Explore The Granite Belt Region
At 1000 metres elevation, the air seems fresher, the sky more blue in Granite Belt Wine Country, Queensland. Discover a landscape of dramatic beauty and diversity with four distinct seasons – log fires (and occasional snow) in winter and cool summer nights where you can escape the swelter of the coast.
Explore our unique National Parks where giant granite formations emerge from thick forests.
There are tours to take and excellent places to stay. Wines to taste. Food to enjoy. Trails to walk or cycle. The Pyramid to climb. Everything to make your visit satisfying and memorable.
Our Festival is only possible with the generous support of our amazing sponsors
