The Charms of Mapleton

Well the views from Mapleton are indeed spectacular...you look right over to the Sunshine Coast from the Flaxton Road area. And if you head along Obi Obi Road you can turn off to see the Mapleton Falls and the forest reserve areas

The air is fresh and even on a hot day elsewhere you have that coolness that comes from the forest and open farmland.

Flowers seem to love growing here and vegetables are picked fresh and crisp from the family gardens.

Blackall Range tourist drive signs

You will see these signs as you drive along so take my tip and go that way...you will find Mapleton.

And please look at the reviews...if you take the scenic drive I mention you will find all sorts of lovely eating places and restaurants, the first coffee place in Mapleton itself then just along a bit you will find Flaxton a real goldmine....

Flaxton does not have a spot on the data base hence the inclusion with Mapleton...but Flaxton is only a few minutes away

Little Shops

Right on the corner is quite an array of delightful little shops in Mapleton. If you like Antiques you will find some charming pieces to adorn your outfit.

This is one of my favourite shots of Princess....outside the cafe at Mapleton

For Mystery Tour followers our next stop is Yandina.

It is OK if you visit the Buderim Ginger Factory in Yandina even though it was not me who wrote it up! LOL!... well I have added a little something myself now now

    how nice to see this Renault 4CV here in your page, it was the very first car that my father bought back in 1958 or so and it seemed to me to have an always-smiling face !

    looks to be a lovely, off-the-beaten-path area.
