Hello Spring!

There’s no better place to experience mother nature than in the Southern Downs and Granite Belt, and no better time than Spring.

This region’s natural beauty gives visitors the chance to relax and connect with nature – From handpicking the sweetest berries to gaining momentum uphill at Girraween, meeting the makers on a farmstay, to spotting rare birds while trekking to waterfalls – this region not only tastes good but is abundant in fun and free outdoor activities.

Are you ready to meet #TheMotherOfAll nature experiences in the Southern Downs and Granite Belt? 

Welcome to the Wild Wild West… literally!

If mother nature had children, Western Downs would be the spoilt one.

From dense rainforest in the mountains and lush lagoons, to fields as far as the eye can see, you can indulge in it all west of the Great Dividing Range.

With so much at your fingertips, you can choose how to acquaint yourself with your new surroundings; whether it be a relaxing introduction or a busy catch up.
