Places nearby Nambour


About 106 km north of Brisbane, Nambour on the Sunshine Coast is a model of contrast. Gorgeous scenery, lush tropical vegetation, and examples of classic rural Queensland architecture vie for attention with blatantly commercial, and very popular, attractions such as The Big Pineapple and the Macadamia Nut Factory, 6 km south of the town, and The Big Cow, 6 km north.

Deriving its name from the Aboriginal word for the flowering tea-tree, Nambour's prosperity since the 1890s has been linked to sugar cane, pineapples and assorted other semi-tropical fruits. Sugar trains tour the local sugar mill which is open between July and November. The spectacular Glass House Mountains and the equally scenic Blackall Range and its chain of forest shrouded villages are a short, comfortable drive from Nambour. Towns such as Maleny, Montville, Flaxton and Mapleton are favourite getaways for craft admirers and the rainforest and water-fall studded parks and picnic areas, while Mapleton also offers glimpses of barometers and thermometers on display at Australia's only plant for manufacturing these arcane instruments.

Montville Memorial Precinct

Beyond Montville's galleries, eateries and curio shops, there's a village green with a story to tell of what happens to a community when its country goes to war.

The Montville Memorial precinct is flanked by the 1921 memorial gates and a sentry of six trees. It includes two memorial halls, accessed by a short street called Memorial Close.

Montville had developed barely 20 years before the war. It was a small rural community with 55 farmers and dairymen and their families: about 40 men went off to war.

War memorials with their marble rolls of honour provide a local perspective of community patriotism that military records can't, and Montville's adds another dimension. It includes the names of all of those who volunteered.

School children planted the trees as an Arbour Day project in 1923.

Rolls of honour for both world wars are on the wall in Montville Hall, the larger of the buildings. The smaller building, now called Montville Memorial Hall, St Mary's Hall and Community Centre, was built in 1941 as a club room for returned WWI veterans.

Montville's Memorial Park is the setting for annual ANZAC Day ceremonies and its halls are used year-round.
