You have to see it to know its true beauty. Fall in love with Autumn on the Granite Belt…..inside the wine is maturing and outside the deciduous landscape is turning golden.
The temperature ranges from about 8.8 to 21.9 Celsius, which means our days are mild and humid free, and our nights are chilly, so the timber is back in our Villas and you can enjoy the warmth of a log fire when you return from exploring all that Stanthorpe and the Granite Belt have to offer.
Autumn is harvest and vintage time on the Granite Belt and there is heaps to see and do. Our apples, pears, grapes apricots and olives are all in season, along with peas, beans, broccoli, cabbage, capsicum, pumpkins and tomatoes to name a few, so a visit to our Farmers Markets is a must. We’ve got dog shows, bike rides, sunset vineyard walks and Opera in the Vineyard.
Scott and I are joining our friends Faith and Steven from Grovely House B&B tomorrow night for a Sunset Vineyard Walk at Twisted Gum Winery. Another first for us and we’re really looking forward to it.
You might have seen our post featuring George the Koala…..well it turns out he’s not too keen on being harassed by Grey Fantails, so he’s relocated to a quieter spot further up the block today, to catch up on his sleep. The Kangaroos were back this afternoon being admired by our guests and our resident Echidna is still causing Scott to lose more of his hair with his constant digging in the pathways and garden edges, leaving a trail of holes behind him.
With all the recent rains, our guests are telling us that the creeks are flowing and the walks around Girraween National Park are just stunning. So, pack a couple of jumpers, head on up the mountain and come and join us for a drink in the gazebo as the sun sets. Now that’s gold!
