Put on Your Walking Shoes and Head to Maleny

Put on your walking shoes and head to Maleny on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast to prepare for the Festival of the Walks from August 29 to September 13. The festival program not only includes scenic walks throughout the Sunshine Coast hinterland suitable for all ages but also lots of activities including music and dining.

The Blackall Range is a perfect setting for the Festival of the Walks. With a selection of national parks and scenic reserves, Baroon Pocket Dam, lookouts and water courses, the area is great for getting outdoors. Map guides are available to point you in the right direction to experience a magnificent selection of rainforest and mountain walks, ranging from easy to strenuous, from 20 minutes to several days. The Festival includes The Great Walk that winds through the scenic Blackall Range.

Montville will play host to all forms of music over the three weekends of the festival while Maleny will feature a lively buskers’ beat.
A Festival of the Walks degustation dinner will be hosted at the award-winning Reserve Restaurant Maleny on August 30 and will feature local wines and food made with the freshest of local produce. The festival will close with a special dinner at On Mountain View near Maleny on September 13 with proceeds supporting Australia Zoo’s Wildlife Warriors.
