Glencoe Cottage is situated in a spectacular position in the midst of farmland in the picturesque Lockyer Valley. Centrally located 1 hour west of Brisbane and less than 1½ hours from the Gold Coast, Glencoe Cottage is also only 1 km south of the small village of Forest Hill and close to Laidley and Gatton townships. You can discover the delights of this rich agricultural area by taking a farm drive; visiting local markets or farm gate stalls to buy the freshest and best of Queensland produce. At the end of the day, sit in the shade on the deck of the Cottage and enjoy the afternoon in the cool.

There is much to do in this area and you may just want to stay for a week or more to explore this very historical area or base yourself here whilst exploring nearby parts of South East Queensland. If you enjoy birdwatching, bring your binoculars and camera and see if you can spot the birds other visitors have already found or see if you can spot something that no one has yet found.

If you are feeling adventurous, bring a rod, your canoe or push bikes and explore the surrounding farmland including the large irrigation dam, or take a leisurely walk to enjoy spectacular sunrise or sunsets over the water. Canoes can be hired locally. Horse riding is also able to be accessed in the local area.

The Queensland region

Glencoe Cottage is situated in the Lockyer Valley which is located west of Brisbane in the state of Queensland. Queensland is known by it's slogan "Beautiful One Day; Perfect the Next".

The Lockyer Valley is known for it's vegetable production, being the Salad Bowl of Australia. The Valley also holds some well known and attended events such as the Lockyer Powerfest (held at Lake Dyer, near Laidley), The Laidley Spring Festival in September and the Heavy Horse Field Days in May at Gatton.

There are many activities that can keep you interested in the Lockyer Valley and surrounds. Visit Lake Dyer, Schultz's Lookout, the Mulgowie Farmer's Market, Laidley Market Days, as well as stopping at any of the many boutique coffee shops and cafes in the Valley. You may be interested in bird watching, cycling, bushwalking, ballooning, sky diving, equestrian - the Lockyer has it all.

Glencoe Cottage is located very centrally in the Lockyer Valley as well as being close to all larger centres such as Brisbane, Ipswich, Toowoomba and the North and South Coasts and the Somerset and Scenie Rim for a day's drive.

City of Brisbane

The immediate area is known as Glen Cairn. This was part of the original Cob & Co route with Glen Cairn Road being renamed after it was known as Old Toowoomba Road. Take a drive or a walk around the area, or read the history - there is much early history still to be found; from the old bridge on Sandy Creek to the billabongs where the horses were watered after a day's travel.

The small nearby township of Forest Hill has some special eating places. There is no queuing at the Post Office where you can browse their beautiful gift selections or enjoy a meal here at Café 4342.

A short drive away is the town of Laidley with a Pioneer Village and lots of interesting buildings to admire in the main street. Enjoy a coffee at the local cafes in Laidley and go for a drive through the farming area of Mulgowie - stopping at the Mulgowie Hotel for a taste of some local cheeses and ice cream.

There are many special drives you can do in the Lockyer (see the Lockyer booklet in the house) or talk to Patti about some special farm drives where you can stop and purchase fresh farm produce.
