Things to do

MONTVILLE
montville
Montville, the jewel of the Blackall Range, will captivate you with the tranquility and beauty of its national parks, scenic walks and inspirational lake views. Allow yourself the time to soak up the majesty of the rainforests and let the cool mountain air revive your spirit. The quiet beauty of this area makes Montville the perfect romantic getaway destination.

From shopping to galleries, chic cafes to fine dining restaurants and exciting young wineries, Montville has a well earned reputation for excellence. You’ll be amazed at the skill and craft of some of Queensland’s premier artists – offering a selection of contemporary and traditional artwork.


THE ARTS & GALLERIES

Montville has always been the home of some of Australia’s most exciting artists. There is a narrative that reaches back to the early 1900’s that speaks to this day of the creativity that Montville and the Hinterland has nurtured and fostered.

Visitors marvel at the skill and quality of the woodworkers of the Hinterland and their displays particularly before the Christmas season provide a wonderful reason to come up and visit Montville for that unique Christmas gift. There are woodworking shops in Montville and Maleny where the talent of the local craftsmen can be enjoyed and purchased.


KONDALILLA FALLS

Ten minutes by car to the north of Montville lies the entry to the Kondalilla National Park and the famous Kondalilla Falls. The whole district around Montville contains some wonderful walks and parks for the visitor to explore. Detailed maps of the area can be obtained from the Montville Information Centre located at the southern end of Main Street. Visitors are encouraged to pick up a free copy of the many walks maps available which contain details and helpful advice to ensure a walk in the area is a truly enjoyable experience.

Kondalilla Falls and the walk to it are very popular in the summer months. The lure of a dip in the rock pools is hard to resist on a hot day. However a degree of fitness is required to make the trek to one of the two walking circuits.

FANCY A SHORT WALK?

Montville is the perfect place from which to base yourself for some excellent short walks. These walks will be no problem for those with an average level of fitness. They suite the young and old, mums, dads and the kids plus there are a couple of great options that are wheelchair friendly. We suggest that you get further detail from the Montville Information Centre at the southern end of Main Street.


THE RUSSELL FAMILY PARK
This beautiful park is located in the centre of iconic Montville. You can enter via the Main Street public carpark behind the Information Centre. You will find open green spaces with a spring fed lagoon, easy walking paths, gas BBQ’s, picnic shelters, a children’s playground and toilet facilities. This is a top spot in the heart of Montville to relax and take a break. If you fancy a picnic this is the place for you!


LAKE BAROON

At the southern end of the Montville Main Street just past the Information Centre you will find the turn into Western Avenue. Follow this road for about 4km and turn left down the hill into the spectacular Narrows road. This road is very steep and will take you down to the Lake Baroon dam.


MARY CAIRNCROSS PARK

This park is about 15 minutes drive south of Montville and is well worth a visit. It has two circuits of 1.2km and 1.75km of which both are wheelchair friendly.

Mary Cairncross Park covers some 55 hectares and has one of the best remnants of subtropical rainforest in Australia. Also the views across to the distant Glass House Mountains are simply magnificent.

With its own micro climate Mary Cairncross Park is a truly refreshing escape in the heat of mid summer.
