Today's destination is Stanthorpe, situated just on the Queensland side of the Queensland New South Wales border.

Highlights

Kooroomba Vineyards and Lavender Farm

The Kooroomba Vineyard & Lavender Farm is ideally located in the Scenic Rim. This stunning property is home to a cellar door, restaurant, and lavender shop overlooking 6 acres of vineyards and fields of lavender with views of the Scenic Rim Mountains.

Granite Belt Wineries 

Stanthorpe is home to 50+ vineyards and many outstanding cafes and restuarants. Soaked in European culture with produce as diverse as the seasons, the Granite Belt is a food enthusiast’s delight from the paddock to the plate. 

The Farm, Byron Bay 

Situated on the outskirts of Byron Bay, The Farm is predominately a working farm, home to a collection of independent businesses all sharing in a common goal "Grow, Feed, Educate." It's a great place to see how a farm works and suports the surrounding nature.

Rick Shores

This local's favourite is not only situation right on the water at Burleigh Heads, but the menu boasts an array of droolworthy items. Unsurprisingly, it received a chef’s hat in the 2019 and 2020 Australian Good Food Guide and landed a prized spot on the Australian Financial Review’s Top 100 Restaurants list.
