Amiens

With a name such as Amiens, it stands to reason that there would be links back to World War I. Quite a few villages along Amiens Road are named after the bloody Western Front battlefields. That is the case, but even though the name Amiens is French, the major ethnic group in the area are Italian. It was one of those soldier settlement areas, when the lads came home from the war they were offered miniscule blocks of land. A high failure rate resulted. Latter day winegrowers and orchardists have made up for that, with fruit orchards and wineries in the area. Whilst in the area it is possible to do a bit of fossicking in the old diggings. In order to do this you will need a licence. Stop off at Donnelly's Castle for a picnic where you will find a wood barbecue. Donnelly's Castle Lookout is atop a huge granite boulder.

Amiens: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Donnellys Castle


The original bushranger hideout for 'Thunderbolt' who roamed the New England Tableland.

Donnelly's Castle is a granite rock formation that you can walk between, around and over! The massive boulders are just as spectacular as some of the rock formations in Girraween National Park, and is far more accessible for young adventurers.

This rock formation, which you will find a short drive out of Stanthorpe near Pozieres, was named after Ned Donnelly, an early settler of the area. Now a crown recreation reserve, the area is maintained with picnic tables and barbecues. The site offers boulders to scramble over and hidden passageways to explore, as well as spectacular views of the surrounding area from the 200 metre walk to the top.

The Johnny Cash Country Music Festival


This event celebrates the fact that Johnny Cash and wife June Carter visited Stanthorpe regularly during the 1980s and 1990s. But not for music!

They came to visit an American friend of Johnny's, who had moved to Australia for family reasons related to his Australian wife. Johnny and June grew to love this small country town, its people and the district, hence their regular visits.

The Festival, to be staged on November 11, will feature one of Australia's leading Johnny Cash Tribute bands, supported by a line-up of three widely renowned Country and Rockabilly bands.

The Stanthorpe Showground venue is long experienced in major events, including the world famous Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Festival.

Pre-concert activities will be held in the town centre, and include a Best Dressed Man In Black competition, theme-related music, parades and much else in a family oriented day out.

The Festival's long-term objective is to become annual, doing for Stanthorpe what the Elvis Presley Festival has achieved for the small New South Wales town of Parkes, contributing hugely to the local economy.

They are confident they will achieve their objective as Johnny Cash remains massively popular to this day.
