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!

Experience the magic and creativity of a hinterland town


Perched high above the Sunshine Coast with spectacular views towards the Glass House Mountains, visitors to south-east Queensland will discover the unique rural community of Maleny. Locals say that the rolling green hills, the deep rainforest pockets and the lush green panoramic views cast a magical spell over all who visit this picturesque little town.

Stunning gifts


The very special Maleny Handmade Markets are only held every three months, so November is the perfect month to get in with some early Christmas shopping. At present, the market dates for 2021 are in April, August and November and as we all know, may be subject to change, due to Covid conditions.

Leave the hustle and bustle of the city and the coast and travel to the beautiful tranquil Sunshine Coast Hinterland town of Maleny. Get to meet the lovely talented locals, stroll the quirky streets and enjoy a coffee and a bite, made with local produce.
