Where to Stay for Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Harvest Festival

From quaint cottages and farm stays to soul-rejuvenating retreats, here in (and around) Stanthorpe, we’ll have you rising amongst the vineyards or within walking steps of local brewers.

You’ll be waking up to breathe in the fresh country air, 1,000 metres above sea level wherever you take your pick to rest your head across the region.

The Main Weekend

The ‘Main Weekend’ from 1 – 3 March 2022, featuring the Queensland Country Bank Food and Wine Fiesta, Grand Parade and bound-to-get-messy Grape Crushing, has accommodation being booked faster than you can say “Montepulciano”.

Where to look for vacancies around Stanthorpe…

  • Find Stanthorpe and Ballandean area accommodation availability on the Main Weekend listed on www.Trivago.com.au (P.S. Book directly with local accommodation operators to #SupportLocal)
  • Stay in Warwick nearby (there’s lots of accommodation vacancies in Warwick) and we’ll be very likely running a festival bus Warwick to Stanthorpe return on Saturday 2 March to make staying in Warwick during the festival even easier! We’ll likely also have a festival bus from Warwick on the Saturday 2 March 2024 (hang tight on your plans until we confirm this one).
Accommodation Diamondvale

Come the first weekend, we’ve got vacancy!

23 – 25 February 2022

Coming the first weekend of the festival has the advantage of securing accommodation right in the heart of Stanthorpe, meaning you can score yourself a stroll home (or should we say roll?) after long lunching at the Banchetto Italiano.

The bonus? You’ll be able to see talented musicians line Stanthorpe’s streets to busk it out in the Busking Championships (and it’s free too!).


The big weekend: Stay within a short drive
1 – 3 March 2022

When you stay in the Apple Capital, you don’t have to stay in the heart of Stanthorpe to get a taste of the harvest celebrations. Basing yourself in one of the many towns in the Granite Belt means you’ll get the bonus of the scenic drive and a better taste for the whole region. Across the region, you’ll find accommodation for all budgets and group sizes in under a 20-minute drive away.
