Rainforest and Montville Day Trip from Noosa or Mooloolaba
From US$105.96
Overview
Escape the coast and discover the picturesque villages and natural wonders of the Sunshine Coast Hinterlands on this full-day tour. Trek through the rainforest and admire views of the Glass House Mountains in the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, enjoy free time to explore the hinterland town of Montville, and tuck into a gourmet lunch at a lakeside restaurant. Along the way, stop at scenic lookout points, visit a traditional coffee house, and have fun exploring the Ginger Factory.
What to Expect

Today is a day for nature, views and local delicacies; we pick you up from Mooloolaba early morning or if you are staying in Noosa approx. 45 minutes later from your accommodation depending where you are staying.

Pioneer Coffee

First up, it’s coffee time…Smell the heady aroma of freshly roasted coffee as the roaster gives you a personal demonstration at Pioneer Coffee. After that, sample the wares and purchase some of their blends or single origin coffee to take home with you.

Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve

After our coffee stop we drive across 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 Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve you have an opportunity to walk 1.7km through the pristine rainforest learning about the unique flora and fauna that abound here.

If we are lucky enough to get a volunteer guide for the walk, they will point out the diverse bird life and hopefully you’ll spot more animals too.

Montville

When we arrive into Montville you can spend an hour checking out the quirky and delightful shops and boutiques, enjoying this picture-postcard mountain village and its mountain air.

Gerrard's Lookout

After Montville, it’s time to get back on the minibus and check out the awesome panoramic view from Gerrard’s Lookout.

Secrets on the Lake

Next, we’ve got a lunch date on the lake! Set in rainforest, on the side of Lake Baroon you’ll enjoy a delicious 2-course meal on us including a beer, wine or soft drink. “Secrets on the Lake” is a popular foodie destination in Montville and enjoys panoramic views of the lake.

Ginger Factory

Following Secrets on the lake, we spend two hours at the Ginger Factory giving you plenty of time to learn to how Ginger is grown, harvested and turned into yummy foods on a Factory Tour, ride the Ginger Train or go on the Overboard Boat Ride.

You can also shop at speciality retail stores, enjoy a huge range of delicious foods or wander the sub-tropical garden filled surroundings.

Optional extras at The Ginger Factory include the Guided Factory Tour, The Overboard Boat Ride and Moreton The Ginger Train

Whether you want to eat, shop or play - the Ginger Factory has something for all the family.

You’ll be dropped back to your accommodation late afternoon in time for a rest before dinner.
