For the modern-day traveller, Palmwoods has all the charm of a bygone era. A great day
trip destination, this village can be reached by car or conveniently is a major stop on the train line from Brisbane.

This delightfully pretty hinterland town, nestled in the foothills of the Blackall Range, is home to one of the Sunshine Coast’s most eclectic restaurants: Rick’s Garage.

Here diners will be transported back to the rockabilly 1950’s. The walls and ceiling of Rick’s Garage are plastered with old school posters and classic memorabilia, and out the front visitors will find the real deal – with vintage cars and motorbikes lining the street on any given day.

The menu is just as impressive as the décor, with milkshakes and super-sized burgers to be
enjoyed in their beer gardens or upstairs whisky bar.

Palmwoods is also home to some vibrant cafes, including Homegrown Café and One Weird Dog Brunch & Gelato Bar.

Ideally situated within comfortable driving distance of Nambour, Woombye, Eudlo and the charming Blackall Range villages of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton, Palmwoods is the perfect hidden gem to explore on your Sunshine Coast Hinterland adventure.
