Nestled in the lush foothills of the Blackall Range and steeped in a rich agricultural history, you’ll find the Nambour region – the Sunshine Coast’s beating heart between the sea and the forests. With only a short drive separating you from the cosy Hinterland town of Montville, Nambour represents the first step in your journey up the mountainside. Whether you’re looking for a leisurely morning thrifting vintage attire or seeking a late-night stop-up replete with gourmet woodfired pizzas, there’s something for everyone here.
