Montville is a small bustling tourist town with a surprising variety of restaurants, cafes, tea rooms, specialty shops and arts galleries. About a two-hour drive from Brisbane and a spectacular 25 min drive from the Sunshine Coast beaches the Montville area abounds with natural attractions including the Kondalilla Falls National Park with its pleasant walks, swimming holes and waterfalls.
According to the popular local website, Visit Sunshine Coast, “Montville shares elements of its surrounding hinterland villages, like Maleny and Mapleton, but has a character all its own, with its quaint European architecture. First settled in 1887, it has grown into a thriving shopping village with a wonderful array of quality art galleries, stylish cafes and restaurants, gift shops and beautiful fashion stores, set in the picturesque surroundings of a shady tree-lined street with incredible views all the way down to the coast.
Some might say Montville is the creative soul of the region with a myriad of art galleries, pottery studios, craft cottages, gift and antique shops, specialty shops and more.
What you will be rewarded with on a Montville holiday, is a hinterland experience imbued with complete quality, fusing wonderful cultural pursuits with Mother Nature at her finest.”
