Montville is another quaint town amongst the rolling hills of the Hinterland. This former logging and farming community was settled in the 19th century and is known as the creative heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. This attractive village is artsy with pottery studios, art galleries and antique stores galore. If you walk through town just look at the signposts to find the restored buildings of Montville history. Those historical buildings are worth a day trip to visit.
There are so many places to stay in this town from motel suites to cozy bed and breakfasts, or darling guest houses to make you feel welcome. With a woodworking center, football field and tennis court in the giant sportsground area, there is always something to do. Even those who live in Brisbane will spend short breaks here in the Hinterland for a quiet and quick getaway.
This small mountain resort is popular in the literature world too. It is the setting for a novel written in 1959 by Eleanor Dark called Lantana Lane. This little town has quite the history. First, a logging town like many of the communities in the Hinterland, providing dairy, citrus, pineapples and even avocados, until the seventies, when the town boomed with tourism. Because of the scenic views and rainforest walks, Montville is now predominantly a tourist town.
What kinds of things are there to do in a small, quaint town in the Hinterlands? There’s boating, fishing and picnicking at the Baroon Pocket Dam nearby if you love the outdoors. Clothing shops, wineries, cheese factories and craft shops, along with galleries and lots of restaurants populate the area. If wandering off to nearby areas is something you love doing, twenty miles away is the Australia Zoo where you can spend the day in this world-renowned attraction. Then there’s a Senses Trail at Razorback Lookout where sight-impaired visitors can be one with nature.
Visiting Montville during the holidays is a special treat. At Christmas time the streets along Main Street are lit up where you can shop and enjoy the many lights,or spend time dining or at one of the many award-winning restaurants. Indoor or out, this cute little town on the Sunshine Coast is ideal for tourists to visit any time of the year.
