Cycle from Vineyard to Vineyard on the Granite Belt
Experience the Granite Belt at a leisurely pace, cycling the quiet country roads which string the dozens of cellar doors and foodie stops together. A popular trail is the well marked Granite Belt Bike Trail, which follows 34km of quiet country roads, starting in Stanthorpe at the picturesque creek and meandering through quaint country back roads towards Ballandean, Queensland’s most famed wine region.
There’s seven more bike trails across the Stanthorpe region and for maps and information about riding them check out the Stanthorpe section of Ride the Great Divide website.
