Aloomba Lavender B and B, Stanthorpe

Aloomba Lavender on the Mount Lindsay Road (four kilometres north of Liston) is part of a four thousand acre cattle property set in picturesque rolling hills. The 12,000 established lavender plants form a pretty pattern whether in flower or not (great opportunity for photographs).

The well stocked gift shop and the tranquil bed and breakfast rooms are very popular. Bus groups and casual visitors are received in a friendly, family atmosphere for tea, coffee or pre ordered meals if required. Harvesting begins in early November. Open most days and bookings welcome. An informative talk can be given to larger groups on request if time permits.

Planting lavender began in 1998. In 2001 Peter and Tere planted six acres (12,000 plants) at Liston. The business is based on dried lavender and tourism. Harvesting by hand begins in early November and still provides sufficient oil for retail. The lavender produced is sold as product in the gift shop. Tere runs the retail outlet and the bed and breakfast while Peter runs the planting and maintenance of the lavender. The area is ideal for growing of Lavender with cold winters, well drained soil and hot summers with low humidity. There is a great deal of interest in the crop in Queensland and the general public take considerable trouble to visit the farm. The farm is only 12 minutes from Stanthorpe and 56 kilometres from both Warwick and Tenterfield. Visitors have a wide range of activities in the region from wineries to national parks with close proximity to the largest granite rock in Australia, Bald Rock.

A three hour drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast with several routes from which to choose, makes Aloomba Lavender an excellent destination.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
