Maleny is situated about 1½ hours north of Brisbane in the Sunshine Coast hinterland on the southern end of the Blackall Range. Noted for its beautiful lush surroundings and spectacular views of the Glasshouse Mountains, Maleny is also a magnet to artists of all kinds who are inspired by the unhurried lifestyle the area offers.
It is a town we visit for that special trip. There are some delightful eating places...one even sells Cornish pasties. And everyone loves Mary Cairncross Park.
In my horse riding days I often drove through Maleny on my way to Charlie Moreland Park.
You can actually do a complete round trip.....great drive...through Kenilworth and up the Obi Obi Road or continue on to Eumundi and to the Bruce Highway.
It was a sad day for Maleny when a giant supermarket chain decided it must establish a store at Maleny. They built right on the creek whwere the platypus had their home. No amount of public outcry stopped them. Many of the locals will not put foot in this store but it was said to me by an employee of the chain "We do not worry about the locals...in the longer term they will shop with us. we can wait"
