If you love a good winery trip, but not the part where someone has to be designated driver to transport you home, The Overflow Estate 1895 has you sorted. This secluded winery in the Scenic Rim is currently in the process of adding several luxe, eco-friendly cabins to their stunning surroundings, so from December this year when they officially land, you’ll be able to drop in for a lengthy wine tasting and not have to worry about getting home afterwards.
Home to a picturesque waterfront vineyard and sweeping views of the Wyaralong Dam, The Overflow Estate 1895 feels out of this world despite being only an hour and a half from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. As soon, it will be even more worth the drive, with the winery set to be home to five spectacular WanderPods that take full advantage of these views in a mix of one and two bedroom cabins designed by Wander. We’re talking floor-to-ceiling windows, cozy furnishings and luxurious beds, perfect for sleeping off all the wine you’ll undoubtedly consume at the cellar door and cafe on the grounds.
Whilst the Wanderpods are entirely off grid, they have everything you need and more for a cheeky weekend getaway (including plenty of Insta worthy opportunities). The pods come complete with all the kitchen essentials, a private bathroom and lets not forget the obligatory AND complimentary bottle of wine from The Overflow. You can even pre-order a Scenic Rim Farm Box filled with locally produced goodies to whip up dinner with during your stay.
Still not convinced? Rest assured, this retreat is entirely eco-friendly and designed to minimise your carbon footprint. Just think—you'll be sipping wine by the lake for the environment. Inhale the piney earthiness, watch the fluffy white clouds float by and gaze at the boundless nature views of the Scenic Rim countryside (Yugambeh Country).
Whether you’re chasing an opportunity to unplug and unwind or just after a new area to explore, this green getaway is perfect. With the grand opening of the WanderPods the talk of the town, bookings for December 2021 onward are filling up, so get in quick to wander over to The Overflow Estate 1895 over summer.
