While not big on wineries, Childers is big on flavour and you’ll find four innovative winemakers around this charming country town. Grab a car, take a day and travel along the Childers Wine Trail which measures some 20km long.
This journey starts at the southern end of Childers at Hill of Promise Winery where the winemakers offer a first-hand “grape to glass” experience.
Your second stop on this discovery tour is Ohana Winery and Exotic Fruits, at Doolbi. Not only can you enjoy tasting the liqueurs made on site from strawberry, hibiscus and pineapple, but exotic fruits such as jaboticaba.
Brierley Wines is just off the Bruce Highway and along a sandstone ridge with views of Kullogum State Forest.
Finish at the French-inspired Vintners Secret Vineyard.
