Quart Pot Creek, Stanthorpe

Stanthorpe, Southern Downs Area

The pretty Quart Pot Creek meanders through granite country and natural bushland, passes through the town of Stanthorpe, and continues out through the south-west, where it meets Spring Creek to form the Severn River. Granite outcrops are evident along the water course - and make good spots to sit or picnic. The creek banks have been attractively landscaped by the local Council to include five kilometres of walking and cycling tracks, linking one end of town to the Red Bridge. You'll find tranquil picnic and barbecue areas along the way. Take time to walk alongside this beautiful creek, past water-worn granite boulders; take some bread to feed the ducks, watch for native birds, paddle at the water's edge or just relax under the shade of a tree.

Near the visitor information centre on the creek bank is Kidspace - a brass monkey-themed playground for families and a good spot to take a break.
