Movin' to the country, gonna eat me a lotta cheeses
Ever have one of those weeks where the city just seems too much, and you need a change of pace? That was me last week. Don't get me wrong, I love having everything in arm's reach, with something going on every weekend, but there is something the countryside gives you that you just can't get anywhere else.
Flash forward to cruising down the open road with the windows down and fresh air pouring into the car. After an extremely busy week, there is nothing better than a weekend away with a few of your besties.
Stanthorpe was our choice of a weekend getaway, and a great choice it was. Hidden away in south east Queensland, about 220km from Brisbane, Stanthorpe is a warm and friendly town. This cute tourist destination is nestled amongst the Granite Belt and Granite Highlands, boasting over 50 wineries and restaurants.
This country town is known for its charm with so many things to do and places to visit, my only regret is not taking longer to explore the area. Although 3 days was enough to explore a lot of the area, I think I could have spent a week there relaxing amongst nature.
Although this was ideal for a girls getaway, it is also a great family destination. Go on, head out to Stanthorpe this weekend. You won't regret it!
