St George

From the moment you arrive to the time you leave, St George relaxes the senses in all the right ways. Perched on the banks of the mighty Balonne River, it is the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Balonne Shire. A star feature, the two kilometre stretch of shady riverbank walkway which begins below the Jack Taylor Weir and travels alongside the township where you'll find picnic and barbecue facilities, a flood height marker, exercise equipment and information signs on fish and birds unique to this area.

In an unassuming small brick building in the main street, you'll find humble emu eggs carved into stunning, illuminated pieces of art at The Unique Egg. Local character and artisan Steve Margaritus or 'Stavros' has hand-carved an amazing variety of scenes on each egg and illuminated them. For the wine lover Riversands Wines satisfies your thirst for a good drop. With a free, personalised wine tasting at the cellar door you're sure to find a new favourite. Not only do they offer superb wine but why not relax and enjoy their shady country gardens and outdoor café offering scones and homemade jam or a cheese platter and a glass of wine.

To really take in the Balonne River's magnitude of water, pack a few drinks and nibbles and jump on board a Sandytown River Cruise. As you idle down the middle of the river, sit back and enjoy the views and abundant birdlife including pelican's cockatoo's and eagles.

Fill in the morning or afternoon by experiencing the St George Cotton Self-Drive Trail. Pack your thermos and smoko as you head off and get to know more about the local cotton industry. The St George Heritage Centre also offers plenty of historical information and artefacts, blacksmith, printing press, old gaol and courthouse. Take a step back in time as early as the 1800s by discovering the 45 minute drive route known as the St George Heritage Trail. Pick up a brochure from the Visitor Information Centre to explore important historical sites, colourful stories and buildings that have shaped the town's history.
