Ballandean - Cities, Towns and Localities
Ballandean is a small village west of Girraween National Park with some wonderful wineries to visit and experience the unique blends from this high altitude region of Queensland.

Queensland's oldest winery the Ballandean Estate is located here established as a commercial enterprise in 1968 by Angelo and Mary Puglisi. Angelo's father and grandfather have a proud tradition of growing wine on the property since the early 1930's.

Winemaking is a growing industry in this part of southern Queensland and is helping to promote this granite belt area to the hordes of tourists that visit the Gold Coast region each year.

Ballandean Attractions

Ballandean Estate
• In November, Ballandean Estate was officially inducted into the Queensland Tourism ‘Hall of Fame’. The honour was given to Ballandean Estate after 3 successive wins of Best Queensland Winery at the Queensland Tourism Awards. Ballandean has actually won 5 out of 6 years and is the first winery to enter the Hall of Fame. The award is reward to the Puglisi Family and their staff for their dedication to tourism in the Granite Belt.
Girraween National Park
• ‘Place of Flowers’ is a magnificent park located on the Queensland/New South Wales border just south of Stanthorpe. Each spring the park explodes with wild flower blooms amongst huge granite outcrops millions of years old, many of them in precarious positions having weathered that way over millennia. Some of the wildflowers you can experience in the spring are purple, yellow and red pea flowers, orchids, flannel flowers all set amongst golden wattles, stringy bark eucalypts, red gum and black butt trees.
