Description

The lively adventure town of Esk - a leisurely 80 minutes' drive from downtown Brisbane - is a must for anyone who loves to get outdoors and get active. With its stunning location in the middle of the Valley of the Lakes, it's no wonder that all kinds of watersports are popular here. Skiing, sailing and white water kayaking are all well catered for, as are fishing, canoeing and swimming.

But it's not just the water that people are diving into in Esk. Adventure is everywhere, from abseiling, mountain bike riding or tandem sky diving 12,500 feet above the valley. Or, for something just a little more sedate, climb aboard a camel safari and plod your way through the bush. You can even stay overnight at a stockman's camp and really get back to nature.

For something completely different, make sure you visit the ostrich and deer farms, and get a close up view of these magnificent creatures. And if you just can't leave the need to shop behind, there are numerous craft and antique shops and galleries dotted around the region.

And as you would expect of a region where there is so much going on, there are plenty of motels, hotels, camping areas, caravan parks and farm stays to rest at after a big day out.
