The Perfect Corporate Activity Day Out
The Granite Belt is where SE Queenslanders like to play. Northern Granite Belt is exactly 2.5hrs from Brisbane CBD or 1.5hrs from Toowoomba. The suburbs are replaced by the New England green rolling hills dotted with vines, activities, restaurants, walking trails, and farm gates, just waiting to be discovered.
Much of Queensland’s best produce is grown here, the high altitude gives cool climate wines that are awarded on the national stage, and lunch is an institution.
