Marvel at the original timber cottage and farm shed built in 1900. Explore the numerous sights and natural beauty of the Mary Valley. Take a day trip to beautiful Sunshine Coast beaches, the famous Eumundi Markets or the enchanting hinterland townships of Mapleton, Montville and Maleny. The choice is yours.

Fresh water fishing
Trail bike riding

If you don't have your own equipment, all of these activities can be easily booked at nearby Imbil.
Your pets are welcome to enjoy a holiday at Oakview too! A large fully fenced back yard will keep your dogs safe and happy during your stay.
HOLIDAY WITH YOUR OWN HORSE
Oakview is unique in that it is one of the few holiday rentals in South East Queensland where you can bring your own horses on holidays with you.
Two large grassy purpose built horse yards and shady paddock shelters mean your horses will be safe and comfortable during your stay at Oakview. Unlimited cool clean drinking water is available. The horse yards can readily be sectioned off into smaller yards for extra horses. Storage facilities for rugs, tack and feed are available. There is ample off road parking and turning space for horse floats. Please bring your own horse feed, feed bins and hay.
The Imbil State Forest right next door offers some of the best trail riding in SE Qld. Extensive hoop pine forests and native bushland offer riders almost endless trails to choose from. Nearby Charlie Moreland Park and Amamoor State Forest offer even further choices for great riding and are just a short float trip from Oakview.
For those less adventurous riders or for the young people in your group, Oakview offers 200 acres of gently undulating paddocks and pockets of bush to quietly explore with your horse. After a day of riding and exploring, come home and swim your horses in the babbling Coonoongibber Creek in the bottom paddock.
For your next holiday get a group of horsey friends together and come riding at Oakview. You and your horses will love it!
Guided group trail rides with quiet horses supplied can be booked nearby if you don't have your own horse.
