With so many of our travelling friends having a rough start to 2022, we thought we'd help lessen the load and ensure your trip to the St George region this year is a memorable one.

The first 500 travellers from outside the region to visit the St George Visitor Information Centre this year and say the phrase, “I’ll be your mate”, will receive a special Welcome Mate Explorer Pack. Packs include a $20 Buy Balonne Gift Card, exclusive discount vouchers, local merchandise and regional information.

Major events for 2022 include Easter in the Vines, Yellowbelly Country Music Festival, River Dragon Festival and Thallon Team Truck Pull held in the shadow of the town’s epic painted silos.

Our region’s seven towns of St George, Dirranbandi, Bollon, Hebel, Thallon, Nindigully and Mungindi are throwing out the welcome mat and are ready to welcome you.

Expect a warm country welcome from the light-hearted locals who want to share their wide-open spaces and quirky places which include some of Australia’s most iconic country pubs. From river cruising to thermal spas and whether you want five-star or a million stars, you’ll find it here.

For the holiday of a lifetime hit the road to the St George region where everyone is ready to say, “Welcome mate”.
