Group Tour-enjouing the hpoliday

Group Tour

From Maleny there is definitely an amazing scenic drive that heads down the range through green pastures and forest into the valleys that the Mary River winds through. There are a number of beautiful spots in this area to stop

Group Tour

for a picnic beside the river or one particular of the creeks that leave it. Next to the bridge crossing of Little Yabba Creek there is definitely an idyllic spot to get a picnic with toilets, tables and access to the creek for paddling. Across the bridge from the picnic area is an easy rainforest walk termed Fig Tree. There are also a number of roads that wind through the State Forests and lead to camping and picnic areas this kind of as Charlie Moreland and Booloolumba.

After enjoying a picnic you can head towards Kenilworth along a winding road through forests that ring with the sound of Bellbirds. At Kenilworth is traditionally a farming town and there is a cheese factory which has a tasting tour and some wonderful cheeses for sale. There is also a great playground if you have kids with you on your day time trip.

The road from Kenilworth back up to the top of the Blackall Range is referred to as Obi Obi Road. It is a steep and windy drive to Mapleton that’s very scenic. There are a couple of creek crossings that make a nice spot for a quick paddle. As you once again reach the top of the range there is Mapleton Falls National Park with its waterfall and short trails.

Driving from Mapleton to Montville along the range you will see a number of craft stores, restaurants and lovely views. There is also the amazing Kondalilla Falls which require a 3.2km walk to visit the rock pools at the top. It is really worthwhile if you have the time as the falls are amazing and the rock pools are great for any refreshing swim.
