Our micro-region features on national television
THE Darling Downs has featured on Queensland Weekender, showing the rest of the nation a snippet of what our region has to offer.
The Channel 7 program focuses on Toowoomba's north, with special attention to Ravensbourne and Hampton.
It opens up with a look at Ravensbourne Escape which is the perfect winter getaway, featuring 11 luxury chalets and studios.
It's described as a place to have a serene, quiet break away with someone you care about.
Presenter Liz Cantor then heads to The Woods Café which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.
However it appears the main feature of the program is the High Country Hamlets brochure.
It has everything visitors need for their getaway.
There are accommodation options, restaurants, cafes and farms, such as Emeradue and Macbeth Farm, where people can stop in and try the fresh produce.
"It lays out all the best places to stay, eat, shop and play in this gorgeous high-altitude micro-region," Ms Cantor said.
Amanda Hinds from Emeraude was one of the brains behind the brochure and said it was handy for people visiting the area.
"The inspiration behind the High Country Hamlets is just this sensational area and the number of passionate people who live here," she said.
"It's a quick, cheap getaway. You can come up here for a day or a couple of days, and this time of year is just spectacular if you are looking for a real winter experience."
The last stop for Ms Cantor was the Crows Nest Soft Drinks factory which was established in 1903.
While the double sarsaparilla is the most popular flavour, a new flavour is in the works which incorporates rhubarb.
