Melaney is a small beautiful town high in the heartland of the Blackhall Ranges where the air is fresh and cool and only 40 minutes drive from the Sunshine Coast and the major tourist centres of Noosa Heads and Maroochydore. It is a good day trip where you can enjoy the Wine and Art trail by visiting the nearby towns of Kenilworth, Mapleton and Montville.

Being so close to the coastal tourist areas it is easy to make several trips to the area, perhaps visit some wineries and have lunch one afternoon, and then return another time to hike the rainforest mountain trails

Glasshouse Mountains Strong Aboriginal Tradition
