Maleny

Here we are in beautiful Maleny rolling green hills, deep pockets of rain forest, galleries, craft shops and of course that other necessity in life - lots of cafes, even a fromagerie, all with the magnificent backdrop of the Glass House Mountains.

The Maleny Showgrounds have very good camping accommodation, all for only $15 per vehicle, powered and there's a good walking path/boardwalk from the showgrounds into town.  The walk follows the Obi Obi Creek which is part of a subtropical rainforest recreation project.  Yesterday whilst walking into town I saw an Azure Kingfisher - such an incredible blue.
