Sunshine Coast and Hinterland Day Tours
1. Eumundi, Noosa National Park and Coast Drive Day Tour
After travelling to the village of Eumundi (one and a half hours drive north of Brisbane) and strolling through the craft markets (Sat & Wed only), our day tour heads to Noosa National Park for a short bushwalk with time for a swim. Walking to the headland, we may see koalas, plenty of birds, dolphins and between June and October do some whale watching. After a stroll along Hastings Street enjoying a gelato or coffee, we head back to Brisbane via the scenic Coast Road and Mooloolaba. Alternatively the return trip can be via the hinterland villages of Montville and enjoy spectacular views of the Glasshouse Mountains. This Day Tour is available without the Eumundi Markets option on all other weekdays.
(Eumundi Markets only available Wed and Sat mornings).
