So What do Locals Say about Living in Little Mountain?
When asked about what is so great about Little Mountain, our Agent and local resident of Little Mountain, Rhonda Matthews, was only too happy to tell us why.
“Words that locals use to describe Little Mountain are “Peaceful” and “Evergreen”. With numerous and spacious green areas that offer room to move, play, exercise and thrive – by far the most enjoyable aspect of living here is the sense of nature and space.
Living in this great Estate amongst extraordinary houses you will find a diverse and interesting community of people who come from far and wide to settle their family on this part of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
The Hub of the area is called “Little Mountain Common” which is situated on Raintree Boulevard, Little Mountain. With amply shaded areas, walking tracks, picnic hubs and playground, residents have a great sense of being spoiled for green natural space and room to breathe.”

NATURE & WILDLIFE
There is another hidden world among the trees in the Common. Living in a beautiful, natural environment means that you get to appreciate and respect that rich biodiversity on your door. Exploring nature, you will perhaps spot a possum box or bird house that is home to some of our sweetest native animals and birds. Feeding the ducks at the lilly-covered pond is a timeless activity that children and adults love.
Keep your eyes peeled for the other wonderful native birds in abundance such as the Rainbow Lorikeet and Pink Galahs. Nests and baby birds learning to fly are an interesting spectacle to observe. The Common provide ample safe spaces and plenty of native trees, flowers and snacks that our feathered friends thrive on.
