Gardner's Falls, Maleny, Queensland...photo courtesy web-site
A lovely little spot to picnic or swim is found on the outskirts of Maleny. Great for families as there is a more shallow place to swim near to the entry or more depth up near the large water fall.
You will love the clear bubbling stream found amongst shady trees. Great for a picnic, a swim, or a long relaxing walk.
The Great Walk starts here or you can enjoy a shorter stroll.
Just before you turn in to Gardner's Lane there is a restaurant and cabins as well.

From Maleny to Landsborough, Queensland. Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
So if you are staying in Maleny in one of the delightful 'hidden away' spots you might feel like a visit to another little country town just down the road a piece.
Of course from Landsborough you can drive on to Australia Zoo or Caloundra...or wherever...plenty of choice.
But I am wondering if you would enjoy a detour through Mt Mellum. You can make a round trip by taking the road nearer Maleny and leaving by the lower road closer to Landsborough.
There actually is a caravan park there which is pet friendly...good to know.

Maple Streey, Maleny, Queensland.
Maple street is a pleasant street ...wide and still lined with trees in many places.
From the moment you drive into the town itself...the pub on your right and a park on your left (coming from the Coast side) you will be drawn to look at the shops in Maple Street. (Do not bother with the supermarket that interfered with the platypus population)
To be honest I believe Maleny has lost some of its better shops over the last few years but there are still some delights.
Heaps of places to eat... The Upfront Club, Cappriccio's Italian Restaurant....Colin James Fine Food, Maleny (ice cream and cheeses) to name a few.
Rosetta Books...where you can browse and a dress shop...some hippy clothes and some not.
A pleasant afternoon and especially on a Sunday you could move on to Finbarsfor a pizza and Irish Music.

Conondale, Queensland. 26K from Maleny about 1 1/2 hours drive north of Brisbane..
It is quite a place! 650 acres of bushland.....
It is a few years since we made the trip to Crystal Waters but I have living evidence of our journey growing in our garden.
Our most excing find was Taro...a special Taro grown for the leaves... not the usual one where you grow mainly for the corm.
We cook the leaves...the NEW ones lightly...something as you would cook spinach.
Wealso brought home 2 other plants for eating and Stevia for a sweetener.....
And these days there is a market on the 1st Saturday of the month. For 2012 it will begin in February.
And they are on Facebook
Have a look here if you want to know about the services available such as Feng Shui, Wildlife Management, Violin Tuition. Unbelievable what is on offer....
Accommodation is available. There is an Eco Caravan Park, B&B's, and Retreats...some private inhabitants may be involved with backpackers.
If you want to visit it is suggested you need to book a guided tour.

We have visited this gallery several times, each time there is different work to see. What we liked the best, and was unusual, was the work made out of old car & motorbike parks, exceptionally well done by a James Corbett.
The piece I liked the best, was the Gorilla (see photo) he looked so life like. He had just been sold and was waiting to be shipped to America, where he was going to be a talking piece in the foyer of a business. I'm sure he would be that! In the racing car photo, there is a driver leaning over to get around the corner!
So much detail in these pieces.

Yes Maleny has a pub...all of these little towns do...and each pub has its charms. This one is said to be the hub of Maleny. There is a Garden Restaurant ...entertaiment...and very pleasant surrounds.
You are close to everything at the pub...just a short walk up the road to the shops, the library, and lots of alternative eating places.

This is a great activity for all ages offered by many lawn bowls clubs in Australia. It is good for their revenue and bare feet don't hurt the greens.
Most clubs also cater for groups providing buffets or BBQ meals. Also being clubs alcoholic drinks are cheaper than pubs.
Maleny Bowls Club provided a fantastic late BBQ breakfast for about 50 of us after my niece's wedding in 2010. After the meal the club members who did the cooking then became our teachers for the bowling. They stayed with us the whole morning and were enthusiastic in helping us have fun.
Even though lawn bowls is losing its tag of an older persons game the guys were really keen to drum up new members for the club. What a shame all of us were from out of town.

Glass House Mountains National Park has an area of 2,117 hectares and starts about 70 km north of Brisbane. It is a flat plain featuring cores of extinct volcanoes, the outer rock having been eroded away. The park was established in 1994 and extended in 2010.
The Glass House Mountains were named by Captain James Cook in 1770 as he sailed up the coast. The mountains can be seen from quite a distance out to sea and the shapes reminded him of glass kilns.
The highest peak is Beerwah at 555m, while the most recognisable are Coonowrin (or Crookneck) 377m and Tibrogargan 364m (also 2nd & 3rd highest)
Walking tracks allow access to the summit of some of the peaks but you need to check with the National Parks on accessibility. Climbing the mountains can be extremely dangerous and many people have had to be rescued. There have also been fatalities.
The park covers a diverse range of habitiats from heath to open forest with some rainforest patches.
The Glass House Mountains are best viewed from Mary Cairncross Park - Maleny
