“Trip to Stanthorpe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Over the June long weekend 5 of us had a girls weekend away in Stanthorpe with the intent of course to taste a drop or two of the local crops. Well we certainly did quite a few wineries, cheese place, raspberry farm, olive orchard, jam factory and lots more. You can do a lot in a long weekend as most of the wineries and farms are just off the main road and do a circuit around Stanthorpe. We stayed in a farm house called "Glen Robin" which had a couple of fire places and plenty of wood. It was quite cool but beautiful the only complaint in staying at the farm house was those 2 roosters that started at 3am and didn't stop until well into mid morning. That's all part of the experience so I suggest you may want to take some earplugs if that will bother you.

“Queensland's Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

If you want to escape the incessant heat of Queensland - head to Stanthorpe and enjoy not just the cooler climate, but also a host of things to do - not simply wineries here! Produce, activities, scenic drives are just some of the things to keep you busy here. Fantastic!!!

“Stanthorpe the centre for a great short break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

We loved the Bald Rock walk. Good tracks, really interesting geography/geology and you get up to a good height for views over the country. Girraween national park was great too, although the climb to the top of the Pyramid requires a good head for heights! Again, excellent tracks and spectacular views. We were here in early apple season, and the fruit trees around Stanthorpe were laden. Delicious.
