I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

Between the beaches and the Glass House Mountains, the Sunshine Coast has some pretty special scenery. Lookouts are all well and good, but if you wanted to enjoy the setting on a drive, where would you go?

I noticed that the roads between Maleny and Monteville had some great views. They form part of the Blackall Range Scenic Drive which begins at Landsborough and ends at Cooloolabin. It's highest point is 550 metres above sea level and at some points you can see out to islands like Bribie and Moreton Island.

Is this drive the best way to see the Glass House Mountains by car? Or is there somewhere else?

The road between Maleny and Woodford had me stop and take photos

Other scenic drives on the Sunshine Coast include one through Mary Valley in the north, where you get to see a very rural side to the area, while the Glass House Mountains Scenic Drive offers plenty of things to do along the way, but how is the scenery?

Or is there another drive that has something else to offer? Another kind of scenery altogether?
