You may have already put your jumpers away if you live on the coast and now you can start peeling off the layers up in cool country too. The warmer weather is definitely on its way and the fruit trees think so too with blossoms already appearing. I say it every spring but it truly is such a pretty time of year to visit the granite belt. Unfortunately, for some, we did not see the soft white stuff fall from the sky this winter but we were prepared - see the picture below! I think we might be putting that right up the back of the shed for a while!

Stanthorpe's Big Thermometer
Stanthorpe grew something new over winter - something big. Yes, for the coolest place in Queensland we now boast the WORLDs' biggest....no?.. okay Australias' biggest...no? Okay, okay, how about Queenslands' biggest THERMOMETER! Well, it's big and it's in Stanthorpe. It actually tells you the temperature - how very cool - pardon the pun!!!! Come and take your souvenir selfie with the Big Thermometer for no other reason other than because it's big.... and cool !!

A very lucky man received a great gift for his 60th birthday from his lovely wife - a Steam Power to Pedal Power tour which includes a steam train ride and a bicycle tour - what a perfect way to see and experience the granite belt. Take a look at the short video below for a snapshot of what you can experience on this tour. Thanks for coming with us and allowing us to share this special video of your day.
In August we hosted the team from Queensland Weekender. We really enjoyed the day showing off the region and hope we conveyed that the granite belt is a great place to visit any time of year. The episode features just some of the places we can visit on our tours, there's too much to fit in to a 4 minute slot. Take a look at the Queensland Weekender episode on Granite Belt Bicycle Tours if you missed it on TV. Let us know what you think.
