Two hours drive from Brisbane to the top of the Granite Belt is this European-inspired retreat, with 30 acres of gardens, lawns, a vineyard and a winery. Heritage Estate cellar door has an extensive range of wines and liqueurs grown and made on the estate.

Heritage Estate accommodates 3 couples, with views of the stunning surrounding landscape. Each room a king or queen bed and other little luxuries such as the local newspaper. Throughout the property, you’ll find an eclectic collection of artworks and antiques.

Disconnect from reality, and reconnect with nature or your own mob of kangaroos and a resident koala. Completely off-grid, Vinewood Chalet is detox territory. A private place to rest, relax and refresh and is the epitome of privacy and luxury, with an outdoor Sauna. The two spacious bedrooms with king-size beds have granite ensuites, full granite kitchen and 2 lounge rooms, with spectacular vineyard views, and flanked by an apple orchard and backed by rainforest. Ideal for a group of friends or a family getaway, you will never want to leave.

Step back in time to 1864. The Winery Cedar Cottage is a beautiful three-room cottage that is completely lined with cedar so that you can smell the ambience as it would have been last century for their forefathers. Snuggle up on the leather lounge in front of the fire. All creature comforts are here, kitchenette, modern, marble bathroom with clawfoot bath and picture windows to view the forest from the bathtub, and your bedroom that looks out over the gardens. The original owner of this beautiful cedar lined cottage would have counted blessings. It contains a private bathroom, one Queen bed, and complimentary wine included.

Arrive from 12pm to enjoy lunch at the winery with the Chefs tasting menu accompanied by matched wines (Thu-Mon, optional extra).
