Soak Up Summer on the Southern Downs and Granite Belt

An easy two hour escape from Brisbane, the Southern Downs and Granite Belt is just the place to soak up summer. Swap the surf and sand for canoes and creeks and escape the humidity of the Queensland coastal region in our backyard this season.

Welcome to our backyard


We might be the coldest place in the State, but come December 1 we’re just as ready as the rest of Queensland to head outside, relish the longer days and soak up Summer on the Southern Downs and Granite Belt. We have the perfect mix of breathtaking natural landscapes, immersive wine experiences, fresh local produce and exhilarating events celebrated across four distinct seasons. Our major towns of Warwick and Stanthorpe are both within an easy drive of the region’s unique villages, with laidback locals and warm country hospitality awaiting you. Welcome to our backyard where the only thing you have to do is slow down, breathe deep and experience the essence of country life.
