Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve – Kicking off our day you’ll immerse yourself in 55 hectares of subtropical rainforest which overlooks the beautiful Glass House Mountains. This is truly a one of a kind location and never fails to impress.

Maleny – Here, you’ll have time to stroll down a superb little country high street, rich with character and full of charm.

Gardners Falls – A local favourite, it’s nothing short of breathtaking and will give you an opportunity for a dip under a fantastic waterfall bursting with colour and life.

Gerrards Lookout – A short stop here to take in the breathtaking views that the Sunshine Coast Hinterland has to offer.

Montville – Arguably the jewel of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Montville is a stunning location with many attractions sure to please any visitor.
