Dusty Joe’s tourist accommodation

Dusty Hill Vineyard in the South Burnett region is expanding with new accommodation options and a boutique brewery and distillery for guests to enjoy.

Project overview

We’re supporting Dusty Joe’s with a $2.25 million investment to build 20 units of accommodation ranging from one to four bedroom.

The new infrastructure will include a boutique brewery and distillery to complement existing wine tourism and incorporate health and wellbeing offerings.

The new accommodation will enable the South Burnett region to have the capacity to service larger group tourism markets including conference, events and retreats with the point of difference being Queensland country lifestyle experiences.
