Up for a shopping spree in the Scenic Rim? Here are 5 great places to add to your itinerary while staying at Ketchup’s Bank Glamping. Country towns are hidden gems when it comes to unique, eclectic shops. Boonah and its surrounds are no exception!
First up, The Emporium by Empire Revival. Honestly, you could get lost in here looking through all the amazing and interesting things. Homed in the beautiful heritage listed 1900s Wiss Brothers Store in the quaint town of Kalbar, it is a treasure inside and out. There is a mix of old and new with an emphasis on handcrafted and sustainability. Open seven days, this is a must visit!
Just outside of Kalbar you will find Elderflower Farm at the Scenic Rim Farm Shop and Cafe. Housed in a charming rustic shed, you will find so much more than flowers (although their flowers are gorgeous too!). You will also find handmade gifts, unique homewares and other crafty goods. Better yet, you can pick up some local produce and a coffee while you are there 🙂
Another one in Kalbar! A lovely little town, with the loveliest little businesses! In the words of the owners ‘We are a few eager collectors hunting the world to deliver treasures to your door, finding unique items as we travel.’ Great shop full of eclectic treasures!
Okay this one is a tie. You would be forgiven if you acidentally missed these two local gems. They are across the road from each other on Boonah’s High Street and well worth a look! Among The Story Tree Cafe you will find beautiful books, unique kids toys, jewlery, homewares and other treasures. Boonah Blossoms have beautiful plants, hampers, homewares and of course flowers! Both are full of surprises. You will be sure to find something unexpected but perfect.
Last but not least is Duck Junction. I think it is pretty safe to say, this is Boonah’s favourite gift shop and it just keeps getting bigger and better! Homewares, decor, clothes, jewelry, handbags and more, all lovingly displayed by Wendy and Leila in their beautiful shop!
We are so lucky to share this great region with great people and great businesses. We hope you can come and experience everything it has to offer for yourself 🙂
