Regional Romance in the Granite Belt

The latest edition of Australia's most romantic magazine, Holidays for Couples, ventures to the Granite Belt for Regional Romance.

Journalist Tiana Templeman urges us to experience the perfect mini getaway in Stanthorpe.

Queensland’s wine capital provides a welcome escape from the big smoke with plenty of cellar doors and stellar dining at country prices. Food and wine is the main attraction here so bring your appetite! 

Wine tasting is a delight at Stanthorpe as the winemakers themselves hold court at most cellar doors. Amateur aficionados can take their passion one step further at the hands-on Winemaker for a Weekend course at the Queensland College of Wine Tourism, a training college which also has an excellent restaurant specialising in local produce.
