Hazelwood Estate, the luxury country retreat set in Queensland’s Scenic Rim, is rebranding as Beechmont Estate and becoming part of Northern Escape Collection, a curated portfolio of boutique lodges and experiences owned by Morris Group.

Morris Group Executive Chairman Chris Morris said the name change celebrates the estate’s location near the town of Beechmont in the stunning Gold Coast hinterland in line with the collection’s other properties: Orpheus Island Lodge, Daintree Ecolodge and Mt Mulligan Lodge.

Beechmont Estate is located just outside of the small township of Beechmont, near Binna Burra in the Scenic Rim.

Just 90 minutes from Brisbane and 45 minutes from the Gold Coast, the 75-acre property neighbours the World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park.

The estate sleeps 48 guests in five-star luxury accommodation, including a private residence, offering a range of leisure activities including serene day spa packages, bushwalking, and gourmet dining experiences at the chef-hatted The Paddock restaurant.


Northern Escape Collection

Northern Escape Collection is a curated portfolio of boutique sustainable lodges and experiences that celebrate Queensland’s diverse natural beauty in one bespoke journey.

Inspiring authentic experiences and lasting memories, the collection allows guests to discover a secluded island paradise on the Great Barrier Reef (Orpheus Island Lodge), a soul-enriching retreat in the Daintree Rainforest (Daintree Ecolodge), invoke the spirit of adventure in the outback (Mt. Mulligan Lodge), and succumb to country elegance in the Scenic Rim (Beechmont Estate).

The Northern Escape Collection was crafted by Australian family business, Morris Group, with the goal of allowing travellers to experience Northern Australia in its purest form and to contribute to sustainable economies in the region.
