I love exploring Brisbane and discovering unique little hideaways with my family. I also write a blog www.photoshowondvd.com.au/blog to inspire the use of multimedia to create Videos and Photo Slideshow Story on DVD.

One of my all time favourite places to go to is Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve in Maleny. It is 100km from Brisbane with an estimated drive of an hour and half. While you drive there, you will see one of the most beautiful and breathtaking scenic routes comparable to the English Countryside.
Rainforest Walk in the Sunshine Coast Hinterlands

Take a walk and explore the rainforest trails which is open from 7am to 6pm with only a Gold Coin Donation. A walk through nature is a sure way to be inspired by the natural beauty and appreciate the calm sounds of nature at its best. My 5 year old son loves the walk.

You have a choice to either have a picnic or BBQ, or you can have a meal at the Cafe. I've seen the Cafe hosting a Wedding Celebration. What a great way to celebrate an event at the Cafe which overlooks the panoramic views of the Glass House Mountains.

I've brought my kids here many times and they enjoy relaxing away from the day to day activities. I will always remember this as one of the hidden treasures in the Sunshine Coast Hinterlands.
