A picturesque drive three hours south-west of Brisbane’s CBD and approximately ten minutes from Stanthorpe, Granite Gardens offers complete relaxation as soon as you enter the grounds of our property. Four well-appointed cottages ensure privacy and serenity and are well suited to couples seeking a romantic getaway or simply a relaxing break. Set on thirty-seven acres, Granite Gardens comprises beautiful gardens set amongst majestic Wallangarra gums, through which our guests are welcome to meander.

Chris and Lynne Nolan Over the past ten years we have enjoyed travelling both overseas and throughout Australia. What appealed to us most during our travels was the hospitality we experienced in short-stay guest houses and B&Bs that made our holidays even more memorable. So, in 2017, we decided that it was time to leave the treadmill of corporate life and begin our search for a property where we could emulate the experiences of our own travels. In February 2018, we discovered Granite Gardens and being keen gardeners realised that it encompasses both our passions; to provide an excellent experience for our guests and to continue to nurture the gardens that surround us. We took ownership of Granite Gardens in September 2018. We feel fortunate to have found this magical part of Australia and to be able to provide you with an experience that leaves you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

The Stanthorpe region is quickly becoming known for its locally grown produce and exemplary wineries that feature unique, cold climate varietals from across the world. A breakfast hamper, showcasing local produce is included in the tariff. Visitors come to the Granite belt region to enjoy not only our region’s wines and cellar doors, but also to visit our magnificent national parks. Hikers, cyclists, foodies, market-goers and craft beer fans… there is so much variety on the Granite Belt; you will want to return time and again to explore this beautiful part of Queensland.
