Hinterland Scenic Drives

Escape for a day by taking a scenic 50-minute drive up into the lushness and greenery of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Marvel at the spectacular views of the ancient volcanic peaks of the Glass House Mountains, walk through the lush rainforests and take in the breathtaking views in and around Mary Cairncross Park.

Pack a picnic with delicious local goodies and discover the picturesque Kondalilla, Mapleton and Gardner’s Falls. Scenic lookouts appear seemingly at every turn. Rising up over 500 metres you can see even as far as Bribie and Moreton Islands just off the coast.

Prefer a little pampering? Enjoy true hospitality at charming and elegant cafés or award-winning restaurants with postcard-perfect views. Along the way, visit the charming townships of Maleny and Montville surround by lush green farmlands and rich with skilled artisans. Explore the unique shops and discover the thriving art trail with unique galleries and studios showcasing local artists and their original works.
