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.
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.
