Only nature makes moments like these in Southern Queensland Country

If it’s been a while since your sense of wonder had a workout, it’s time to take it, along with sturdy shoes and a shady hat, on a trip to Southern Queensland Country.

Days spent wandering ancient forests, nights staring at an ocean of stars, or a week camping beside a sleepy creek will remind you we never outgrow our fascination with the natural environment, and the outdoors is the best place to connect – with ourselves and the people we love.

Moments like these are made with food, wine and conversation

Food and wine enjoyed with family and friends, especially on weekends and holidays, are often the cornerstone of our memories, anchoring our stories and reminding us of celebrations.

The oaky scent of a wine barrel, a child’s grin as they taste cream fresh from the churn, the crunch of an apple enjoyed at the farm gate are memories that bring us joy throughout our lives. And Southern Queensland Country is filled with places where food and wine are more than something to eat and drink; they are grown, prepared and served to create the moments that become memories.
