With the immediate post-Christmas heat of Brisbane bearing down upon us, we decided to reward ourselves with a few days away in the cooler climes of Stanthorpe, staying at the Cypress Post homestead. At this time of year, friends usually head to the beach but we all agreed that a few days touring the local wineries in the milder weather, and a day hiking and biking in Girraween National Park would be a more sensible way to avoid the inevitable crowds, heat and traffic of the coast.
Our party of six headed off in three different cars from Brisbane on Thursday morning for the 2.5 hour drive, noticing the heat drop off markedly as we crested Cunningham’s Gap. The Cypress Post homestead is easy to find, and just a five minute drive outside of Stanthorpe on the Stanthorpe-Texas Road. The first surprise was the house itself; a huge Queenslander with a wrap-around verandah, three large bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with claw foot bath), and open plan living area with a fireplace. The house is surrounded by bushland and grape vines, with views in every direction. The second surprise was the welcome package – Cypress Post wines, a breakfast hamper filled to overflowing with local produce, and another few bottles of wine chilling in the fridge.Read more ›
