Stanthorpe Visitor Centre closed today

Tuesday 11 January 2.30pm unfortunately in the interests of safety the Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre is temporarily closed today due to severe weather conditions. Alternative contact information is on display at the door at 128 Leslie Parade Stanthorpe and visitors may call at the Stanthorpe Civic Centre in Marsh Street if assistance is required. Main road closure information is accessible here.

Stanthorpe is situated at 1000metres above sea level and while rainfall has been significant, water normally moves on quite quickly so we hope to reopen shortly.  Telephone and internet access to Granite Belt Wine & Tourism (GBWT) is limited as communication traffic is understandably high.  Staff are safe, as we hope are all our volunteers, members and the wider community.  Our heartfelt thoughts go to other communities and colleagues affected by this week. GBWT enquiries here.
