Six months with the family too long? Heres your escape
Stanthorpe, located in the Southern Downs region, has long been renowned for its wineries, orchards and pioneer history.
Did you know that Stanthorpe is also the creative hub of the Granite Belt? Indeed, the annual Granite Belt Art and Craft Trail, affectionately known as GBART, will be held on Friday, 30th of October, concluding at days end on Sunday, 1st of November. Event organisers have ensured that this will be a COVID sensitive event.
So what's the Art and Craft Trail all about? Event Founder, Rosy Chapman, describes it as a "meet the maker community wellbeing event offering a chance to get behind the scenes and connect with creative expression, a chance to try, learn, see, do, buy - something new."
The event includes exhibitions, displays, workshops, and open studios. Some of these may attract a small fee and require a reservation. For further details of events and times, go here.
Stanthorpe is approximately a three-hour drive from Brisbane, though I would allow an additional hour for a coffee stop at Toowoomba, Warwick, or the pretty little Mary Poppins township of Allora. It would also be advisable to book your accommodation soon - refer here.
