VISIT STANTHORPE: Swap the city hustle for a country escape and live the good life for a day, or stay for longer in the pretty little town of Stanthorpe and surrounds, just 90 minutes south west of Brisbane. The area is well known for its breathtaking natural landscapes, excellent wine experiences, and fresh local produce (particularly stone fruit and apples) THE STANTHORPE VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE has a great range of information and assistance to visitors travelling throughout the Stanthorpe and Granite Belt area. You’ll find it at 28 Leslie Parade, Stanthorpe. Give them a ring on (07) 4681 2057 to find out if anything you want to see has been impacted by the drought or water restrictions – but given that everyone has rallied around (including the State Government), the town is operating pretty well as normal. Open all year (except Christmas Day) from 9.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. Visit the area’s website on http://www.southerndownsandgranitebelt.com.au. (Photo by L.J. May)
