Southern Queensland Country | Things to do

Be charmed by the gentle pace of Southern Queensland Country. Explore the lush hinterland and national parks in the region, then recharge with world-class food and five-star wines from passionate local producers.

Food and wine

Southern Queensland Country is one of the state’s great gourmet destinations. Follow a food and wine trail through the region, taste cool-climate wines at cellar doors in the Granite Belt, pick your own fresh cherries, apples or strawberries from local growers, and learn from the experts at a cooking school.

Country life

Get a taste of authentic country life. Kids will love feeding the chickens or milking the cows when you spend the night at a family-friendly farm stay and see how working sheep and cattle stations operate. Surround yourself in natural wonders with a visit to the Bunya Mountains and Girraween National Park.
