One of the places we visited in Maleny when my friend came over was the Botanic Garden. It's 16 acres of walking around. The views are awesome, the plants and flowers are pretty. I remember, Mcj's niece had her wedding there. The Tatapilla meandered around on his own and wanted to do it again when we finished.
Driving to Maleny, the scenery are awesome. Lush trees and mountains are surrounding the roads.
My friend and I went to Southbank as well. We played tourists of course and have some food there and browse at the markets.
A friend of mine visited for a weekend so we did a bit of exploring in the city. First stop, of course, is coffee at Starbucks. We shopped a bit too at the H & M, it's somewhat new in Australia.
Queen St is a bustling part of the city as most of the shops are there. The part that I know of is mostly for pedestrian. There are restos and cafe in the middle.
Here are some view of the buildings. There are always buskers.
