Massage isn’t the only reason to visit Stanthorpe although it’s great idea to add a luxurious and healing Ancient Hawaiian Temple Massage (aka Ka Huna Lomi Lomi) to your itinerary for a bit of pampering during your stay. Stanthorpe is located on the New England Highway approximately 3 hours inland from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. I’m always telling people why they must visit Stanthorpe, it really is very beautiful grape growing countryside with stunning granite scenery. I’ve become my own little travel agent but the problem is I’m always privately messaging my friends and clients with the same info over and over again. Then suddenly I had a light bulb moment. Why not blog about it, then next time someone asks I can simply point them to my website and the relevant blog. Brilliant! Can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner. So here we go, my top 5 reasons to visit Stanthorpe which all go hand in hand with giving yourself the gift of massage.
1) Over 50 Wineries and Vineyards
Outstanding boutique wineries. Some fabulous wines are coming from our Granite Belt Wine Region. You can drive yourself around or consider an organised wine tour, which is probably a better idea. Some of my favourite wineries are Ballandean Estate, Golden Grove, Symphony Hill, Jester Hill, Boireann Winery, Moonrise Estate, Ravenscroft Wines and my nearest neighbours Rumbalara. These are just some that I’ve actually tasted. There are still loads I haven’t even visited. Some of the wineries are available for weddings and are the perfect picturesqe spot for your wedding photos, or you can stay at some of them for example Ridgemill Estate Winery where your view is across the vineyards. Just below I’ve placed links to some of the wine tour operators. Give them a call and book yourself in.
2) Quaint, Quirky, Stylish, & Cosy Accommodation
Delightful Stanthorpe really does have it all. One minute you could feel like you are stepping back in time huddled around a fire in a cosy cottage, next minute you are soaking up the spa, champagne glass in hand looking out over fields or up at a starry night sky. Whatever you are looking for in regards to accommodation you will find it here. All budgets are catered for. You can even stay at some wineries and vineyards. There are plently of B&B’s and actually you can probably make your bookings at Airbnb.
3) Glorious National Parks
I just recently climbed up the Pyramids at Girraween National Park with my friend Antoine. There are many walks at Girraween that I still haven’t done. I can also highly recommend a visit to Bald Rock National Park and also Boonoo Boonoo National Park.
4) Hawaiian Massage (aka Ka Huna Massage or Lomi Lomi)
After all that climbing and walking around you will definitely be ready for a massage. At Mind Body Synergy we specialise in Hawaiian healing philosophy and bodywork. Whether or not you visit us at our massage studio on town or if we come to you at your accommodation, we aim to offer a high end luxury massage experience.
Our signature massage is the Ka Huna Lomi Lomi Massage. This type of body work is a unique, flowing and energetically vibrant, yet deeply relaxing massage style. Your practitioner uses their hands and forearms in long fluid strokes of varying rhythm and intensity, up and down and all around the whole body. You feel touched inside and out.
