The Lost World Valley truly is a land of changing moods and dramatic vistas. Rainbows arc over the mountains as if painted on the scenery! Those that live and work here are treated to this glorious scene every day ... now you too can stay a while and turn your whole attention to this special place.
'Art at Worendo' returns for 2024 ... once again on Mother's Day weekend. What a perfect way to treat your mum - or yourself - to a weekend of peaceful creativity.
A day of art is lovely but sometimes it's important to take a proper break and really observe our gorgeous landscapes - one of the best ways to do this is to actually stop. And breathe. And find your creative flow ... Even if you are a true beginner, or you tell yourself you don't have an artistic bone in your body ... don't worry ... artist and teacher Glynn Kelly is here to guide you to create something lovely ?
Our program of immersion in landscape and art in the heartland of the Lost World valley is a collaborative event between artist and teacher Glynn Kelly and Horizon Guides; staying at the award winning Worendo Cottages. Glynn will guide you in learning the basics of drawing, ink and water colour technique. For beginners, or those wishing to develop their practice: you will be so thrilled with the images you create. All meals are provided - from afternoon tea on arrival to lunch on Sunday. Take some time out to breath in the gloriously wild Scenic Rim!

ABOUT OUR WALKS Our eco-interpreted bushwalks are open to anyone with an urge to get out and experience the magnificent Scenic Rim region – and beyond.
This is a guided group trek and natural history interpretation is an integral part of the guided experience. You are expected to stay with the group. These are NOT fast-paced races to a destination! No drones please.
Our aim is to get out and explore the many facets of our amazing region, note the changes and develop a deeper understanding of the natural richness on our doorstep and, of course, become walking fit with a wonderful group of like-minded bushwalkers.
The nature of the Scenic Rim terrain means that there are few ‘easy’ walks on graded trails. The majority of routes feature uneven ground and ascents and descents, often with rocky sections. The gradients are sometimes very steep. We always allow plenty of time to complete walks so that there is not the necessity to speed through walks or to feel you are not keeping up.
Come - walk and create with Horizon Guides this season!
