Sustainable Country Living With Stanthorpe Winery Accommodation
The ground work of Glen Aplin Gardens was established over 30 years ago. Tall conifers and winding wisteria meld together with Australian bush and gums to paint a continuous pallet of colour and fragrances all year. The Stanthorpe region has natural scenery that has its own unique feel to it that is very inspiring.
Glen Aplin Gardens offers the ultimate peaceful country retreat and winery accommodation in Queensland’s flourishing wine region, just a five-minute drive south of Stanthorpe. Our property is situated on the crest of a hill, offering stunning panoramic views of the Severn Valley and Mount Tully. Guests are welcome to explore the ten acres of manicured gardens, natural bushland, working farm, and a fine onsite art gallery and cafe restaurant.
Nestled amongst thick mountain bush land just mere minutes from Stanthorpe, our countryside farmhouses will provide you with the perfect escape for a short break or holiday stay to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Let the crisp, clean mountain air, our country hospitality, and the unique scenery of the Granite Belt, renowned for its fruit, wines and rocky National Parks, give you a great time. Glen Aplin Gardens is centred in one of Australia‘s diverse wine and fruit growing regions, so whether you are interested in wine, the arts, and music, we have something for you.
What Our Winery Accommodation Can Offer You
Our farmhouses are available to host couples and groups, as well as catered functions and weddings. The onsite Gallery Café provides our guests with stunning valley views while dining on old fashioned home cooking. Besides the local scenery, we also have a fabulous art gallery with inspiring paintings, pottery, wood carvings, furniture, handmade jewellery and much more made by local artists for sale. We provide a venue for celebratory events, as well as old fashioned movie nights on Saturdays with our “Dinner & Flicks” option.
Tours of the local wineries and vineyards can be easily arranged. Glen Aplin Gardens highly recommends that our guests go with Crisp Bus Tours for winery tours. This is a great way for our guests to gain a better understanding of the processes of viticulture and oenology that makes the wine taste so delicious, which you will get to taste in the process. They are available to pick up and drop off guests at our gate for your convenience, meaning you can taste as much wine as you want without having to worry about driving or taxi costs.
If you drive to our Stanthorpe retreat with an all-electric car, then you will be pleased to know that Glen Aplin Gardens has a Tesla Destination Charging Station on site. Our guests with electric cars can now experience seamless travel from Brisbane to Glen Aplin in the Granite Belt.
