At 1000 metres elevation, the air seems fresher, the sky more blue. Discover a landscape of dramatic beauty and diversity with four distinct seasons – log fires (and occasional snow) in winter, cool summer nights where you can escape the swelter of the coast.
The Granite Belt is crossed by the New England Highway that runs for more than 62 kms past apple orchards, vineyards and vast fields of strawberries, from Dalveen to the north of the bustling town of Stanthorpe, to Ballandean and beyond in the south.
It meets the border with NSW at the historic town of Wallangarra.
