Firstly, start at the Visitor Information Centre, situated on the beautiful Quart Pot Creek. The volunteers will answer all of your questions about what to see on the Granite Belt.
The Big Thermometer. New in 2018 the newest biggest thing in town. Find yourself down there at dawn and you might see temperatures well below zero.
Quart Pot Creek, yes a favourite for all. There is a 5km walking path including the amazing Red Bridge. It is a serene and beautiful walk, featuring some amazing rocky outcrops.
Maryland and High Streets. Our quaint main streets are filled with local shopkeepers, great coffee and a great way to spend some time in Stanthorpe. There are some amazing murals popping up, including in Farley Plaza.
Mt Marlay. Of course Marlay could not miss out on visiting the mountain overlooking Stanthorpe. The very place he was named after.
The clock tower. The first to be built in post-federation Queensland in 1901. Historic and picturesque.
Heading a little further south to Ballandean and you can visit the huge Fruitisforus Dinosaur on the highway and the incredible man-made pyramid on Jacobsens Road.
