Reviews of Stanthorpe, QLD

Editors Choice

"Relaxing Lifestyle with Wineries at your front door"

I have lived at Glen Aplin where you will find many excellent wineries within a 3 or 4 minutes drive. There are also a couple of fine restaurants close by. Glen Aplin is peaceful yet very convenient to the town centre of Stanthorpe - only a 10 minute drive away. The views to the mountains are fantastic and gorgeous sunsets are plentiful. The town of Stanthorpe caters for most of your needs and boasts a great market one Sunday in the month. Along with all the festivals throughout the year and the year 'round availability of fine wines, cheeses, olives, etc - you'd find Stanthorpe and it's surrounds are hard place to beat for a relaxed, friendly and peaceful lifestyle.

"Expensive, high crime and a town of the past"

I could go into the usual high council rates, high crime rate and lower income demographic but the town speaks for itself. Southern Downs Region is poorly managed by a Council and Councillors who have conflict of interest and in most large business/organisations.
Stanthorpe is becoming a town of the past with a decline in Tourism and nothing to offer - unless you are a fan of the quintessential wine and cheese in a run down bed and breakfast fun whilst watching the lower income demographic do burnouts down the main streets in town.

What crime problems are in Stanthorpe? Genuine questions here, no trolling. Did you move here from Brisbane? How much are the average residental rates for a 3 bedroom home? Thanks.

Average rates for a 3 bedroom home are between $3500-$4000 per year. On top of that you have water charges (seperate bill) depending on usage around $1200 per year.

"A nice town let down by Council and expensive rates"

Stanthorpe is a nice enough town unfortunately located with in the Southern Downs Council municipality. The town is clean enough and worth a short visit but not idea for families or activities. We recently moved to Stanthorpe but have made the decision to move away due to the increasing expense - primarily due to the local council. As another mentioned rates are very expensive for even a small house/land and the local service/infrastructure is lacking.

"Useless Council - high rates - expensive"

Stanthorpe in Queensland is horrible made that way by a useless Southern Downs Regional Council. The rates for both residential property and commercial are very high.
Parks are never mown, water charges are very high and there is nothing for kids to do.
Stanthorpe may seem like a nice cold town, especially during Summer but it's cold and dreary during winter and very hot during summer.

"Cold and beatiful"

Lovely country town located away and high above the sea, breathing in clean country mountain air. Beautiful countryside similar to Armidale very green and hilly featuring open country and bushland, nice homes, friendly people and relaxed atmosphere are all a big part of Stanthorpe.

My favourite part of Stanthorpe is the unique climate, Freezing winters with frost and some with a fall of snow(different from the rest of Queenslands climate). All seasons are quiet unique here, whilst autumn brings all the bright colours into life, summers are mild and comfortable and spring being a mixture of all seasons.

I personally think this country city is a great place to live or to visit, overall its one of the best parts of Queensland Australia(in my opinion), excaping the heat and enjoying an alternative lifestyle.

Great for

  • Friendly locals and lovely green surrounding countryside
  • Unique Climate(due to its elevation)
  • Relaxed atmosphere and great shops.

Not great for

  • Low to average property value
  • Fairbit of rain (especially summer)
  • Not a whole lot of work for the individuals

"Stanthorpe - Interesting Granite Belt town."

Stanthorpe is located in the granite belt south west of Brisbane and at 1000m above sea level has been called one of the coolest places in Queensland. Because of these cool conditions Stanthorpe has an excellent wine industry with many wineries to visit and sample some fine wines. Many other stone fruits not normally associated with QLD are grown here such as apricots and peaches. Stanthorpe offers good accommodation and has excellent shopping facilities. The town is surrounded by national parks offering good bushwalking with plenty of opportunities to see some amazing flora and fauna. Home prices vary in the area with some good starter homes still available.
