#1 The Sunshine Coast Hinterland
We feel this is the pinnacle for any acreage home builder looking to build that beautiful acreage home design on the Sunshine Coast. As a matter of fact, it would have to be one of our most favourite areas in South East Queensland
To the Northern end, Mapleton, Montville and Flaxton are quaint, small communities that offer the country feel with many small acreage land for sale and even the odd larger acreage lot. With stunning views and townships that remind us of an idyllic country town, these suburbs are simply stunning.
Maleny is the largest Hinterland town with views of the Coast as well as across the surrounding region south to the Glass House Mountains, a simply breathtaking area. It is the home of Maleny Dairies, so you can imagine it is like a lush farmland that is nothing short of ideal for anyone who has a love for acreage living and everything that it offers. Here you can access some of the best acreage for sale on the Sunshine Coast to build the ultimate acreage home design.
Further down to the Glass House Mountains you’ll find the local townships of Landsborough and Beerwah, both offer very affordable property options from smaller semi-rural lots to your larger acreage land for sale.
With the Sunshine Coast hinterland being close to the Bruce Highway and Brisbane this makes it a very attractive, great value area, and as Brisbane expands to the north, you can avoid the city while still having great access via road.
