    Hi Ashmark20, Montville is 1 1/2 hours drive north of Brisbane situated in the Hinterland above the Sunshine Coast. It's about 2 1/2 hours drive from the Gold Coast. We would love to see you one day.

    Driving at legal speed approximately 6 minutes, however if you are a visitor it will be longer as there is so much that is beautiful to see along the way.
