Sunshine Coast Hinterland lies inland from the South coast of Queensland, Australia and is made up of the spectacular Blackall Ranges and several National Parks. There are plenty of pretty towns set within the mountainous ranges offering a quaint and relaxing feel. At Landsborough, along the Glass House Mountains Road you can turn off towards Maleny which offers a number of wonderful art galleries and as well as some beautiful accommodation places. There is a pleasant drive to Mapleton, passing the wonderful Kondalilla National Park hosting the amazing Kondalilla Falls and Mapleton Falls National Park, as well as the small craft town of Montville.

The rainforest and waterfalls within the National Parks are truly remarkable, and well worth walking around. Also popular in the area is the Maleny Folk Festival, held during the 5 days before New Years Eve. Back on the Glass House Mountains Road is the areas centre Nambour, with the Big Pineapple nearby.

North again is Eumundi which was where Eumundi Lager used to be brewed. Eumundi offers several art and craft galleries ranging from Aboriginal Art to Contemporary Art to Glass Blowing. Eumundi also hosts a popular craft market on Saturdays and Wednesdays, which attracts people from all over. Further inland is the South Burnett Region, and the wonderful Bunya Mountains National Park. There is a sealed road through the region from Dalby or Kingaroy, and offer spectacular rainforest, waterfalls and wildlife, including plenty of wallabies.

  1. Such a lush place!
    Thanks for sharing these photos at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/07/world-war-ii-memorial-washington-dc.html

  2. So beautiful .. it all looks minimally touched by mans destructive hand. Even the farms seem like they would be organic (hopefully). I was struck to see Palm trees in among everything ... interesting :) Sounds like a wonderful place to travel ... I may have to add it to my bucket list. Thank you, Nick ...
