Welcome to

Sip and swirl your way through the Southern Downs and Granite Belt

From grapevine to glass, paddock to plate, and farm to fork, the Southern Downs is a mecca for lovers of fresh, seasonal, regional produce. It is also home to the Granite Belt – Queensland’s only cold climate wine region where multi-award winning hand-crafted wines continue to break new ground both nationally and internationally.

Swirl, sniff, and sip your way through some of Australia’s highest vineyards at some 1,000 metres above sea level and savour incredible local flavours from producers across the Southern Downs region.

Our country drives will take you past sunflower fields, rich farmlands, fruit orchards and vineyards that are an integral part of the flourishing Southern Downs foodie scene.
