Marvellous Maleny

One of the Sunshine Coast's worst-kept secrets is the hinterland. Towns like Maleny, Montville, and their nearby lookouts and national parks are just gorgeous, and all within an hours' drive of Brisbane (give or take, depending on where you live).
We used to spend loads of time there many years ago, when my lovely brother S. and his family lived there.
So when they visited recently, we couldn't resist the chance to meet up at Maleny for old times' sake.

A delicious Mochacino

Miss 7 chose a meat pie with a cow pastry on top!

Mr 9 opted for a 'second-breakfast' three-egg ham and cheese omelette. He's a growing boy.

Ah, so true. A sign in the main street.

Now these are mice I wouldn't mind finding in my kitchen!

Assorted deliciousness!

Old-fashioned sweet shop

We ended the day with a swim in our cousins' pool ...they are lucky enough to live on the coast!

You guys are so lucky to still have pool weather there! *sigh* it's getting colder by the day here :(

I love Montville & Maleny!
I feel like I'm on top of the world up there.
