Why you should visit Quart Pot Creek, Stanthorpe

The beautiful Quart Pot Creek flows through granite country and natural bushland, and winds through the town of Stanthorpe, with population of around 4500 residents, and continues out through the south-west, where it meets Spring Creek to form the Severn River.

The creek is home to many rare plants and animals, including kangaroos and koalas, and is popular for swimming, fishing, picnicking, canoeing, walking and bird watching.

Granite outcrops are everywhere along the water course, and they make great places to sit or picnic.

The creek bank has been landscaped by the local council to include five kilometres of walking and cycling tracks, linking one end of town to the Red Bridge.

You’ll find beautiful natural settings along the way, with picnicking and barbecuing areas.

Time to spend in nature is a luxury that most of us don’t have enough of. Walk alongside this creek as you make your way through it, stop to feed the ducks and watch native birds, and take a rest under a tree.

The visitor information centre on the creek bank has a play area called Kidspace for kids and families. It’s a perfect place to take a break.

Stanthorpe and it’s surrounding area offers something for everyone, from young kids through to adults, and is the perfect location to unwind and take in the natural beauty of one of Queensland’s most picturesque locations.
