About the region

Nestled in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Imbil is a perfect spot for a family getaway. Here you can escape the city for a day, a night or even a week. Walk, hike, swim, mountain bike, horse ride or just relax beside a rainforest creek.

Enjoy a picnic under a shady tree or cook up a feast on the barbecue, along the banks of Little Yabba Creek. After lunch relax with a dip in the creek or spend some time exploring the park on Little Yabba or Piccabeen circuits. Along these walks you will discover Imbil’s diverse landscape including lush rainforest, open eucalypt forest and hoop and exotic pine plantations that are home to more than 120 species of birds.

Up for a challenge? Then you can take a hike up Mount Allan and be rewarded with spectacular 360 degree views of the Mary Valley and surrounding ranges. Horses and mountain bikes are also welcome on this shared trail.

At night, relax beside a camp fire under a starry sky before falling asleep to the sounds of the Australian bush in the Charlie Moreland camping area.
