Valleys and Vines


Self-drive this 900 kilometre picturesque country loop from Brisbane through Southern Queensland Countries valleys and vines. Start on top of Mt Tamborine within the clouds, surrounded by lush rainforest and antique trinket shops and cafes. Once you spend some time sampling handmade beer and wine from the local microbrewery and cellar doors you will want to extend your trip to discover the nearby World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park. Overnight in a timber cottage overlooking the Gold Coast skyline en route to Queensland's premier wine destination - the Granite Belt - with the largest granite rock formations in the Southern Hemisphere. Join a cellar door tour or vineyard-hop yourself; sampling award winning wine and fresh produce handpicked straight from the paddock. Continue north through the Darling Downs and Toowoomba and descend into the Kingaroy, with cottage accommodation neighbouring olive groves, rolling vineyards and patchwork paddocks. Stroll local art galleries and country market stalls before heading for the hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and popular coastline of Noosa.
