Welcome to the Conondale Ranges.....

Breadknife Elli2The Conondale Range has been rightly described as the 'hidden treasure' of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. A short journey from the coast brings you in contact with cool and beautiful forests as far as the eye can see. The Conondales are the largest patch of subtropical rainforest and associated eucalypt forest remaining on the Sunshine Coast.

The forests contain many hundreds of different plants, birds and animals that depend on this ecosystem for survival. It is literally the last stand for many of our endangered species - some of which are absolutely unique in the world.

It is a refuge set apart from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is a place to explore, to drive through or, better still, to stop and to walk, to picnic, to camp, to relax and to marvel at it all. Bushwalkers will be rewarded with hidden pools and waterfalls. Birdwatchers will be in seventh heaven.
