This gorgeous 100-acre property is the perfect spot to take a leisurely stroll through the vineyards before picking up a glass to sip the Estate’s hand-grown and hand-crafted wines, which are sure to suit all palates.
The Estate grows four varieties of grape, including Viognier, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Ruby Cabernet, with additional varieties such as Verdelho and Merlot sourced from the South Burnett region.

To help you make the most of your visit, Ocean View Estates also have three cottages where you can rest your head for a night or two.
Being on a winery, the cottages all have delightful names, such as the one-bedroom Cabernet Cottage, the two-bedroom Shiraz Cottage, as well as the five-bedroom Winemakers Cottage.
Each cottage is designed to give you a comfy home-away-from-home experience, as well as a hint of luxury and opulence.
Imagine sinking into the outdoor bath and spa with a glass of red at the Cabernet Cottage, curling up beside a roaring fire with a good book in the Shiraz Cottage, or enjoying lunch from the dining table overlooking the vineyards in the Winemakers Cottage.
