New Moniker for Stanthorpe

We've been called many things including the Queensland apple and grape capital, the Queensland capital of cool, but now Stanthorpe has a few other titles to our credit.

In this year's Keep Australia Beautiful campaign, the results of the 2010 Ergon Energy Darling Downs Regional Awards declared:
  • Tidiest Town = Stanthorpe.
  • Conservation Champions = Stanthorpe
  • Resource Recovery = Stanthorpe
  • Outstanding Accomplishment = Stanthorpe
Stanthorpe is of course the main town in the Granite Belt Wine Country region. We send our congratulations to neighbouring Killarney community who picked up the Bush Spirit award!
