Valleys and Vines

Multiple Locations

Overnight in a timber cottage overlooking the Gold Coast skyline en route to Queensland's premier wine destination - the Granite Belt - with the largest granite rock formations in the Southern Hemisphere. Join a cellar door tour or vineyard-hop yourself; sampling award winning wine and fresh produce handpicked straight from the paddock.

Continue north through the Darling Downs and Toowoomba and descend into the South Burnett wine region, with cottage accommodation neighbouring olive groves, rolling vineyards and patchwork paddocks.
