Accommodation in Stanthorpe for the Italian Motor Rally

Aloomba Lavender B & B
Your hosts are Peter and Tere Bonner who like to treat their guests as they would their own friends. The farm is part of a 4,000 acre cattle property, so as it is a working farm, there are some associated activities and Peter is happy to talk cattle and machinery or football and cricket, while Tere would prefer to discuss craft and books. The area is quiet, tranquil and serene – only the sound of the birds...
