The small close-knit community of Maryvale is typical of the type of town you’ll find in South East Queensland – friendly, peaceful, and surrounded by stunning natural beauty. The area’s lovely aspect and crisp mountain air has seen a number of health resorts and farm stays open up. These resorts offer guests fine dining, award-winning local wines, pools, spas, horse riding, bushwalking, and the cosy ambience of an open log fire.
The town of Maryvale itself is nestled in picturesque farmlands but just five minutes drive east you’ll come to the grandeur and majesty of the World Heritage listed Main Range National Park. This expansive park is part of the Scenic Rim and offers exhilarating walks (including the three to four day Scenic Rim Trail) through dense rainforest, past thick groves of piccabeen palms and along the edge of sheer cliff faces. There are waterfalls and bubbling creeks to enjoy and the views across the valley will take your breath away.
Back in town, be sure to visit Maryvale’s historic pub constructed in 1912 and take the time to wander around and enjoy a little country relaxation.
