Hike the rainforest in Kondalilla National Park
Montville accommodation puts you very close to Kondalilla National Park, among the most pristine and beautiful sites in Australia. This stretch of rainforest is named for the rushing waters for which the park is famed and offers the chance to view over 100 species of birds as well as rare animals like the pouched frog. It's also home to a number of bopple nut and macadamia nut trees. You can also view protected species of flora like pink ash, piccabeen palms, casuarinas, hoop pines and eucalyptus trees. Walking the lush green paths of this rainforest is truly a breathtaking experience.
Visit Kondalilla Falls for swimming and dramatic scenery
While you're hiking Kondalilla National Park from Montville accommodation, you'll want to visit the rushing waters of Kondalilla Falls. The falls are deep within the heart of the park and form a sight that's both serene and dramatic. A walking path surrounding the area leads you from the top of the falls past a number of scenic lookouts and rock pools. A picnic area is at the end of the trail at the base of the falls, and you can take a swim in the pool to cool off on a hot day.
Enjoy the panoramic lookouts along Blackall Range
Montville is nestled within the Blackall Range – a line of peaks that dominates the Sunshine Coast Hinterland – and the mountains are well worth exploring from your Montville accommodation. Cabins here allow you easy access to the astonishing views. A cosy 1-bedroom cottage that sleeps 2 is an ideal way for a couple on honeymoon or celebrating an anniversary to explore the intimate, unspoilt natural surroundings. In the gardens of the cottage, you'll see king parrots and possibly tawny frogmouths in the evenings, while an outdoor fire pit and pergola are ideal for sipping wine on summer evenings.
Enjoy local wine vintages at Flame Hill Vineyard
Queensland is one of Australia's wine regions, and connoisseurs of local vintages won't want to miss a chance to visit the Flame Hill Vineyard for tastings as well as delicious food that pairs well with local wines. You can tour the vineyards and learn about ethically and sustainably farmed produce that creates the incredible wines you'll experience as you sit for your meal. On your journey, you may even get to see families of yellow-tailed black cockatoos that visit seasonally. You'll find plenty of Montville holiday rental options nearby for couples and groups alike.
