The drive through the Blackall Ranges in the hinterland is a sightseers treat. Stop in at Montville and explore this popular hinterland arts and crafts destination. It’s one of the first townships after Eumundi. Odds are you’ll stop off at the Eumundi Markets along the way and that will be it for the better part of a morning spent browsing and grazing at the stalls. Which ones you may ask, because there are plenty of them, jewellery, arts, crafts, coffee (or is it covfefe?) artisan foodstuffs, local produce.

Explore the creative communities of the Blackall mountains in Montville. Peruse the antiques and crafts stores. The Queenslander architecture is particularly prominent in the area.

Stop by Castle Glen Liqueurs, they sell offbeat aperitifs flavoured like jellybeans, musk sticks and iceblocks. The best seller is Queensland Delight, which is a rum-chocolate-coffee concoction.

What are the best activities on the Sunshine Coast to do by car

If you’re planning a Noosa self drive holiday the best activities on the Sunshine Coast to do by car are not as far away as you think. Within the Shire of Noosa there are plenty of destinations, but add Maroochydore and the hinterland to your plans and you’ve got some good times ahead of you.

Swim in a waterhole at the Kondalilla Waterfalls, explore the prehistoric rainforest at the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. There’s 55 hectares of subtropical rainforest overlooking the Glass House Mountains that once covered the Blackall Range. Take your time to enjoy the spectacular scenery looking towards the Glasshouse Mountains and from the Glasshouse Mountains looking out towards the coast. Pencil in Maleny for this view. No reservations required.

Don’t forget the various wineries and craft breweries along the way, not to mention the cheese factory in Kenilworth and the roadside fruit stalls. Mmm, tropical Queensland fruit. There’s none sweeter.

Sunshine Coast Day Tours Self Drive Ideas

There’s plenty to keep you busy on the Sunshine Coast, and rarely a boring moment if you have wells to escape the local resort. No matter where you’re staying, Noosa, Maroochydore, Coolum, Mooloolaba or Caloundra, sooner or later you’ll want a change of scenery, and what better than to get in the car and go for a drive. Here’s a couple of ideas.

Depart for the picturesque towns of Imbil, Montville and Maleny. Food, arts, crafts, antiques, views and Devonshire Teas not necessarily in that order. What else is there to life? Actually the national parks along the way offer a great deal to look at, but did you know you can stop at the Kondalilla Waterfalls if you get too hot.

How about a wine and cheese tour through the Glasshouse Mountains. With almost a dozen wineries to visit in the hinterlands, often with a restaurant on the estate you’re guaranteed a complete outing with a delicious lunch.

Golfers will love having several world class golf courses just a short drive away. In Coolum there’s the much awarded Twin Waters course. Noosa Springs and the Noosa Golf Club’s championship course provide you with a vexing decision. Down the coast, Peregian Springs has the new Maroochy River course, and the Pelican Waters course at Caloundra has been designed by Greg Norman.
