Maleny — 5 nights

A large influx of people searching for a cooperative lifestyle migrate to Maleny every year.
Venture out of the city with trips to Strawberry Fields (in Palmview) and The Big Pineapple (in Nambour). There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Australia Zoo, relax in the rural setting at Maleny Dairies, admire the natural beauty at Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World, and view the masterpieces at Art on Cairncross.

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Maleny tour planner.

Traveling by car from Noosa to Maleny takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of train and bus. In July, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 18th (Sun) to allow time for the flight back home.

Beaches · Zoos · Gardens
Beaches, sun-drenched streets, and a relaxed ambience are the defining elements of Sunshine Coast, a region just north of Brisbane. Having grown rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s, Sunshine Coast became a popular destination for surfers in particular and has now grown into a well-managed city focused on "green" economic development.
