Set in the heart of an arts and craft hub which typifies Queensland’s Sunshine Coast hinterland, the small rural town of Palmwoods is at the crossroads of the region’s tourist network.
Set in a mosaic of avocado, custard apples and pawpaw orchards, orange groves, banana plantations and sugar cane farms, Palmwoods is only a few kilometres south of Nambour and is within comfortable driving distance of such tourist spots as the ginger town of Buderim and the charming Blackall Range villages of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton.
Complete with village green, art gallery, stained-glass studio and museum, Montville is just 10 km from Palmwoods and is the south-eastern gateway to Kondalilla National Park. The mountain park is graced with a cliff-top picnic area, swimming pool and matchless views over Koondalilla Falls which tumble into rugged terrain dressed in ancient forests of cedar, mahogany, bunya and hoop pine.
Five kilometres to the south of Palmwoods, the village of Eudlo is distinguished by a Buddhist monastic retreat.
