The Blackall Range runs behind the Sunshine Coast parallel to the ocean. Starting with Maleny in the south a road travels along the ridge, linking Montville, Flaxton and Mapleton and showing spectacular views over the Sunshine Coast.
A drive up the range is a very popular outing for residents and tourist alike.
Activities are varied. There are three main parks with walking tracks through subtropical rainforest and sclerophyll forest - Mary Cairncross Park, Kondalilla National Park and Mapleton Falls National Park.
Shops, galleries and restaurants can be found in all of the range town and there are wineries at Maleny and Montville. There are also many Bed & Breakfasts and small hotel accommodation.
