Montville

The road to Montville winds through lowlands to highlands, not unlike the drive to Olinda or Sassafras or up to the Swiss Alps. Sparse, low marshy brush gradually gives way to dense copses of tall timber as you make the ascent into the Blackall Mountain Range. On the way you will pass Australia Zoo but being terrified of reptiles I have no desire to stop there. The town is home to any number of B'n'Bs and boutique hotels, including Tree Houses of Montville where I have the ambition to stay one of these days - so long as there's no spiders...
