Introducing Darling Downs

Wine-tasting trips are the main reason to explore Darling Downs, the area west of the Great Dividing Range in southern Queensland. A swathe of rolling plains and endless blue horizons, the farmland is certainly pastoral, but if there isn’t a vineyard on the corner, there isn’t much to go out of your way for. Spend a day with glass in hand touring the scenic Granite Belt vineyards, Queensland’s most promising wine-growing district, and then walk it off amid the dramatic bush landscapes of Girraween and Sundown National Parks.
