So if you’re considering coming up to Esk for the weekend, here’s some information on places to stay and things to do.

A pretty historic town within easy reach of Brisbane.
Located 110 km north-west of Brisbane and 70 km from Ipswich, Esk is one of those pleasant, green, leafy and historic towns which, although gracious and stylish, appears to be little more than a main street and a few houses. It nestles under Glen Rock and Mt Esk on the Brisbane Valley Highway.
In fact Esk is the gateway to a region full of hidden delights. The town has a number of interesting historic buildings in an area which boasts the remarkable and elegant Bellevue and Caboonba Homesteads.
