or groups seeking solitude and tranquillity, only 80 minutes from Brisbane CBD, 45 minutes from the Gold Coast and 12 minutes from Canungra, QLD.

This stunning, 50-acre property in the heart of popular tourist attraction of the Scenic Rim, QLD, bordered to the west of the Sarabah Range, east of the Darlington Range and divided by the breathtaking Sarabah Valley.

Looking north is the picturesque, country-township of Canungra, situated in the Gold Coast hinterland, and southwest you’ll find the world renown and heritage-listed Lamington National Park.

The accommodation sleeps 10.

Event hire available.
