Do you want to feel cold for a change - this is the place to go. Stanthorpe is high, cool, famous for its fruit and wines, its cheeses and pies. What we loved were the granite boulders, the National Parks, the forests of eucalyptus and the most amazing viewpoints of the whole of the surrounding area which had not one sight of human habitation. Now that truly is remarkable.
We stopped at an orchard farm and were in awe at the colour and the size of the apples. We pinched two windfalls off the ground and ate them at a viewpoint and agreed they were probably one of the most delicious crunchy apples we had ever eaten. Could it be because they were "taken?"
We explored the city of Stanthorpe and indulged in some taster paddles of craft beer. We enjoyed meeting and talking to our B+B hosts about life in the colder climes and the various landmarks in the area. There was so much more to see and do.
We roamed the roads and loved the country side - the grasses which gave the fields a red hue and the row of rusty tractors, like soldiers in a line of duty, now fallen by the wayside.
