Stanthorpe is a lovely country town in the area called the Granite Belt. It is a 3 hour drive south west from Brisbane up into the highlands. It is the coldest town in Queensland and therefore can show off some autumn colours, which we don't get in many other areas of Qld.
We went to Stanthorpe for a reunion of a few members of the Port Moresby Judo Club. 50 years ago we all belonged to the club in P/NG. We stayed for 2 nights in a motel which was on the banks of Quart Pot Creek. I went for a walk along the creek, I was enthralled with the beauty.
The Granite Belt area is famous for its wine. The grape vine is showing off its colours.
This house is called a Queenslander as the architecture is what was used in the early days of settlement. The houses were built up off the ground and with big wrap around verandas to keep them cool.
I mistakenly grabbed the wrong lens for my DSLR camera when I left home. I was mad with myself and so I had to make do with my phone and the macro lens which I had brought by mistake
