A romantic getaway on the Sunshine Coast that has so much to offer

If you’re enjoying a romantic getaway at Top of the Hill and decide you’d like to venture out from your luxury accommodation that overlooks the lush valleys of the Hinterland, you will be spoilt for choice with what you can do.

The Hinterland has so much to offer in the form of arts & culture, golf, nature walks, markets, food & wineries and much more.

See all that the Sunshine Coast has to offer on your weekend getaway

There’s so much to see and do in Maleny on the Sunshine Coast, and you don’t have to go far.

Mary Cairncross Park –  A couple’s retreat in Maleny’s Sunshine Coast would not be complete without taking in the beauty of the Glasshouse Mountains. Just minutes up the road, with its beautiful walks through majestic rainforest where you can make friends with the pademelons and try to identify the many birds that live here, including the magnificent regent bower bird. Enjoy the new interactive educational information available at the new Rainforest Discovery Centre

Kondalilla Falls – This beautiful walking trail takes you from the top of Kondalilla Falls, past rock pools and stunning views, down the escarpment to a picnic area. Kondalilla provides a beautiful nature walk, with plenty of swimming holes for a quick dip on a summers day.

Gardeners Falls – A great setting for your romantic getaway, you can cool off on a hot day in the waterhole and enjoy a picnic on one of the many picnic tables.

Australia Zoo – Top of the Hill might feel like a world away, but the iconic Australia Zoo is right on our doorstep.

Maleny Dairies – Get back to basics and see live demonstrations of milking, baby animals and chickens being fed and even get to try the end products with tastings of yoghurt, milk and custard.

Golden Beaches – If you have come for a couples retreat from interstate it would be a shame not to visit one of the many beautiful beaches the Sunshine Coast has to offer. If you want to add some adrenaline into your weekend getaway you have the option skydive over the beautiful coast line.

Food & Wine – The perfect treat for your romantic getaway as the hinterland is truly a foodie paradise.  Visit one of the many wineries that the Hinterland has to offer. Why not indulge in a delicious cheese platter from the Maleny Cheese Factory to accompany your wine tasting? Don’t worry if you are more of a beer drinker, a visit to Brouhaha Brewery in Maleny will be on your to-do list.

Try a degustation experience at a premier a la carte restaurant or casual dining at one of the many boutique cafes & coffee shops.  You can enjoy fine dining at some award winning restaurants or maybe learn MasterChef secrets at a cooking class. The list is endless with many choices to make your retreat memorable. 

At The Top of the Hill, you can start the day with a choice of delicious breakfast available from our menu using local produce, cooked fresh for you. But be warned, this might leave you so satisfied that you won’t be ready for another culinary treat until dinner time.
