  1. Picnic at the Granite Belt

The Granite Belt is one of Queensland’s premier country getaway destinations.

  1. Sight-seeing in Bald Rock National Park

For adventurous couples, hiking in the Bald Rock National Park should redefine a romantic activity. Although it requires more work than some other romantic activities, unwinding in nature and taking in the stunning scenery together is definitely worth the effort. The national park is open to people with its picturesque walks, infinite lookouts, and boundless countryside. Meanwhile, its mountains are picture-perfect venues where couples can take many photos as a reminder of their romantic escape.

Bald Rock offers tourists a picnic area with gas barbecues and picnic tables. There are also scattered shaded spots in the picnic area to curb extreme heat during days when the sun is too high. Therefore, coming to Bald Rock is an ideal way to enjoy the serenity of nature with the person you love the most.

  1. Camp in Girraween National Park

Girraween is the perfect venue for people wanting to experience the stunning natural beauty of Stanthorpe and surrounding Granite Belt. The national park is home to plants, wildlife, and landscape that people can visit. However, aside from the scenery people can see, Girraween is also rich in history and culture. The Aboriginal custodians lived, hunted, gathered, and prospered in the area. Although many of their historical places have been lost over the years, old markings remain to commemorate their existence.
