September, one of our favourite months as it signals the start of stone fruit season! A weekend in the Granite Belts beautiful Stanthorpe and a quick trip through the South Burnett Region proved Kumbia’s harvest is not far away!
Nicoletti Saves the Day
With power outages in Stanthorpe due to the bushfires we were completely out of luck for dinner options! The Nicoletti family saved the day cooking us delicious pasta on a 2 burner camp cook top. An update on their crop have our mouths watering for the Nicoletti apple taste! Fun fact, they also grow white peaches and yellow centred plums and have grown a substantial amount of stone fruit in the past!
Only 10 minutes from the centre of Stanthorpe is Vivien and Stuart’s delightful bed and breakfast. With a real ‘home away from home’ feel, Pinnacle Lodge boasts gorgeous rooms and interesting antiques and collectables. The entertainment room is perfect for kids and adults and there’s a range of animals to be hand fed as well.
