Where is it?
Our home is in Mapleton, a small village on a range of hills (Blackall Range) on the Sunshine Coast - just inland from Caloundra on map. (For more detail go to: http://www.tourismsunshinecoast.com.au. We look over rolling hills to the ocean. Mapleton boasts some pleasant restaurants and cafes as well as a popular pub. There are several bush walks in rain forests. We selected Mapleton because of the pleasant village atmosphere and because it is close to so many places to enjoy.
Mapleton is 10 mins drive from Montville, a popular tourist town with interesting craft shops and restaurants.
Mapleton is an hour and a half from Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. Brisbane is a modern city with a very attractive inner city area for entertainment including a major performing arts centre, shopping and restaurants.
Mapleton is about 30-40 mins drive to the beaches. The Sunshine Coast offers a range of uncrowded beaches for surfing, boating, snorkelling, scuba diving fishing and walking. It is also a good place for fresh fish markets. Noosa, on the northern end of the sunshine coast, is a very popular beach town with upmarket shops, restaurants, and protected beaches.
About 30 mins drive away near Beerwah is the Australia Zoo built by the famous Steve Erwin (the Crocodile Hunter).
