MALENY .... used to be known as the town where the "Yuppies" settled.

It is an Town and area where House & Land is not cheap to buy.
Maleny is situated in the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland approx 100 kilometres north of Brisbane.
Expect it to be cooler, quite often wetter, definitely greener!
Great views of the Glasshouse Mountain's from nearby vantage point's can be seen from here.

Years ago, Cedar, Beech & Hoop Pine Tree's were in the district, but a lot of these are gone, as they were felled to provide furniture and construction timber for SE Queensland and the UK.

Now, it is mainly a Dairy area.
Maleny has market's and plenty of craft shop's too! It is usually a very busy main street because of this and the outdoor cafe's.

So, come for a drive one day, and see for yourself, I think you will enjoy Maleny, I do!
