Just spent an amazing few days staying here and exploring the walls and wineries of the Granite Belt. This is a Queensland treasure….amazing wines, fabulous accommodation, first class national park walks and wonderful knowledgeable people….this is a must do in Queensland

"Amazing Atmosphere"

Louise M - Tripadvisor 2021

Our Ridgemill stay was excellent. The staff are super friendly and accommodating, the cabins are perfect, and the atmosphere is super relaxed. The wine is also delicious. We really can't wait to come back.

"Piece of Paradise"

Pip - Tripadvisor 2021

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. What a beautiful little winery, staff were awesome, wines superb, lovely atmosphere. We had the added bonus of Ninja the ginger/white cat stay with us when we were in the cabin. Fire instructions was a good idea, my only fault was a heater lacking in the bathroom. It was freezing. I want to come back next year 11/10
