Events such as the Dirranbandi Family Fishing Classic, the annual St George Family Fishing Competition, and the Yellow Belly Country Music Festival will keep the family entertained, and you can learn more about the local cotton and grape industry by joining a Cotton Farm and Winery Tour in St George.
You’ll have a whole new appreciation for the humble emu egg when you see it carved into a stunning, illuminated piece of art at The Unique Egg in St George. Local character and artisan Steve Margaritus – or “Stavros” as we know him, hand carves an amazing variety of patterns and scenes on each egg.
St George has tree lined streets where you’ll find great coffee, gourmet delis and quality pub food. And don’t miss a visit to the most westerly winery in Queensland while you’re here – Riversands Wines, where you can while away the afternoon with a free personalised wine tasting at the cellar door followed by scones and homemade jam or a cheese platter and a glass of wine in their country garden.
