Travel to the Upper Mary Valley in the Sunshine Coast hinterland boasting wonderful mountain views and fresh air.

Take a walk through the orchard, followed by a casual morning tea featuring their home made Feijoas cakes and muffins coupled with organic tea and coffee.
Journey onwards through the rolling green hills as you make your way to some spectacular views over the Glass House Mountains at the Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World. Uniquely landscaped layers, idyllic rainforest surroundings and the spectacular Glasshouse Mountains backdrop create a truly unique garden.
