Granite Belt Hero2016

The land of the Quandamooka People, Traditional Owners of the South-East Queenland region. 

Queensland’s wine industry is one of the State’s best keep secrets with a history dating back to the 1860’s.

The Queensland wine industry has grown considerably over the years and now approximately 1500 hectares throughout the State are under vine. The majority of this growth has occurred during the past decade with significant plantings throughout the southeast corner of the State in its best known wine growing region, the Granite Belt

The Granite Belt is only three hours drive from either Brisbane or the Gold Coast. Served by the New England Highway, this is the only place in Queensland that offers four distinct seasons. This premier wine producing area also experiences unique growing and ripening conditions, unlike elsewhere in Australia. The combination of cool weather and decomposed granite soils produces outstanding wines and a very diverse range of food. The region is home to almost 50 winery cellar doors.

Stanthorpe lies at the heart of the Granite Belt offering a range of diverse wine food experiences, boutique accommodation and access to some magnificent national parks as well as a year round calendar of events. 


A shift in the national domestic market in the early 1930s saw a decline in Queensland’s wine industry until the late 1960s when Ballandean Estate was established in what is now the State’s best known wine growing region, the Granite Belt.
