Mapleton Falls House
is the original 90 year old farm house built adjacent to Mapleton Falls National Park. The house sits on the hill looking over the lush green paddocks leading down to Pencil Creek which feeds the falls in their dramatic 120 m drop into the Obi Obi Valley.
The recently restored house has 4 generous bedrooms with 1 king, 2 queen sized beds and 2 king single beds. Expansive verandahs on both sides of the house catch the mountain breeze and allow plenty of room for watching the sunsets and provide a safe place for children and pets. The double sided fire place and gas heating ensure guests stay warm in winter.
Enjoy a family retreat , a romantic escape or relax and prepare for special events and celebrations. With an easy drive to the Jazz Festival in Noosa, the Queensland Garden Show in Nambour or the Mooloolaba Tri as well as various wedding venues such as the Obi Obi Hall, the house is a great base.
A short 100 metre walk takes you into the Mapleton Falls National park where birds and wildlife abound. The park is part of the Great Walks of Australia and the start of a 58 km 4 day walking trail, or for the less adventurous; the easy access 1.2 km Wompoo Circuit. Within an 8-25 km radius, bush walkers have access to several National Parks and swimming areas including Kondalilla Falls, Baxter Falls, Gardners Falls and Lake Baroon.
Sunshine Coast Hinterland
Mapleton Falls is one of the historic towns that make up the hinterland region. Situated just an hours drive north of Brisbane and within easy access to the Sunshine Coast beaches or a variety of waterfalls.
An average elevation of 450 m gives a cooler climate in which to explore some of the historic villages or the famous Mapleton Tavern which was opened in 1910 and has stunning views to the coast.
For those seeking the romantic retreat, there is the cosy log fire, award winning local restaurants, cheese factories, wineries, galleries and local crafts. A perfect place to get away.
