Nestled just 94 km north of Brisbane sits Kilcoy. The quintessential Aussie country town, with plenty of heritage listed homes and a claim to be home to the mythical Yowie.

It’s these type of towns that Queensland was built on, made for hard-working people and families.

Otherwise known as the Sunshine Coast’s creative nerve, this quaint country town is known for its galleries, pottery sheds and craft studios, as well as its waterfalls. If this is more your vibe, or you’re simply looking to retire to somewhere quiet, then this small town may be for you.

While this is a beautiful country town, a young family might prefer somewhere with a little more foot traffic as the main demographic here is retirees.
