    A review about Montville, Sunshine Coast Hinterland, AUSTRALIA

    We had been told it was a beautiful place....we had been told the food was nice...we had been told there were wood carvings to die for....that there were stunning views but nothing prepared us for the sheer beauty of Secrets. Its name is actually 'Secrets on the Lake'and it really should be a secret no more.....

    You really have to experience it for yourself. We had been told but........

    So what else is there that has been kept a secret?
    Well there is the cafe ...the art gallery....the tree houses...the gifts....the wood fire.....the stunning lounge.... the billiard table....and a very friendly welcome when you arrive....and if you are getting married this is the place for you.

    I do not usually divide my reviews but in this case it is worth it....

    The photos show the surrounds

    So go now to the part of the secret that is The Lake Cafe.

    Kondalilla Falls

    Kondalilla Falls (top falls)
    2 more images

    The falls are a result of the Skene Creek falling 90m and the Aboriginal name translated means 'rushing waters'.

    There are two parts of the falls with the most visited being the top section where the swimming hole is. This location is very popular in summer. The edge of the waterhole is undercut in most places so there is no easing into the cold mountain water.

    Wine tasting anyone?

    At the back of Montville along Western Avenue is a winery called Flame Hill. It is a family owned vineyard and produces estate grown wines. Some grape varieties are grown on site and others at family owned vineyards in other parts of South East Quensland especially Stanthorpe.

    You can taste three wines - three red or three white - for free; for a small fee of $6 you may upgrade to 8 - three white, three red, and a dessert wine and a port. For $20 you may taste the whole range.

    There is a good selection so I'm sure you will find something to tempt you.

    Looking east from Blackall Range
    1 more image

    The Blackall Range runs behind the Sunshine Coast parallel to the ocean. Starting with Maleny in the south a road travels along the ridge, linking Montville, Flaxton and Mapleton and showing spectacular views over the Sunshine Coast.

    A drive up the range is a very popular outing for residents and tourist alike.

    Activities are varied. There are three main parks with walking tracks through subtropical rainforest and sclerophyll forest - Mary Cairncross Park, Kondalilla National Park and Mapleton Falls National Park.

    Shops, galleries and restaurants can be found in all of the range town and there are wineries at Maleny and Montville. There are also many Bed & Breakfasts and small hotel accommodation. There is even a reception centre on the east side of the range which caters mainly for weddings and offers amazing views.

    On the western side of the range are the towns of Kenilworth and Connondale. This is rich dairy country and Kenilworth is famous for its cheese.

    Along with the Bunya Mountains the Blackall Range isthe only are where the Bunya Pine is found naturally. The area was first established by timber getters after the Red Cedar which grows in the rainforest.

    KONDALILLA FALLS- *1*

    by balhannah Updated Apr 15, 2010

    Something has happened to his tail, should be long
    1 more image

    Coming down Kondalilla Falls road, we passed many Car’s parked on the side of the road of this popular National park. The car park here is usually full to overflowing.

    I walked down the track to a large grassed picnic area which had Toilets, BBQ’s, Picnic tables & chairs, Playground and even some Wildlife! A Goanna [lace moniter] was hanging around, they love meat!

    I decided to do the 4.6km circuit walk, which took me past 3 sets of waterfalls.
    The track at the start is good and fairly easy going, walking through Eucalypt forest. It wasn’t long before I was at the 1st waterfall, a rather pretty one flowing pretty well. A bridge led my way across it, then up some steps, and more easy walking to a lookout with extensive views over the mountains to a valley in the distance.

    The walk then descended down some steps, and started zig-zagging down the mountain to where the path divided, one going to Kondalilla falls, and one to the Rock Pools.
    If you are not real fit, at least walk to this 1st waterfall, it is easy going!

    Kondalilla falls from a distance
    4 more images

    As I was doing the 4.6km circuit, I followed the trail down the Mountain. From here, the path deteriorates from a good path to a narrow track, with lots and lots of steps and plenty of zig –zag path to the bottom.

    On the way down, there were some excellent views of the Kondalilla Falls. These were beautiful, very long drop falls, I could only get the full length of them in a photo taken from quite a distance. The track takes you to the bottom of the falls, no hope of getting all of them in the photo from here.
    The track to this area you need to be very careful with, it is rocky, slippery and there are tree roots.
    It is well worth the walk to here.

    Fun behind the waterfall at the rock pool
    4 more images

    After enjoying my view of the falls, it was time to climb to the top of the Mountain. I could hear the water running, and knew I was near the waterfall.

    The track came out at the top of the waterfall where Grass Trees were growing, completely different to the Rainforest on the other side.

    Located here was a pretty deep rock pool, popular with people swimming and jumping in. From here, the water runs in a small stream and over the long drop cliff face. Another Goanna was here having a drink, just beside the bridge that you walk across the top of the falls.

    I imagine that on a really hot day this would be full of people enjoying themselves

    At the start, my walk was through open Eucalypt forest. Some of the Trees were different, I took a photo of some with a very rusty red brown trunk. As I headed further down the Mountain, then it changed to Rainforest with lots of Palm Trees. It was interesting that there was a creeper clinging to the Palm Trees that made them look like a different kind of Palm. This is the only area I have ever seen this creeper.

    Coming out of the Rainforest on climbing the mountain to the top, the scene was different again! This time Australian Grass trees!

    Another important tip is the way you walk the track. If you head to the WATERFALL 1st, then you are WALKING DOWN A LOT OF STEPS, and walking up the other side of the mountain is much easier as there are NO STEPS.
    THIS IS THE WAY TO GO, FINISH AT THE ROCK POOL LAST.
