Full description
Today is a day for nature with a Sunshine Coast Hinterland day tour, including spectacular views and local delicacies. Your experience will begin as you are picked up from Mooloolaba in the early morning, or from Noosa and Noosaville 45 minutes later from your accommodation (depending on where you are staying).

First up, it’s coffee time (on Thursday tours only). You can smell the heady aroma of freshly-roasted coffee as the roaster gives you a personal demonstration at Pioneer Coffee. Following this, you will be free to sample the wares and purchase some of their blends or single-origin coffee to take home with you.

After your coffee stop, you will drive across the Blackall Range to Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, a bush-walkers paradise set on 55 hectares of subtropical rainforest overlooking the stunning Glass House Mountains. In the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve you will have the opportunity to walk 1.7 kilometers through pristine rainforest, learning about the unique flora and fauna that is present there.

You will then arrive in Montville where you will spend an hour checking out the quirky and delightful shops and boutiques, enjoying this picture-perfect postcard village and its mountain air. Following Montville, it will be time to get back on the minibus and check out the awesome panoramic views from Gerrard’s Lookout.

It will then be time for lunch at Secrets on the Lake or The Edge Restaurant. Set in the ​rainforest on the side of Lake Baroon, you’ll enjoy a delicious 2-course meal including a beer, wine, or soft drink. Next up you will visit Nutworks. Nutworks is a proud supplier of macadamia nuts in the shell, kernels, flavored nut products, and sweets. Located in Yandina on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, they are an Australian company recognized for quality and innovation. Nutworks supplies major supermarkets, and smaller outlets nationally, and also export their products overseas. At the conclusion of your tour, you’ll be dropped back to your accommodation in the late afternoon in time for a rest before dinner.
