Riversands Wines - A bush story in every glass! Riversands Vineyards in St George is the perfect spot to enjoy a blend of country hospitality with a free wine tasting in a cosy cellar. Their personalised wine tastings will take your taste buds through the flavours of Western Queensland as you sip crisp dry whites and popular reds through to the rich flavours of their famous Golden Liqueur Muscat. How about a sip of port from a Senators boot? The unique pottery gift range is their specialty. Tawny port filled pottery replicas such as the Condamine Bell, Senator Barnaby's Boots, Quart Pot and Fred Brophy's Boxing boots feature in their range. Be sure to try the handmade grape jam and chutney while you visit! A family friendly venue located amongst the vines adds to the ambience of their outdoor garden cafe. Treat yourself to scones with jam and cream, mud cake, hot coffee or perhaps a cheese platter and glass of wine- and create your own bush story in every glass!
Car weary legs will appreciate the two-kilometre stretch of shady riverbank walkway flanking St George. A star feature, the river walk begins below the Jack Taylor Weir. There you'll find a commemorative stone to mark Major Thomas Mitchell's crossing of the Balonne River on St George's Day back in 1846. Further along the river walk, a marker showcases the flood heights of the swollen Balonne River from years gone by. A fighter pilot war memorial pays tribute to two men hailing from St George. One of these men, Leonard Waters, was the first aboriginal fighter pilot in the Royal Australian Air Force.
