About Spicers Hidden Vale

Located just an hour’s drive from Brisbane, this homely lodge offers 29 comfortable rooms, a gourmet restaurant and a very warm welcome.

Spicers Hidden Vale is set on a 12,000 acre working Australian farm located in the scenic Lockyer Valley and accessed via a long driveway off a country road. The restored colonial cottages are scattered amongst the picturesque gardens, each featuring a veranda allowing you to appreciate the sweeping views of this magnificent area.

Of course, this is a perfect place to totally unwind and relax but there are also plenty of activities on offer including archery, mountain biking, helicopter flights, hot air ballooning and four-wheel drive tours. Spicers Hidden Vale also has a tennis court, animal nursery, infinity edge lap pool, hot spa, lagoon pool and Spa Anise Day Spa.

The onsite award-winning restaurant in the main homestead features the very best fresh and seasonal produce from the local region. You can take a pre-dinner tour of the market garden, smoke house, coal pit, wood fire oven and preserving room which showcases the traditional cooking techniques adopted by the chefs.
