This charming mountain village, settled in 1887, is known as the creative heart of the Sunshine Coast, as many artists live here. There are panoramic views of the coast from the main street, a charming mix of Tudor, Irish, and English cottages constructed of log or stone; Bavarian and Swiss houses; quaint B&Bs; and old Queenslander homes. Shops are a browser's delight, full of curiosities and locally made crafts, while galleries showcase more serious pieces by local artists. A new 1½-km (1-mile) zip line over the treetop canopies of Kondalilla National Park is also under construction, slated for completion in 2015. Note that the nearest major banks are in Nambour.
