South East Country | Queensland
The Southern Downs and Granite Belt offers the perfect winter getaway.
Rug up for fresh cool days taking in the dramatic landscape of contrasts: from lush rainforest bordered by granite monoliths to lavender farms and vineyards. Then there's our 45 boutique wineries and cellar doors, plenty of places to dine and our events and festivals.
The natural beauty of the Southern Downs and Granite Belt inspires the thriving local arts community, and the Brass Monkey Season represents the peak of the region's cultural calendar. Warwick's Jumpers and Jazz in July festival will be a unique display of local wit, charm and colour, with custom knitted jumpers for the deciduous trees of the main street.
Other events to check out include Opera & Jazz in the Vineyard, Equestrian Triathlon and the Historic Leyburn Sprints.
