Walks on the Wildside



This month we have an invitation from Ian and Chrissie McMasters who live on 100 hectares at the end of Mt Mellum Road overlooking the Glasshouse Mts to visit and explore their beautiful property. They have an amazing knowledge of native plants and are working very hard to bring the property back to pristine condition. They also propagate their new plants. The view over the Glasshouse Mountains is spectacular from their mud brick house which houses native bees as well as them!

The visit and walk will be on Saturday 17th October meeting at the property at 8.45 for a 9am start.

The address is 521 Mt Mellum Rd., Mt Mellum.

If you are using a GPS, plug in 509 Mt Mellum Rd., Mt Mellum, then keep going down the same road. Do not plug in 521 as it will lead you astray.

If coming from Maleny:

  • Turn off the Landsborough-Maleny Rd. into Upper Mt Mellum Rd.
  • At the first intersection, veer right onto Mt Mellum Rd
  • Ignore MacDonalds Rd, which is unformed, and Agnew Rd, both on the right
  • At the next intersection, turn right into Mt Mellum Rd (yes, you were already on Mt Mellum Rd…. no,  the naming is not very helpful!)
  • Nearly 2kms along, at the end of the bitumen, keep going to the left of the “No Through Road” sign, straight ahead, down the dirt track. This dirt track is our entrance road.
  • Through the entrance pillars with the property name ‘Sagrado’ and up to the house

If coming through Landsborough:

  • Go over the railway line and continue straight ahead for about 500m to the large roundabout.
  • Left at the roundabout into Gympie Rd South.
  • Take the first right, about 200 metres along, into Lower Mt Mellum Rd. (sign says “Lower Mt Mellum Rd. To White’s Rd”)
  • About 4kms up the winding road
  • At the first road off to left, turn left into Mt Mellum Rd.
  • Nearly 2kms along, at the end of the bitumen, keep going to the left of the “No Through Road” sign, straight ahead, down the dirt track. This dirt track is our entrance road.
  • Through the entrance pillars with the property name ‘Sagrado’ and up to the house.
