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.

Seasonal delights

Join in the pumpkin rolling during the Goomeri Pumpkin Festival in autumn and rug up for Jumpers and Jazz during winter. In spring, see Toowoomba in bloom during the annual Carnival of Flowers.
