This article presents information related to the vineyards in Australia. The wine map of Australia changes monthly and the vineyards are replacing other agricultural crops throughout the land. There's a wine trail on the Sunshine Coast that is well worth exploring. Glastonbury's 10ha of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, shiraz and chardonnay are on the foothills of the Great Divide, 12km south of Gympie. In the Noosa hinterland at Kenilworth, two vineyards nestle on the slopes of a hidden valley, and further south, Maleny Mountain Wines at Maleny and Settlers Rise at Montville are worth a visit. A Wine Trail map is available at Sunshine Coast wineries and tourist information offices.
