Take a quiet side-track from the Warrego Highway or New England Highway to find the hamlet of Kingsthorpe. Kingsthorpe is just a 15-minute panoramic drive west of Toowoomba.

Home to both Gowrie Mountain Estate Vineyard and Cellar Door and also Wedgetail Ridge Estate Winery, which are open by appointment. Gowrie Mountain Estate offers accommodation onsite in the historic homestead, while Sugarloaf Mountain Country Retreat, just up the road offers accommodation close to both wineries.

The eastern part of the area has several scenic lookouts which provide expansive views over Rosalie Plains and portions of the Darling Downs. One of the most easily accessible is located just outside Kingsthorpe at Mt Kingsthorpe Park and is well worth a look. A graded walking track from the lookout’s car park takes visitors to the summit, which provides expansive views as well as a glimpse of some of the original rainforest vegetation that once covered all of Mt Kingsthorpe.

A service station is also situated in Kingsthorpe for your convenience.
