View from Kanyana Park, located between Nambour and Mapleton looking towards the coast

Kanyana Park is a small park located about halfway between Nambour and Mapleton, at the top of the steep climb up the mountainside.

The park has views over Nambour through to the coast with the highrise buildings of the Sunshine Coast in the distance.

The name Kanyana is an Aboriginal name meaning meeting of people or gathering place.

There is a picnic table shelter with two tables and a small playground with swings. Toilets are between the parking area and the picnic tables.

A little further up the road is Dulong Lookout Brown Sign link offering similar views but without the facilities.
