Somerset Dam Accommodations
Somerset Lake is a popular travel destination for many reasons. Staying in a Somerset Dam holiday rental is one of the best ways to enjoy this rural area. Open, airy designs greet visitors and ample windows offer lake views in this home away from home.
Why Somerset Dam?
For a peaceful, relaxing holiday, Somerset Dam is a great locale. Less than 40 km from the Sunshine Coast and 50 km to Brisbane, this area is rural, but still close enough for a day trip. Vineyards cover the rolling hillsides and offer visitors spectacular views. The calm, clear waters of Lake Somerset offer an escape from the warmer weather.
Lake Somerset offers visitors many types of activities ranging from adventurous to relaxing. Take advantage of the picnic areas with barbeque grills. Many travelers fish from the shoreline or from aboard a powered or non-powered boat. Enjoy the water aboard a kayak, canoe, or sailboat for a one-of-a-kind experience. There are plenty of walking trails and model boating is another popular activity.
D’Aguilar National Park
Remote gorges between mountainous peaks covered with rainforest and eucalypt cover the 36,000 hectares known as D’Aguilar National Park. Visitors can drive along three forest drives or three scenic drives to enjoy a larger area of the park. There are walking trails throughout the park with over 14 areas to stop and take in the scenery. Walkabout Creek offers a visitor centre, wildlife centre, and café for a nice break during walking. McAfee’s Lookout features breathtaking views of Moreton Bay and plentiful photo opportunities.
Landcruiser Mountain Park
This park is for the off-road and bush-loving enthusiast. The first privately owned wilderness in Queensland, Landcruiser offers over 200 kilometres of 4WD trails. There are trails for all types of motorist, from beginner to expert.
Somerset Lake is nestled in the middle of Queensland’s wine country. Vineyards abound and offer many different experiences for travelers. Before wine tasting, visitors can spend a day clay target shooting or deer hunting at the Hunting Lodge Resort. If hunting isn’t on the agenda, there are several bushwalking trails to explore too.
Nirvana Estate Vineyard
While this vineyard doesn’t offer as many extracurricular activities, it makes up with the plethora of wines available. There are several types of wine crafted here, ranging from reds, whites, and roses, to blends, fortified wines, special wines, and clean skin wines.
The fine, volcanic soil of this estate produces some of the finest wine-making grapes around. Using Shiraz, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot, Cabernet, and Verdelho vines, this estate crafts fine wine for the tasting.
