If you’re staying on in the area or are looking for a return trip after Snowflakes we’ve got you covered!

Hit up our the insanely beautiful Girraween National Park for some of the best hikes that Queensland has to offer. (Click here for a free downloadable National Parks Map.) After all that exercise stop for an affordable lunch at our Stanthorpe RSL.

Take in some culture at our renowned Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery that offers changing exhibitions every six weeks along with artist talks, workshops and even yoga!

Did you know that the cool Granite Belt climate allows for the slow ripening of grapes which results in the development of superior flavours? This is why we have some of the best wineries in the country and no stop to the area would be complete without a wine tasting. Head north to the celebrated Ballandean Estate Winery where you can even adopt a vine! Another gem is the family run Casley Mount Hutton Winery in Greenlands. Cruise on over to Thulimbah on your last stop at the stunning Summit Estate Winery.

As you come back into town don’t forget to pick some fresh lavender at Aloomba Lavender and while you’re visiting inquire about some of their great accommodation pages including bush camping. If you need self contained units then visit our friends at Maric Park Cottages for a tranquil getaway.

Lastly, pick up a warm coffee at McDonalds Stanthorpe on your way out of town, but we can guarantee you it won’t be long until your next visit!
