Maleny

The weather was OK but it had been raining as we headed for the Eumundi Market. Dianne was in heaven, such a large market but I was the first to part with some of my hard earned cash. A crocodile leather wide brimmed hat (which looking back from 2015 has become my favourite choice of head wear when the sun gets hot).

After spending a few hours wondering around the market we headed for Maleny where we would spend the next 3 days just looking around the area. The Maleny Showground is our first stay away from a caravan park but we settle in well. It is a short walk into town via a walkway along a creek. The track entrance from the showground is not well marked but is almost hidden behind the tennis courts.

Montville is a small town with the main street almost entirely setup for tourists. A small shop was chock a block full of cuckoo clocks. Dianne was again in her element and we spent a couple of hours checking out the sights.

Gerrards Lookout is on the road back towards Maleny, great views back towards the coast. We also paid a visit to Maleny Cheese and purchased some delicious passionfruit yoghurt

Mary Cairncross Reserve was also a great little stop over. We checked the walking trail. The locals enjoying a coffee in the coffee shop were huddled around a wood heater rugged up like they were at the South Pole instantly recognised us as Tasmanians as we strolled in wearing shorts and Tshirts.

We spent a few days around Maleny, which was very close to the Glasshouse Mountains
