Dulong Lookout 

First on our list, is Dulong Lookout.  Located above Nambour, this viewpoint offers a breathtaking perspective on much of the Sunshine Coast. A great spot to take a breath and take it all in, snap some pictures for the memories and even have a morning picnic with the family. We guarantee you will not be disappointed if you stop and take a moment to see Nambour from this different angle.

Parklands Mountain Bike Trails 

For those who like to experience nature on two wheels, the region hosts some great off road mountain bike trails. With a wide range of trails for all abilities and disciplines, choose your adventure by skill level and set off on a ride through the local forests with friends and family. For the more advanced rider, Parklands features winding single track, technical rocky features and high speed flow lines through the stunning Sunshine Coast tropical rainforest.

Wappa Falls 

After an active morning, you will be ready to cool off. What better way to unwind than a dip at Wappa Falls. A short drive from the centre of Nambour, Wappa offers easy accessibility to stunning rainforest walks and of course the falls themselves. This is a great place to cool off and find some shade, or a warm rock to bask on. The kids are sure to love it too.

The Mill Street Kitchen 

All of this adventuring will surely bring on a serious appetite, and we know just the place to enjoy a mouth watering lunch. Mill Street Kitchen. Makers of heavenly food, using locally sourced fresh ingredients. With an incredibly tempting Breakfast and Lunch menu, Mill Street Kitchen has it all.  How does Fried ricotta gnocchi with local mushrooms, truffle oil and parmesan sound? Or Baked Woombye triple brie with hum honey & Ten Acres sourdough, with caramelised onion & watercress?

Perhaps something a little sweeter? Buckwheat, lemon & local vanilla waffles, with Coyo, coconut ice cream, fresh fruit & maple syrup.  

Kids do not miss out here either! They have fine tuned some menu favourites to satisfy the younger palette too.  Savour the taste and take home some gourmet pantry goodies before you leave. Open Monday to Saturday.

Nambour Golf Course 

If a friendly game of afternoon golf is your thing, Nambour Golf Club is a great place to socialise, stretch the legs and enjoy some friendly competition. Located on Nambour Connection Road, the golf course is set among tropical forests & is open seven days a week. With a fully stocked Golf Shop, you can drop in and hire everything you need. And for the end to a perfect day, wind down and watch the sunset through the trees at their fully licensed Clubhouse.
