Stanthorpe is known to be Queensland’s coldest town, however our property experiences warmer conditions on average. Winter offers crisp sunny days and cold nights with mild to moderate frost. Summer days are warm and beautiful, with little to no humidity. Perfect sunny skies are often followed by crisp, clear nights - perfect for hunting.
Like all high country regions, our weather can be changeable and unpredictable, sometimes offering four seasons in one day. We advise you bring a jacket year round and an extra jumper in Winter!
