Life in Brisbane is always on the go, and sometimes that fast pace means you need a break! Did you know that you can indulge in a quick getaway from the city in as little as 2 hours away from the city? That’s what you get with Stanthorpe, where you can taste the region’s pride through its wines, wander through nature’s artistry, or just kick back and enjoy the peace with the cosy R&R on the Ravine! If you’re plotting a quick escape with your loved one this weekend, we have created a quick Stanthorpe weekend itinerary that balances adventure with tranquility.

Friday: Arrival and Acclimation

Upon your and your partner’s arrival, settle into your Stanthorpe accommodation, and take a moment to breathe in the fresh country air. Unpack, unwind, and as the sun begins to dip, pour yourself a glass of local wine and watch the sunset from your balcony or take a leisurely walk to the property’s summit for a panoramic view.

As the evening approaches, indulge in your pre-ordered platter from R&R on the Ravine. Enjoy the spread of artisan cheeses, the tang of antipasto, and the sweetness of Stanthorpe honey, all ready to be enjoyed with a glass of wine as you recline on the deck or picnic on the lush grass as the sun sets.

To top it off, consider getting the Abundance Healing massage to address your specific healing needs. Whether to alleviate your muscle aches or just to soothe your soul, you and your partner can indulge in a calm, peaceful night and be prepared for a busy Saturday adventure.

Saturday: Exploration and Indulgence

Awaken to the sounds of the bushland and start your day with a hearty breakfast! Then, set off to explore the wineries across the Stanthorpe landscape. The region’s cool climate and unique terroir are celebrated at local establishments like the family-owned Brass Monkey Brew House, where you can sip on handcrafted beers, or the iconic Castle Glen, boasting a castle-like façade and an array of natural, chemical-free spirits and liqueurs. Don’t miss the Granite Belt Brewery for lunch and a taste of their preservative-free brews, then stop at a few of the wineries in the afternoon to truly experience the magic of the Stanthorpe vineyards.

After a day of tasting and touring, return to R&R on the Ravine were you can watch the sunset from the summit with a glass of bubbly. As the stars sparkle in the sky, the crackle of the fireplace or the comfort of your Stanthorpe accommodation with fireplace beckon for a night of serene relaxation.

Sunday: Leisure and Departure

On your final day, why not take it slow? Enjoy the luxury of a late breakfast on your porch, accompanied by the local wildlife. If you’re up for one last adventure, the nearby national parks such as the Girraween National Park offer a change of scenery and a dose of nature before you head home.

If you’re looking for a sensory experience with your loved one, consider a quick visit to the Aloomba Lavender Farm, or try the Sutton Farm’s famous apple pie!

As the Stanthorpe getaway concludes, the serenity of R&R on the Ravine lingers, a testament to the time spent in each other’s company. If you’re seeking an escape that promises to rejuvenate and reconnect, contact us to book your romantic Brisbane getaway today!
