Palmwoods is a small rural community, 10 minutes to the mountains and 20 minutes to the coast. The Blackall Range, just west of us runs from Maleny through to Mapleton and has some magnificent scenery, waterfalls, galleries and restaurants.
To the East is the ocean, boasting some of the best beaches in Queensland. It’s great to spend a day, but ah, so nice to escape the summer crowds, and retreat to Turmeric Gardens for a peaceful nights sleep.
Should you wish to simply prop here to relax, you can stroll along bush paths, gaze into bush ponds, or follow the creek down gullies through native palms and towering gums. The local bird life is extensive and native animals pass through regularly.

Within close range by car is the Buddhist retreat Chenrezig Institute, Glasshouse Mountains, Noosa National Park, Underwater World, Eumundi Markets, The Australia Zoo, The Big Pineapple, Ettamogah Pub and numerous other less known, but equally entertaining attractions.

If eating well is your passion, there are many wonderful restaurants and caf├ęs within easy reach.

Turmeric Gardens is in a great part of the world and we will be only too happy to steer you in the right direction.
