The Blackall Range drive is one of the most spectacular of the Scenic Drives. It’s bursting with surprises and no matter what your interest, art galleries, food, wine, shopping, rainforest walks, coffee, views; the Blackall Range has it all.
This drive starts at Landsborough and encompasses Maleny, Witta, Reeseville, Montville, Flaxton, Kondalilla, Mapleton and Cooloolabin.
The Blackall Range is 550 metres above sea level at its highest point and in some places you can see to Bribie Island, Moreton Island, the Glasshouse Mountains, Mt Coolum, Mt Ninderry and the lush valleys and townships that dot the Sunshine Coast. Organic fruit and veges can be purchased from many road side stalls throughout the Blackall Range Drive. The lush volcanic soils of this area literally drip the food from the trees.
This drive is gorgeous at any time of the year, however if the weather isn’t the best, don’t let that put you off, dramatic cloud effects can add atmosphere. If you do strike a clear sunny day, the blue of the sky and the greens of the rolling hills and rainforests make for some superlative scenes and great photo opportunities.
Many businesses on the range don’t open until 10:00am so check ahead to avoid disappointment.
