Explore Stanthorpe

Spectacular national parks, wineries, orchards, micro-breweries and festivals make Stanthorpe the ultimate getaway destination. Stanthorpe’s crisp winter mornings, sun-filled days and warm open fires with a glass of Granite Belt port are hard to beat! Surely the best reason to visit the town of Stanthorpe is to sample the fruits of the vine. The popularity of Stanthorpe’s wines attracts discriminating palates to the area all year round, and the growth of gourmet restaurants makes the vineyards an ideal lovers retreat. The changing seasons are celebrated with the famous Apple and Grape Harvest Festival (held every even numbered year), The Brass Monkey Season and a host of other events. South of Stanthorpe are four national parks – Sundown, Boonoo Boonoo, Bald Rock and Girraween with its spectacular granite formations and profusion of spring wildflowers. Stanthorpe’s interesting mix of culture is reflected in the range of art and craft that the community produces. You can see local artwork at the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery which also hosts world-class travelling exhibitions. Before you leave Stanthorpe, remember to load your car with a box of seasonal fruit fresh from the farm gate – succulent peaches, berries, plums, nectarines, apples, pears or apricots.
