About 105km north of Brisbane, near Mapleton, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Excellent views of Mapleton Falls and the Obi Obi Valley are highlights for visitors to this small but significant remnant of the forests that once covered the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Riparian rainforest and open eucalypt forest communities are protected here. Pencil Creek forms Mapleton Falls, plunging 120m into the valley below. During warmer months listen for frogs in the pool beside the causeway. Take a close look at rocks around the pool and you’ll see distinctive hexagonal shapes formed by volcanic activity 25 million years ago.
