Hire a Car and Discover Hidden Gems in South-East Queensland

When you hire a car from Five Star Car Rentals it allows you the freedom to get out and explore the countryside. There is more to Brisbane and South-East Queensland than just urban areas and traffic. It is the gateway to what is known as the Scenic Rim, with so much to see and do.

Let’s take a quick look at some places you can explore with your Brisbane car hire from Five Star Car Rentals.

 

Stunning Springbrook National Park

Springbrook National Park in the Gold Coast Hinterland could really make an entire day trip. There are plenty of magnificent waterfalls and nature walks in this region. You have the choice of seeing the sights from the numerous lookouts, or heading down into the valleys to the cool and serene rock pools below the falls. Purlingbrook Falls is the biggest and most popular waterfall in the area, but smaller Twin Falls is definitely worth a look as well; and it’s an easier and shorter trek to reach the rock pool below. There are some nice cafes and restaurants where you can have lunch, or pack a lunch and take it with you.

 

Natural Bridge

Also sometimes referred to as Natural Arch, this magnificent stone archway lies high up in the mountains above the lush and picturesque Numinbah Valley. It is only a small waterfall and a short walk through the rainforest to reach it. There is a natural cave below the falls and at night time, you can experience the mystery of the glow worms.

 

Beautiful Maleny

Well renowned for it’s quaint little cafes and artsy shops, Maleny is one of the most popular spots to visit west of the Sunshine Coast. Nestled into the Blackall Ranges, you can drink in the scenery while sipping a latte, or visit the many art galleries and craft shops. For the more adventurous, perhaps climb onto a horse for a leisurely horseback tour.

 

Montville Village

Montville is also located just west of the Sunshine Coast. This quirky little town is famous for its chocolate shops and unusual boutique stores that sell unique items you won’t find anywhere else. The area is also well known for its delicious cheese factories, wineries and cafes. If you love art, there are galleries here too.

 

Magnificent Tamborine Mountain

Tamborine Mountain is quite a big area to explore once you reach the plateau of the summit. Although it doesn’t boast much in the way of waterfalls, there are plenty of great bushwalks you can take, and lots of caves to explore. Tamborine is also renowned for its restaurants and drinking holes, so you are bound to have a great day out in this serene location.
