Great hiking - great food - great wine - and lovely people. What more can you ask for. And, it is just 3 hours from Brisbane, where we live. Moreover, it is a refreshing change from the humid heat of the city, to the cooler, drier temperatures of the countryside. The quality of the wineries and the excellent hiking opportunities... More

Had an enjoyable couple of days in Stanthorpe, superb accommodation at the 'Loggers Rest' plus the highlight was the 'Peter Gray Wine Discovery Tour.' Personalised service, quality information, good wineries a pleasant way to tour the Granite Belt. We would highly recommend the Loggers Rest for accommodation and the Peter Gray Wine Discovery Tour.

Amazing rock formations and divine wineries, the scenic park along the Quart Pot Creek is perfect for picnics and families. This place really opened our eyes to the force of the Earth.

This area is known for its Granite boulders but the number of places to visit far exapands the mind and soul. There is Girraween national park as well as all the wineries and the many orchards. You can pick strawberries in season and there are numerous roadside fruit stalls scattered throughout the region. Come and enjoy the peace and tranquillity.

This is a delightful place to get away for a few days, especially in the fruit harvesting season. There are many wineries, orchards, boutique cheeseries and craft studios, set in a wonderland of boulder country. Easily accessed are 5 national parks with spectacular scenery - Girraween and Sundown on the Queensland side and over the border, Bald Rock, Boonoo Boonoo... More

This region is really worth a visit. Lots of boutique wineries, restaurants and accommodation choices. The scenery is wonderful. Girraween National Park has lots of short and longer hikes amid the boulders, streams and forests. Lots to see and do.

We were blown away by the choice of accomodation and quality of the food and wine in this region. We went on a Filippo's wine tour and had a fantastic day. The bus driver Greg was a real asset to the company. The mix of people on the tour made for a very happy and memorable occasion. I could do... More

Spent lots of days just walking and climbing through the National Parks in the area. They are all very well laid with lots of signs, pathways and picnic areas.

Cool air and mountain freshness add up to one great place to visit. So many wineries to choose from for a tasting or a meal and a huge variety of accommodation choices. The beautiful Quart Pot Creek that flows through the town is lovely for a walk or to have a picnic. Local fruit and vegetables to take home as... More
