Description

Ballandean is renowned for its picturesque setting and the Granite Belt's largest number of award winning winemakers.

It is in this area, just to the south of Stanthorpe, where Queensland's first commercially grown table grapes were harvested. Grapes have been grown in the Granite Belt since the 1870s, thanks predominantly to the arrival of Italian settlers. The first legally planted wine grapes were allegedly grown by the Puglisi family of Ballandean. The family vineyard, Ballandean Estate, is the venue for "Opera in the Vineyard", each May.

Don't miss Ballandean's little bit of Egypt - make sure you drive past the famous hand-made pyramid. The amazing Girraween National Park and rugged Sundown National Park are also only a short drive away.
