Stanthorpe VIC reopens today Wednesday 12 January

Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre (VIC) has reopened this morning and despite its extensive harbour views of recent days has survived the deluge completely in tact. Staff and volunteers have resumed their roles in providing information to locals and visitors alike. There is plenty of tourist accommodation available in the Queensland wine capital by calling 1800 SO COOL or visit
