Southern Queensland Country NEWSLETTER

Southern Queensland Country

Somewhere in Southern Queensland Country, someone just like you is lost in the moment. You see, it is somewhere you and your family and friends can quickly forget about everything on the daily to-do list.

Somewhere, you can all press the pause button and focus on the more important things, like the spectacular natural wonders, the stories behind historic sandstone buildings, that cheeky shiraz from the winery up the road or just spending time with loved ones. It is somewhere with a diverse range of places to stay, from charming B&Bs and tranquil mountain cottages to modern country retreats and traditional farmstays for the family.
