Queensland country weekends away

Fresh air, good wine and beautiful landscapes in Queensland countryside. Looking for a weekend away? 

There's plenty to do in country Queensland. Pack a rucksack and explore Girraween National Park or the lush and lovely Lamington National Park. Or if walking is not your thing, a driving holiday in Southern Queensland might just be the answer. There are waterfalls and rainforests and plenty of wildlife to discover.

The Queensland hinterlands are home to charming towns packed with cafes and craft shops. How about a weekend in a B&B in Montville or Mount Tamborine? And don't discount the Atherton Tablelands either. 

From historic Charters Towers to festivities in Toowomba; from the Outback to the South Burnett wine region, there's a country escape for everyone. 

Away from the city, the Sunshine State has a diversity of places to visit. Here are four great ideas on where to go and where to stay for a wonderful country weekend. So pack your bags and explore Queensland
