Located around 280km from the Gold Coast and 250km from Brisbane. Depending on the time of the year the drive out can also bring a few adventures along the way. Summer holds the beautiful sunflower fields in along Allora and Warwick. Stanthorpe is spectacular in Autumn; rich in fall colours, and the harvest season for picking the delicious Stanthorpe apples. Spring showcases the apple blossoms, vines and wildflowers. It is also the time for wine tasting! Make sure you check out the Granite Belt Primavera Festival.
We chose to stay at Girraween Environmental Lodge. Why? Because of its location! Set on four hundred acres of natural bushland and surrounded by the Girraween National Park. The self-contained wooden cabins are spaced out throughout the large property to give you plenty of privacy. Each cabin comes with its own indoor fireplace!
The property has plenty of amazing bushwalks starting from your own doorstep. Walks take you up to the property’s private rock formations, a waterfall and some rock pools. Spot the kangaroos and wildlife along the way.
In summer enjoy their outdoor spa and pool, whereas in winter snuggle up with a local bottle of wine by the warm outside fire pit.
Camping options at Girraween National Park are also available.
