Hankering for the Hinterland
Located only an hour from Brisbane, the Gold Coast Hinterland is great for 1 day Brisbane wine tours or a getaway.

Slurping in South Burnett
Another fairly new wine region, South Burnett is 200kms from Brisbane and is home to Queensland’s biggest vineyards.

Views from the Scenic Rim
This Brisbane wineries region is made up mostly of mountain and country scenery, with country pubs, art, bushwalking and, of course, wineries. When you’re not sipping on a squashed grape though, there are plenty of things to build up your thirst. There’s a whole range of adventures, from relaxing to romantic to just plain adventurous. Spa treatments, local shopping, art and wine tasting with your loved one, flying, hand gliding, hot air ballooning, helicopter rides, skydiving, paragliding and abseiling for the thrill seeker, and 4WDs, horse riding, waterskiing, kayaking, fishing and boating for the more relaxed adventurer.
The Scenic Rim also host and participate in a wide range of local events and activities, so keep an eye out for those. The most incredible part of the Scenic Rim, is that which gives it its name. According to the historians, the ‘Rim’ was formed 26 million years ago, and took 3 million years to form, so there’s something to debate over a glass of red at one of these lovely Queensland wineries.

Also, the annual Brisbane Wine Festival is great to be a part of, so if you’re into festivities and visiting Brisbane wineries, keep that in mind when you’re booking.
