We bet spending the night inside a giant wine barrel isn’t on your bucket list, but thanks to the Granite Belt’s newest accommodation option, it can be.
Opening in October this year, Barrel View Luxury Cabins is a weekend getaway like no other, nestled in the heart of the Granite Belt. Just three hours from Brisbane, you’ll find it in Ballandean, deep in Queensland’s wine region and within throwing distance of Stanthorpe and epic national parks like Girraween and Bald Rock. Basically, if the novelty of sleeping in a wine barrel isn’t enough to get you there, the multitude of wineries and incredible hiking tracks nearby should convince you.
After days spent sampling vino and climbing granite peaks, retire back to your luxurious cabin, which features a comfy king-sized bed, a private en-suite and kitchenette, coffee machine, wi-fi and even a fluffy bathrobe and slippers. You’ll be treated to a complimentary welcome platter and bottle of wine on arrival, which you can enjoy on your own private deck, taking in the jaw-dropping views of the surrounding valley.
Sold? We sure are. Bookings aren’t open just yet, but you’ll want to snap one up when they are, because there’s just three cabins on the property, so they’re bound to get booked up fast. You can check out all the details and book yourself a stay when they open here.
Plan out your entire trip to the region with our Stanthorpe guide.
