Sunshine Coast Hinterland

Nestled inland away from the glistening coastline, the Sunshine Coast Hinterland provides a spectacular backdrop of lush greenery and untouched beauty. 

Popular places to explore in the Hinterland 

Named by Lieutenant James Cook during his epic voyage along Australia's east coast, the Glass House Mountains are intrusive plugs formed by volcanic activity millions of years ago. Enjoy scenic views from the lookout in Beerburrum State Forest or explore one of the walking tracks through open forests to lookouts offering panoramic views.

Chase waterfalls and enjoy the scenic lookouts from the quaint country towns of Maleny and Montville, through to Kenilworth. Along the way, explore the boutiques and discover the thriving art trial showcasing local artists and their original works. 

Discover the heritage village of Yandina and visit the Ginger Factory or visit the iconic Big Pineapple in Nambour
