Montville, Queensland 4560
Montville is a small drive inland from the Sunshine Coast, about 30 minutes. It is an arts and crafts area, and a very popular tourist destination, even in mid winter.
Many an hour can be spent in the “Chocolate Shop” and the “Candy Store”.
Montville also has a restaurant with a “Pay What its Worth” lunchtime menu, where YOU decide what your meal is worth, and pay them that figure… I would love to hear anyone’s comments on how well that works…
If you are to afraid to try to set a price, don’t worry, they also have normal menus… I think… 🙂 www.zanasatmontville.com.au
Whilst driving through the village, this pub caught my attention, mainly due to the sign outside…
The Penefathings Inn (English Style Pub)
and the sign outside, that may interest some people…

If Arts and Crafts, and some speciality shopping is your “thing”, then Montville is for you… I think I even saw a “Husbands Creche” for you to leave your husbands, whilst you hit the shops. I will be looking it up, next time… 🙂
