Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Places like Flaxton Barn are what I would refer to as a 'Licorice-Allsorts' sort of shop - you know the outlets that have everything except the kitchen sink? Well, Flaxton Barn is a true treasure trove of anything and everything you can think of, whether it's antiques, vintage, collectables or even present-day - a fun place to wander and browse and admire what's on offer and perhaps to buy a gift or two.

Positioned on the scenic Blackall Range Mountain Drive between Montville and Mapleton this quirky-looking place also has a cafe, the Verandah Cafe, with home-baked delicacies like scrumptious buttermilk scones to homemade Chunky Beef Pie, with everything on the Menu freshly made in-house. Premium Harvest Natural Bean Coffee is their coffee of choice, a multi-award winning Sunshine Coast coffee brand with a variety of blends and boutique origins to delight any coffee lover. A great stop for coffee and cake or a gourmet luncheon platter, whilst sitting outdoors and enjoying the rural surrounds.

In addition to the Cafe and Gift Shop, Flaxton Barn also offer wine-tastings - from a range of highly awarded handcrafted wines - the product of Settlers Rise Vineyard and Winery, who have been producing wines in Queensland for over twelve years. Settlers Rise don't have a cellar door for the public to access and are not sold in retail bottle shops. The general public can purchase bottles online or enjoy a wine-tasting in places like Flaxton Barn.

So definitely a 'Licorice-Allsorts' sort of place and with ample parking out front, a stop here would not be amiss.
