The area gets its name from the granite rocks that make up much of the area and distinguish it from other areas throughout Queensland. Few people know that the majority of Queensland’s $40 million dollar apple crop comes from the roughly one million apple trees grown by the many local orchardists. But what interests our guests more than the apples, is the large selection of wineries local to us – fifty-plus wineries are scattered throughout the region, with most of those located very close to Country Style Caravan Park.
The Granite Belt is a very popular tourist location with most visitors coming from within a short drive from either South East Queensland or northern New South Wales.
While winter is very popular and festivals are held each year to celebrate Stanthorpe’s uniqueness, it’s the summer months when the region really benefits from being a cool contrast to the coastal humidity – a refreshing change!
The area around Country Style Caravan Park is absolutely strewn with local businesses ready to provide you exceptional experiences & tastings. They include:

Country Style Caravan Park is the closest caravan park to the picturesque Girraween National Park with its spectacular flowers, dramatic landscapes, stunning granite rock formations, most notable of which is known as ‘The Pyramid’ and enough walking tracks to tire out even the most active legs.
Also nearby is the incredible Bald Rock National Park, just north of Tenterfield. Bald Rock gets its name from a massive granite outcrop which towers over 200m above the surrounding landscape.
A piece of trivial information that you may not know… from the top of Bald Rock on a clear day, you can see the Glass House Mountains (Over 370km’s away) – the longest straight line view in Australia!
Just when you think you’ve got enough to see and do, we’ll remind you that the Sundown National Park, Boonoo Boonoo National Park with its renowned waterfall and Storm King Dam are also all within easy reach!
