Amiens

Amiens is one of the pretty districts in the Granite Belt region, 17 kilometres north-west of Stanthorpe.

These days the area is popular for orcharding, wine making and vegetable growing and was first settled by First World War servicemen who had been granted land for fruit growing after returning from war. The localities of Messines, Bapaume and Passchendaele are found within Amiens. All of these were named after battlegrounds on the Western Front.

Wineries of note in the area include Robert Channon Wines and Ravens Croft Wines.

Quart Pot Creek, Stanthorpe


The pretty Quart Pot Creek meanders through granite country and natural bushland, passes through the town of Stanthorpe, and continues out through the south-west, where it meets Spring Creek to form the Severn River. Granite outcrops are evident along the water course - and make good spots to sit or picnic. The creek banks have been attractively 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 tranquil picnic and barbecue areas along the way. Take time to walk alongside this beautiful creek, past water-worn granite boulders; take some bread to feed the ducks, watch for native birds, paddle at the water's edge or just relax under the shade of a tree.

Near the visitor information centre on the creek bank is Kidspace - a brass monkey-themed playground for families and a good spot to take a break.

Stanthorpe Soldiers Memorial


A white cottage-like pavilion, nestled in a rocky park, provides visitors with a chance to take in the panorama of Stanthorpe and remember the legacy left by men from this area in WWI.

Soldier hero Major General Sir William Glasgow officially opened this soldiers' memorial on 6 February 1926.

Slatted bench seating inside provides a place to ponder the impact a war on the other side of the world had on this farming community. Five WWI honour boards record the names in alphabetical order, without rank or honour, all are revered equally. Another is reserved for those who died, raised letters stating: 'To the memory of our gallant boys who fell in the world's war 1914-1919'. Further honour boards have been added, remembering later conflicts.

Warwick architects Dornbusch and Connolly designed the rest house which was built by local contractors NJ Thompson and Sons.

Many returned servicemen settled in this area under a soldiers' resettlement program. Towns around Stanthorpe echo the names of French conflicts: Amiens, Pozieres, Bullecourt and Fleurbaix. A neighbouring house, once owned by war heroes Sir Harry Chauvel and Major Alan Chauvel, uncles of film maker Charles Chauvel, also carries a name reflecting WWI, 'El Arish'.
