WHAT TO EXPECT
Be prepared for 9.5 hours of amusement, nature and cultural experiences on this tour of the Sunshine Coast hinterland and Noosa.
You’ll be departing from Brisbane at around 7.45 am, and head north to the Blackall Ranges. While the tour bus winds through the elevated roads, you’ll be treated with amazing coastal views. Absorb the magnificent scenery of Queensland’s mountains, as the tour bus passes by farms and tiny villages.
As you make your way through the mountain ranges, there will be a stop at the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. Go for a walk with your guide, and watch the surrealistically shaped Glass House Mountain in the distance. In the reserve, you’ll follow a tree-top path, and you might even see some cute wallabies roaming around the forest floor.
Next, you’ll have 45 minutes of free time to explore the charming village of Montville. This settlement in the mountains is known for its boutique shops and art galleries.
Around noon, you’re making your way to the famous Eumundi Markets. This open-air market complex pops up twice a week. You can find anything from fresh produce to ready-to-eat meals, and this is the recommended place to have a lunch stop.
After filling your tummy, it’s time to drive to Noosa, a popular coastal town. Enjoy 1 hour of strolling around the scenic waterfront, or ask your guide to be dropped off at Noosa National Park to see brilliant beaches and bushland full of wildlife.
As you make your way down south in the direction of Brisbane, you’ll get a glimpse of magical beaches like the Sunshine, Marcus, Peregian and Coolum Beaches.
The final stop of this day tour is the ginger factory in Yandina, which is the largest of its kind in the world. Learn more about this factory, and try some of their signature ginger ice cream.
After visiting the ginger factory, you’ll be driving back to Brisbane. Roughly 9.5 hours after departure you’ll be brought back to Margaret Street in the heart of Brisbane.
