    The pub

    If you are staying in Nambour it is very easy for you to drive up to Mapleton and enjoy the stunning views. There is a great little pub on the corner of Obi Obi Road and the Mapleton Flaxton Road...oh well it is actually called a' tavern' these days.

    Meals are fine...for a pub...little bit greasy spoon. But you can buy a Guinness to wash it all down especially if you have some Irish roots.

    The tavern is open
    Monday-Saturday 10am-10pm
    Sunday 11am - 7pm

    The Big Pineapple
    4 more images

    Update 18/11/2012 - local VT member wise23girl has advised me that the Big Pineapple has been closed down as a tourist attraction for quite some time now.

    The Big Pineapple is a major tourist attraction near Nambour. There are rides, tours of the pineapple plantations, shops and restaurants.

    The Big Pineapple is 16 metres high and the attraction features two rides, one on a Nut Mobile and the other on a small train.

    Inside the main shop area you will find the obligatory souveniers and restaurants. I highly recommend that you try the Fruit Salad or Macadamia Nut parfaits.

    A little park... not so obvious

    Nambour, Queensland.

    You will find this quaint spot on your way to the swimming pool. Some trees and greenery line Petrie Creek making a nice place for a picnic. What I like are the steps and crossing over the creek...you are able to walk to the town side...and you are on the 'main drag'.
    There is a playground on the town side of the creek and you are hidden behind some shops...a bottle shop no less (where in Australia you buy 'grog'...alcohol.)

    Then another advantage you are close to the swimming pool and a large green oval...if you can use a large oval...

    But there is more Just before you would cross Warana Bridge to go to the pool there is a walkway...Gary Evans walkway to enjoy as well...a place for a lover's tryst...what do you think of that?

    Keep looking...you might se a platypus or a water dragon as you walk by the water.

    "Petrie Creek is a tributary of Maroochy River. It starts the western side of Nambour, flows through the city, and then flows down to join the Maroochy River quite close to Eudlo Creek at Didillibah."...It has been known to flood. and cut off the main road through through town.

    There is a first rate swimming pool in Nambour. Just behind the railway line as you drive north you will find the road leading to the pool. There are trees nearby and you can enjoy a picnic in the shade.

    If you want to have lessons and improve your swimming fitness I have included a link to Swimfit.

    Swimfit has classes in other centres as well including Cotton Tree.

    Nambour Town Square

    The last Friday of the month signifies something special for Nambour - it's the Moonlight Markets. The markets which have been i place for a few years now have a great mix of arts and crafts for sale. While browsing you can tempt your taste buds with fare from many different countries - German, Spanish and Thai to name a few. There is also live entertainment. Each time I have been I have not had a camera with me.

    THE BIG PINEAPPLE

    by Adeline_Foo Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Big Pineapple offers a day of fun and entertainment for the whole family. Just one hours easy drive north of Brisbane, on Queensland's beautiful Sunshine Coast, the whole family can enjoy the beauty of the lush tropical fruit plantations, sample Queensland style foods, come face to face with Australian wildlife or shop for quality arts, crafts and souvenirs.

    Visitors to the plantation are greeted by an imposing 16m high, fibreglass Pineapple Icon and are invited to explore its interior to discover more about Queensland's Tropical Fruit industries, or to simply take in some of the best Sunshine Coast rural views from the top level.
