The Palmwoods area makes a lovely drive through the country side, situated in the valley below the Blackall Range, on the coastal side. The small town now known as Palmwoods (named after the Piccabeen Palms that grow in the area) was originally called Merriman Flats and is at the Northern end of the valley. It can be reached via the ‘Hunchy’ or Razorback Road from Montville, or from the Bruce Highway via Kiel Mountain. A stones throw from the Big Pineapple, and Nambour, it is a luscious green hilly area, and a gateway to the coast. A great area to sit in a café with a good book as you watch the world go by.
