The Summit is a small village just off the New England Highway on Granite Belt Drive. It has a General Store/Post Office and the highest railway station in Queensland. Take a drive along Granite Belt Drive which runs parallel with the highway from Dalveen in the north to Applethorpe in the south. The little farming villages, one of which is The Summit, form what is known as the 'The Fruit Run'. Along this route you will find farmhouses scattered among the orchards, a couple of wineries, fruit stalls and a lot of fruit storage sheds. In most cases, locally grown produce is available where farm gate signs identify producers who sell direct to the travelling public.
