We journey from Toowoomba to the Emu Heaven Farm where we take time for a cuppa. We then take a brief farm tour and listen to an engaging talk, providing a fascinating insight into the agricultural practices. Leaving the rustic charm of the farm behind, our journey continues through the scenic countryside of Beaudesert. As we weave through the heart of the countryside, we arrive at Albert River Wines, the culmination of our day’s adventure. The grand finalé awaits as we indulge in a leisurely three course long lunch. The culinary experience is a celebration of local flavours, expertly curated to tantalise your taste buds. From here we slowly make our way back to Brisbane Coach Terminal where our cultural short break away sadly ends
