Flaxton is sometimes considered the prettiest of the Blackall Range settlements, located in the rolling hills between Montville and Mapleton. Avocado Grove is within easy reach of all the area has to offer – boutique shopping, art & craft galleries, restaurants & cafes, National Parks, waterfalls, look-outs, picnic areas. We are located approximately 6kms from the lovely Montville Village, a shopping and dining delight.

For the food, art and wine lovers, there are wineries and cheese factories in the area, as well as an extensive gallery trail. The area boasts boutique food stores, fudge shops and delicatessens.

For those who prefer more active pursuits, there are many national parks and bush walking tracks nearby. Test your fitness level on the ‘Great! Walks’ from Baroon Pocket Dam to the Kondililla falls.

Flaxton is also a great place to do nothing….just relax. Sit back and enjoy the cool mountain breeze and the sounds of nature. Book an in house massage or take a lazy lunch at one of the many local restaurants or cafes. Curl up with a book under a tree or enjoy a picnic at one of the many National Parks or look-outs.

The world famous Mooloolaba, Maroochydore and Noosa beaches, Australia Zoo and the Eumundi Markets are all only 35 to 45 minutes away.
