The Stanthorpe Region

Only two and half hours drive from Brisbane, Stanthorpe is in the centre of the Granite Belt wine growing district. More then a dozen vineyards within easy reach, most only a few minutes drive away. Girraween and Bald Rock are two beautiful and unique National Parks close by and easily accessible.

Each season is unique and special. In summer, when local stone fruit is available right off the trees, the warm pleasant days make way for cool crisp evening. Autumn brings the grape harvest and then an explosion of reds, yellows and oranges as the landscape prepares for winter.

Our winter is famous for its misty mornings, crystal clear days, vivid sunsets and cosy nights beside the fire, sipping local wine. Australian native wildflowers bloom in spring, not just in the nearby National Parks, but all along the roadside, enticing you to stop and pick a few.
