MONTVILLE MAGIC

PERCHED HIGH ON THE BLACKALL RANGE IN THE SUN­SHINE COAST’S HIN­TER­LAND, A WALK DOWN MONTVILLE’S MAIN STREET FEELS LIKE A STEP BACK IN TIME.

Scout Magazine - - Day Trippin’... -

Just a short drive north-west from Montville’s Main Street, you’ll spot the bright red Flame Hill Vine­yard through the lush green trees be­fore you see it. Tak­ing ad­van­tage of the rich soil and na­tive flora, Flame Hill of­fers fine dining, wine tast­ings and a cel­lar filled with wines, condi­ments and rel­ishes straight from the farm. Other Montville wine op­tions in­clude Ma­son Wines and Castle Glen, which can be found in Montville Cel­lars. A rain­for­est moun­tain range, a stun­ning dam and a na­tional park com­plete with a cas­cad­ing wa­ter­fall – th­ese are just some of the nat­u­ral won­ders that are eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble from Montville. Hik­ers can find adventure along the Sun­shine Coast Hin­ter­land Great Walk (a range of ex­pe­ri­ences can be en­joyed along this 58km trail, from half-day walks to three-day walks with camps), day trip­pers will love Kon­dalilla Falls, while art-buffs will grav­i­tate to the var­i­ous Montville gal­leries. Rich moun­tain­ous farm­lands and a tem­per­ate cli­mate cre­ate the per­fect con­di­tions for local farm­ers to grow the fresh­est, tasti­est pro­duce and Montville’s many restau­rants cer­tainly make the most of it. Whether it’s break­fast with a view at panoramic Al­ti­tude Café or a hearty stew at Gypsy’s Table, Montville’s dining op­tions boast home­grown pro­duce served with a side of small town hos­pi­tal­ity – a com­bi­na­tion that can’t be beaten.
