Entertainment Venues

Dine, wine taste and experience the amazing facility that is Stanthorpe’s own Queensland College of Wine Tourism, a learning centre focussed on all things food, wine, tourism and hospitality.

It’s award winning Varias Restaurant is renown for showcasing local food and wines, and the talented young local who prepare and serve them. The Banca Ridge winery and Tastes of the Granite Belt cellar door provide a wonderful introduction to the region’s wine.

In February/March the popular Winemaker for a Weekend program coincides with grape harvest at the College.

As a joint venture between the University of Southern Queensland and the Queensland Government the college strives to provide quality training and learning experiences based in a true commercial operation.
