Description

Only a short drive away from Brisbane and the coast, and you're in Southern Queensland Country. Welcome to four clearly defined seasons, clean air, a burgeoning wine industry, galleries and museums, and the freshest and tastiest produce. It's all waiting for you to explore.

Comprised of four regions, Southern Queensland Country is a refreshing change of pace from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you like wine, the South Burnett and Granite Belt regions offer a variety of vineyards and cellar doors. The region offers wild expanses of national parks and the cheery hubbub of country markets, heritage-rich history, folk music festivals, fine dining and freshwater fishing. This is a part of Queensland where a visit should not be hurried.

The laid-back country roads and designated scenic routes make travelling in this part of the state a real pleasure. There are plenty of bed and breakfast options sprinkled among the more than 50 cellar doors and a choice of cafes and delis to make your meals memorable.

Take time to enjoy the simple pleasures: home-cooked breakfasts at quaint cottages, hidden antique shops or simply a cuddle with a loved one by the fire in the cooler winter months.

There are plenty of amazing things to see and do around Southern Queensland Country. Whether you're in the mood for something relaxing, action-packed or just feel like going for a long nature walk, there's something to suit everyone's tastes.

How To Get There

The Southern Queensland Country region covers a large area in the eastern corner of the state. Stretching from Stanthorpe in the south to Kingaroy in the north, and from Toowoomba as far west as Mitchell, Southern Queensland Country is somewhere to savour crisp clean country air, award-winning wines, the freshest local produce and time with some of the friendliest locals around. And because you can drive there in less than two hours from Brisbane, it's somewhere that's easy to sneak away for a weekend with friends or a short break with the family.
