Amiens is one of the pretty districts in the Granite Belt region, 17 kilometres north-west of Stanthorpe.
These days the area is popular for orcharding, wine making and vegetable growing and was first settled by First World War servicemen who had been granted land for fruit growing after returning from war. The localities of Messines, Bapaume and Passchendaele are found within Amiens. All of these were named after battlegrounds on the Western Front.
Wineries of note in the area include Robert Channon Wines and Ravens Croft Wines.
