ITINERARY This luxury private tour begins with a short drive to our first stop at the beautiful Peregian Beach Village. Here you can explore the wonderful variety of boutique locally owned stores in what’s becoming one of Noosa’s favourite shopping hideaways. Make sure you save some time to also walk through the park to the secluded Peregian surf beach. After another short drive we will take an easy climb to the top of the 70 metre high Emu Mountain, which is not much of a mountain, but offers incredible panoramic views of the area. Our experienced guide will point out some endemic plants that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Next we visit Coolum Beach, home of one of Australia’s best surfers, where we will take in the sea views from the clifftops of Point Arkwright before walking the coastal boardwalk down to Coolum Beach esplanade. As it is now time for lunch, you will be seated at your table overlooking the Coolum surf, where you will indulge in your included lunch with a drink. Once you’ve eaten you can decide whether to stay for another drink or go explore the beach, park, or shops until it’s time to leave. A scenic drive south of Coolum will land us in a hidden part of the Sunshine Coast called Mudjimba where you can peer across at Old Woman Island from this little paradise and get some sand between the toes. Our most southerly stop of the tour could easily be your favourite as we walk the Maroochy river mouth and visit the smallest island on the coast, with uninterrupted views of Maroochydore and Cotton Tree. A tour along this stretch of the Sunshine Coast would not be complete without a drink on the open deck of a hidden lakeside bar. We’ll get the first round of drinks and let you sit back and reflect on your day or go explore a little before we leave.
