Sunshine Coast hotels

Located in the verdant Sunshine Coast Hinterland on the Conondale Range, Kenilworth has a charming little village feel that makes it an idyllic place to spend time on your Sunshine Coast getaway. The town is a gourmand’s delight and most famous for its dairy products. The award winning Kenilworth Cheese Factory is an excellent place for cheese lovers to try out some of the country’s finest gourmet cheeses. It is open seven days a week and offers cheese tasting and the chance to buy direct from the makers. Wine lovers will also enjoy a visit to the Blind Mans Bluff Vineyard in Kenilworth where you can sample locally produced wines, purchase from the cellar door and enjoy a drop of vino served up with local specialties.

A sojourn around the Kenilworth Historical Museum is also an interesting way to pass a couple of hours as the museum charts more than 150 years of pioneering and local history.

All around Kenilworth there are beautiful hiking and bush walking trails and camping spots. One of the most popular locations to get into nature and get some fresh air is at Gheerulla State Forest, where there are trails, picnic and barbecue facilities to help make for a pleasant day out. Another impressive natural spot in the area is the Kenilworth State Forest with its tranquil streams, lush forest and deep gorges forming a backdrop along the bushwalking paths.

Although Kenilworth is a little town, it punches above its weight when it comes to events and attractions. Throughout the year there are special events such as the Kenilworth Celebrates Arts Festival, the Kenilworth Show and Rodeo and the Kenilworth Food and Wine Festival and the Kenilworth Limerick Festival.
