Granite Belt Selected As A Top 20 Australian Short Break

Time poor? A short-break is the perfect way to escape the everyday.

Australian Traveller Magazine has identified the Granite Belt as one of their top 20 short breaks in the June/July edition!

Ideal for a Food and Wine short-break, journalist Alissa Jenkins says you should definitely visit the 'Gourmet Granite Belt' soon.

Why? Australia's newest food trail produces all kinds of gourmet delights: cheese, chutney, chocolate...and wine. Stop for fresh jams at The Bramble Patch in Glen Alpin, Sutton's Juice Factory and Cidery in Thulimbah and Heavenly Chocolate in Wyberba. There's the Granite Belt Dairy for cheese straight from the pasture to the plate. 

Stay in Stanthorpe's (Ed note: Ballandean) Azjure Studio Retreat's luxe studios, each with a log fire, king-size bed and reclining spa bath for two. The region's two leading restaurants, Shiraz and Vineyard Cafe, are within a two-minute drive.

Book your short break to relax, rejuvenate, reconnect...and of course indulge in food and wine now!
