The South Burnett region is in south-east Queensland, within a few hours drive of the state capital, Brisbane.
On the rolling hillsides an hour or two inland from the Pacific Ocean, we have a climate similar to Australia’s famous Hunter Valley wine-producing region. Our long warm summers and mild winters are also reminiscent of Mediterranean regions. The South Burnett region was the site of intense volcanic activity in the distant past and this has created a variety of rich soils and opportunities for cultivation. The distinctive terroir is one of the secrets of our award-winning wines and produce.
There are now more than a dozen different vineyards in the region as well as traditional dairy industry, cattle, peanuts and other niche market garden producers.
It's a picturesque region to visit and a popular weekend destination. Come for a leisurely drive through vineyards, olive groves, farmland and small country towns, making stops at cellar doors and farm gates to sample the local produce.
