The kitchen is equipped for preparing a meal or just to enjoy some tasty takeaway from the local bakery, pizzeria, fish'n'chips or curry restaurant. The owner lives next door, however you will have as much or as little privacy as you desire. Borrow our picnic basket, fill it with local wine and produce, and head off to find a perfect picnic spot for the day. Interaction with GuestsWe live right next door and usually greet guests on arrival and show them around before leaving them to enjoy all that Owl's Nest Cottage and the beautiful Blackall Ranges have to offer.

Plenty of tracks to explore, waterfalls, flora and birdlife to photograph. Short drives take you to wineries, national parks, waterfalls, art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and shopping at Montville and Maleny....or 30 minutes will get you to the golden sandy beaches of the Sunshine coast. Getting AroundIf you want to give the car a rest, there's a bus that travels from the Blackall Ranges to Nambour at regular intervals. Other Things to NoteArrivals are between 2:00pm and 6:00 only, unless otherwise agreed in advance. Small well-trained dogs may be welcome...please seek prior approval from the owner. There is a small rear courtyard though fencing is minimal, so your pet will need to be on a leash whenever outdoors. Your pet may not be left unattended in the cottage at any time to ensure that they do not become stressed or destructive. A portacot for little folk under 2y.o can also be made available if booked in advance with the owner.
