The Area: Montville, QLD
Set among the lush, rolling green hills of the Sunshine Coast hinterland is Montville, a small town on the Blackall Range. First settled in 1887, the town has since grown into a thriving shopping village with an array of art galleries, cafés, restaurants, and gift shops. Quaint European architecture characterises the shady, tree-lined streets, which lay around 400 metres above sea level, resulting in incredible views all the way down the coast. Visitors to the area tend to explore Kondalilla National Park to get in touch with nature.
