Location & Nearby Attractions
Visit the Gourmet Fruit and Vegitable Bowl of Queensland – The Granite Belt is sure to excit all the senses.
On the New South Wales Border just two-and-a half hours drive from Brisbane, the Granite Belt sits high on a plateau of the Great Dividing Range, more than 1000 metres above sea level, which feels
like you are close to the heavens. The Granite Belt is small but diverse, stretching just 60kms from north to south and roughly half as wide.
40 Cellar Doors
40 Cellar Doors
Many people start at our wineries, with more than 55 vineyards and 40 boutique cellar doors. Innovative local winemakers are carving out an impressive reputation for the region with a range of awards.
The Granite Belt is a versatile growing region due to its varying elevation which ranges from 700m to more than 1200m above sea level. Main wine styles include Chardonnay, Verdelho, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. In recent years the Granite Belt has also proved a successful producer of more than 21 alternative varieties which are marketed under the Strange Bird brand. Dedicated to continuous improvement, we are home to the Queensland College of Wine Tourism.
The best way to experience our wine region is to take a tour – and make someone else the designated driver. For more information or bookings see the Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre.
It was all about Tin
Historians record that Stanthorpe is the only town on the Downs which owes its birth to minerals and not agriculture. By 1872 the area was experiencing a mining rush, which gave Stanthorpe its name: stannum
is Latin for tin and thorp is English for village. The rush brought people from many countries, and for a time became the largest alluvial tin mining and mineral field in Queensland. Gold, silver, copper, wolfram,
arsenic and other important minerals were also found.
