Plainland, a vibrant community located just 45 minutes west of Brisbane on the Warrego Highway, is more than just a pit stop for travelers—it's a lively destination teeming with character. Here, you can explore a variety of specialty retail outlets, indulge in the offerings of major food chains, soak in the atmosphere of a charming historic hotel, and discover the renowned Schulte's Gourmet Market. Although the land may have once been dedicated to grazing, today Plainland has evolved into a dynamic blend of thriving businesses, commercial ventures, and welcoming residential areas. For a taste of local culture, be sure not to miss the markets held next to the family-owned Porters Plainland Hotel every third Sunday of the month. This hotel, an iconic establishment since its opening in 1914, offers more than just a place to stay—it's a hub of hospitality, conferences, and motel accommodation. You can relish delectable meals and enjoy live music on the deck while savoring dishes that range from gourmet burgers and fresh salads to seafood, pasta, and char-grilled steaks, all crafted with the finest locally sourced seasonal produce. For those with a passion for premium meats, Schulte's Gourmet Market in Plainland is a family-owned and operated gem with a storied history dating back to 1952. Here, you'll uncover a selection of the highest quality fresh red meat, pork, and lamb products. The delicatessen is a treasure trove of Schulte's gluten-free small goods, including their world-famous Mettwurst, along with an array of local and imported cheeses and European and local continental dry goods. But the culinary journey doesn't stop there. You can also peruse a vibrant array of fresh fruits and vegetables sourced from daily local markets, each bursting with freshness and flavour. And to add an extra layer of uniqueness to your shopping experience, Schulte's offers wine tasting from the award-winning Preston Peak Wines, turning your visit into a one-stop voyage of delightful discovery.
