The Laws of Attraction The Laws of Attraction There’s a lot to be said about the laws of attraction. Have you ever felt yourself irresistibly drawn to something with an urge so strong that it’s almost impossible to think about something else? A magnetic force that compels you to drive all of your energies into one direction and, to make matters worse,  it’s not even something you do entirely consciously. Discuss
Stanthorpe Cheese @ “The Granite Belt Dairy” Clever, clever, clever – that’s the best way to describe this charming setup at Thulimbah on the Northern side of the Granite Belt. If cheese is your thing then you HAVE to set some serious time aside to visit Stanthorpe’s very own dairy. I absolutely cherish this place. Discuss
She'll be Apples Attention!! The Granite Belt is open for business during the week and ready to provide travellers with the most incredible array of experiences, if you can spare the time. Those who can escape the grind during the week will be rewarded with close to VIP status as they travel through the region. Discuss
Stanthorpe Rocks This November the Granite Belt will be set to rock its heart out all over again. If you're like me and grew up listening to the Rock music of the 80's you won't believe your ears when you hear the line up for the 2014 concert. So many of the songs from this era have been drummed into my subconscious - like Leo Sayer's "I Love you more than I can say". Discuss
Can it rain now? Can it rain now? At Diamondvale we always try really hard to please our guests. We want you to feel like VIP’s, nothing is too much trouble. So when a wedding celebration is looming, you can just imagine the amount of primping and preparation that goes on. But there is one thing you can never count on….the weather. Discuss 1
Spring in Full Swing Spring in Full Swing What’s in store when you visit our charming Stanthorpe cottages this Spring? Well, it turns out I didn’t kill the roses and, as promised by my thoughtful pruning guide, they look like they are flourishing. Spring is here with a vengeance. Discuss
Let's Hope I Can't Kill Roses Too! Let's Hope I Can't Kill Roses Too! Roses are notoriously difficult to kill, or at least that’s what they tell me. I CERTAINLY HOPE SO!   After feeling bolstered by a guests’ knowledge of the rose garden, a member of the Queensland Rose Society no less, I felt an unbridled sense of longing to “stick it to the roses”.

Something About Nothing Something About Nothing Although it’s hard to believe, there really is something about nothing. Being quite a hyperactive person I have never really believed in nothing, that stillness that might exist in the nothingness, or that nothing might actually be …..something. Twice this week I have watched shows on TV literally about nothing! Discuss
