There is always a stellar line-up of world-class musicians and talented street performers, as well as face painters, and alternative therapists offering massages, palm readings and more.
Sunshine Coast Beaches
Our beaches are, quite simply, some of the best in the world. They are rimmed with wide stretches of clean, white sand, with a choice of surf or calm bays sparkling with warm water, and most are patrolled by surf lifesavers.
Sunshine Coast beaches are rarely crowded with space for everyone to stretch out on the sand, play beach sports, swim, body surf, or jump on a board and ride a wave all the way in to shore.
Our beaches are equipped with excellent recreational facilities like beachfront parklands, children’s playgrounds, undercover barbecue and picnic areas, toilets and showers and plenty of parking just a few steps from the sand. All set to enjoy the ultimate, hassle-free beach getaway.
Beerwah is a small rural town in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast offering a down to earth atmosphere. It is situated north of Glass House Mountains and approx. 80 kms from Brisbane.
The name ‘Beerwah’ comes from the Kabi language word ‘birrawaman’, with ‘birra’ meaning ‘sky’ and ‘wandum’ meaning ‘climbing up’.
Other great places to visit are Montville & Maleny, both wonderful mountaintop town’s full of very interesting specialty shops, pubs & cafe’s and the most amazing views down to the coast. There are wineries, art galleries and a superb cheese factory all close by.
For the very best views of the heritage listed Glasshouse Mountains there are several look-out’s just 10 minutes down the road from the Hideaway. Most have wonderful walks to the top but if you’re feeling lazy there is one you can drive right to the top of. This lookout has a great picnic area complete with BBQ’s.
So take some refreshments with you and enjoy an afternoon admiring this wonderful veiw, what a romantic spot to sip wine whilst watching the sun slowly slip behind the
Mt Beerwah Track
In the Glass House Mountains, remnants of the open eucalypt woodland and mountain heath vegetation, which once covered the coastal plains, provide a home for an interesting variety of wildlife including 26 rare and threatened plants.
This walk takes you through open eucalypt forest past the picnic area and up some steps to a lookout. As you continue up a very steep cliff, you walk through a pocket of closed forest with tall turpentine trees believed to be about 200 years old.
