Bunjurgen Estate Vineyard

Bunjurgen Estate Vineyard is located 10 kilometres and 10 minutes south of Boonah on a rise in the Teviot Valley on the way to Mount Alford, in the beautiful heart of the Scenic Rim. Their chambourcin and shiraz vines produce legendary rose styles: sensational and highly regarded shiraz verjuice, still and sparkling: and acclaimed white, cherry and tawny ports. Do not fail to ask for a taste of their famous Bunyip Tawny Port – a local icon of the Scenic Rim food and wine scene during Eat Local Week annually. The vineyard’s easy drinking wines and ports, and verjuice too, are available in the outdoor tasting area with picturesque views of the Scenic Rim Mountains. David McMaugh, CEO and Vinemaster of Bunjurgen Estate Vineyard, is a past member of the club (in the 80’s) when he bought his W123 300D in Sindelfingen on 16 August 1977 (the day Elvis died). David still owns the car and will have it on display on the day. I am sure David will be some stories to tell!!

St Bernard’s Hotel

Robert Muir built St Bernards House in 1881 on the site of the present Council Quarry on Kaiser Road, as an accommodation house for its managers and staff. He bought almost 2000 acres of heavy scrubland at the top of the southern end of the mountain intending to grow sugar cane when the land was cleared. Mr. Muir was drowned in the flooded Logan River at Yatala in 1887.

Following owners started a village settlement and moved St Bernards to its present site in 1898. During its history, St Bernards has had many varied roles including Post Office receiving centre, in 1915 it became a licensed property, the 1920’s saw St Bernards as a convalescent Private Hotel and an accommodation House for up to 100 guests. The tariff was three pound fifteen shillings per week.

The main part of the hotel (the lounge and public bar) was built by John Siganto in 2012–2014 and the hotel licence was required then.
