Australia’s Country Way guides you to the delights and treasures that pepper the countryside of the Great Dividing Range. From Sydney to Rockhampton the holiday is as much about savouring the journey as reaching the destination. Winding roads reveal sweeping vistas, seasonal produce and welcoming hospitality.
Kilometres of crops and grazing stock flank the road, interrupted by stunning natural formations and welcoming towns. Accommodation ranges from friendly roadside motels to holiday parks, cosy cabins, romantic bed and breakfasts, luxury retreats and farm stays. Like a giant smorgasbord, Australia’s Country Way uncovers the true blue producers and there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy the country harvest. Each region has its claim to culinary fame and restaurants, cafes, cellar doors and deli’s harness these assets along the route.
Explore wine regions of the Hunter Valley, Tamworth, New England, Granite Belt and South Burnett regions. Uncover the bountiful citrus, beef and grain growing districts of the Darling Downs, South and North Burnett, Sandstone Wonders and Rockhampton. Enjoy the fruit and vegetables of Stanthorpe and Warwick in Queensland’s high country or drop a line for fresh fish in the rivers, dams and lakes dotted along the highway.
