A WEEKEND TRIP TO MALENY (added 23.4.11)
The best part about travelling is that sometimes you don’t have to go very far to find what you are looking for.
There is something about staying at a place with wide open spaces, where the only sounds heard were the sounds of laughter coming from our mouths at the complete elation we were feeling.
The second we left the city and drove through the mountains our bodies relaxed and our minds slowed down.
We were only at Maleny for the weekend, yet driving home felt like we had been away for a week. Maleny is a place of natural beauty with wide open spaces as far as the eye can see, the glasshouse mountains as a backdrop and content looking animals roaming free. It would be hard not to share their sense of freedom and tranquility .
Queensland is rich with natural beauty and no amount of natural disasters like the ones that have just affected 75% of our state this year can even manage to eradicate that.
Maleny; thank you for such a relaxing weekend, your beauty lifts our spirits, your quietness soothe our souls, and your rolling hills and fresh air invigorate and refresh us.
