CRYSTAL WATERS is located 1.5hrs north-west of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia and is part of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
We are only 20minutes from Maleny and within reach of various Sunshine Coast beaches, the Glasshouse Mountains, waterfalls, Lake Baroon, national parks, art, music and craft attractions, local weekend markets, cafes and restaurants.
NOTE: Make sure you have a printed copy of the map & directions to take with you on your journey, as there is no mobile/data reception in the area.
Take the Bruce Highway north and, following the major road signs, turn off at Glasshouse Mountains Road towards Landsborough (which is approx. 40 mins from the centre of Brisbane). Turn off to Landsborough, across the railway line and then follow the signs to Maleny.
Drive straight through Maleny, which will take you onto the Maleny-Kenilworth Road. Stay on this road for about 17kms as it descends into the Mary River valley until you reach Aherns Road. There is a bus shelter on the corner and a sign to Crystal Waters. (If you arrive at Conondale, you’ve missed this turn and need to go back about 2km towards Maleny)
Turn left into Aherns Rd and go about 7km further on, (ensuring you take the right hand fork, indicated by a small “CW” sign and arrow, at Conondale Timbers saw mill) until you reach Kilcoy Lane (second on your right) with a “Crystal Waters” sign under the big tree on the facing corner.
Turn right into Kilcoy Lane and the Crystal Waters Village area is on your left, just after you cross the river.
Crystal Waters is around 60km from the Bruce Highway / Eumundi – Kenilworth intersection. As you approach the Sunshine Coast, turn right at this intersection towards Kenilworth. Drive through Kenilworth and on towards Maleny. About 2 km past the small village of Conondale, turn right into Aherns Rd. then on to Crystal Waters as per the instructions above.
