Experience Queensland Lifestyle


With an ever increasing stable of award-winning wines available from all regions, the secret is out about Queensland's flourishing wine industry.

Established in the 1860s, wine growing has a long history in Queensland but the success of its wines is only now starting to be realised on the national and international stage.

Charming cellar doors, friendly wine makers, vineyard restaurants, gourmet food, wine trails and cosy accommodation options help visitors make the most of the major wine regions which stretch from the Gold Coast Hinterland, through the Scenic Rim and out to the Granite Belt, around the Darling Downs and Toowoomba, and up to the South and North Burnett. Further north in Tropical North Queensland fruit wines are generating increasing interest.

There are seven major areas in Queensland that boast a diverse and tasty selection!
