Sunshine Coast Hinterland Sights


Big Pineapple Review

Sunshine Plantation in Nambour, just over 100 km (63 miles) north of Brisbane, is home to the impossible-to-miss Big Pineapple. You'll pass it on your way wast if you head inland to Eumundi, Maleny, or Montvale. The 50-foot fiberglass monster towers over the highway. The original plantation train and farm tours still operate, although the property is in the process of renovation to return it to its former glory. Nonetheless, if you're interested in Australia's "Big" things (a series of large fiberglass roadside attractions that dot the country's road system) and are passing through anyway, it's worth a quick stop for a photo and a sundae.
