This tiny town makes the claim of being served by the highest post office in Queensland. Just 7km from Stanthorpe in the Granite Belt, and 220km south-west of Brisbane, The Summit nestles in the mountain range which defines the border between New South Wales and Queensland. The scenery around this prolific apple-growing region is spectacular, indeed. Apart from apples, the Stanthorpe district produces pears, grapes, plums and peaches in abundance. It’s also one of the coolest parts of Queensland. Spring is a particularly good time to visit this area, when the fruit trees and wattle are in bloom. The Summit is handy to the Girraween and Boonoo Boonoo Falls National Parks. Both attract a constant flow of serious and recreational bush-walkers, while Bald Rock has assumed cultish status among people who like to claim that they have climbed the face of 'Australia's largest exposed-granite monolith.' For those who prefer gentler pursuits, the walk to the spectacular Boonoo Boonoo Falls is most rewarding.
