A trip to Stanthorpe and the beautiful Granite Belt area would not be complete without experiencing first hand what makes it so special that people keep coming back time and time again. Is it the some 50+ wineries or the much cooler climate, maybe the relaxed country atmosphere, or the National Parks?
Below is just a small selection of what the Granite Belt has to offer.
Girraween National Park – Located 30 minutes south of Stanthorpe, it has 17km of walking tracks which range from 1km return walk to the Granite Arch to a 10.4km return walk to Mt Norman. Also there are picnic tables and camping areas.
Bald Rock National Park & Boonoo National Park – Bald Rock National Park is 45 minutes south of Stanthorpe along the Mt Lindesay Road. Bald Rock is the main feature of the park. Bald Rock rises 200 metres above the surrounding bushland and is the largest exposed Granite Rock in Australia.
Sundown National Park – Sundown lies on the Queensland/New South Wales border and is largely a wilderness National Park. Travel west on the Texas Road. The eastern entrance is only accessible by 4 wheel drive.
