How can anyone find words to truly describe how beautiful this place is? From the tranquil surroundings to the playful sounds of the wildlife, we could not ask for a lovelier place to start our journey as husband and wife. - Paul & Kelly
Our unforgettable Holidays
We were lucky enough for it to rain on our wedding anniversary and the natural bubbling stream flowed past our cottage. The sound of the rain on the roof was great. Feeding the possums and turkeys was just lovely. Totally relaxing and we will recommend it to our friends and colleagues. Just wish we could have stayed longer than three nights. - Kris & Ken

Linda Garrett Reserve Circuit
The walk is through wet eucalypt forest and a palm grove along tracks and a boardwalk. It returns along a forest management trail. Car parking available on Delicia Rd.
Mapleton Falls & Wompoo Circuit – 1.3km
Superb lookout next to car park with wheelchair access, picnic area and 1.3km circuit. Spectacular views of waterfall and rainforest valley below. Listen for the Wompoo Fruit Dove calling from its treetop feeding sights.
Gardner’s Falls – 1km
Drive to the car park on the banks of the Obi Obi Creek – a short level walk down stream to the falls. A popular picnic spot and a large pool at the base of the falls.
Mary Cairncross Park – 1.2km to 1.75km
One of the best remnants of subtropical rainforest in Australia with amazing views across to the Glasshouse Mountains and an excellent education centre. The park has some very large trees that attract a rich variety of birds. Many rare and threatened tree species flourish in this park and the endangered Coxen’s Fig Parrot and Richmond Birdwing Butterfly have been seen.
Hinterland Great Walk
The start of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk. This 58km walk crosses the Maleny-Mapleton plateau and the Blackall Range. Towering Bunya Pines, rushing waterfalls and rugged, scarred landscapes are some of the natural wonders to be discovered. There are a number of walks from 2 to 7 hours.
Most walks are not a circuit, so you may need to arrange “drop-off” and “pick-up”. Sections of the Hinterland Great Walk are remote and isolated – be well prepared.
Kondalilla Falls Walks – 2.4km to 4.6km
From the car park to the picnic area and toilets is a steep concrete path – not wheelchair-friendly. The walk to the top of the falls, the Picnic Creek Circuit, is 2.4km. Allow 45 minutes as the steps back up are quite steep. There is a natural pool and lush vegetation. The Kondalilla Falls Circuit descends to the valley below and up the other side. Allow 1 hour as the return track is strenuous.
