Road Trip Around The Noosa Hinterland & Find A Gem

The Noosa Hinterland is home to any number of stunning towns, villages and scenery. The best way to take it in is a road trip. Feel free to follow your route just make sure you drop in for a coffee and a bite or maybe a brew if time isn’t pressing. We love the drive from Eumundi to Cooroy, into Pomona and through to Kin Kin and Cedar Pocket if you have the time. If you’re travelling at the right time of year make sure to stop by Cooloola Berries, where you can pick your own berries, walk through fields of Sunflowers and grab a bite to eat.

Take in the Sunset – Mount Tinbeerwah

Mount Tinbeerwah offers a stunning sunset. Simply drive to the lookout and take a stroll to the viewpoint. Offering breathtaking 360-degree views of both the coastline and hinterland. Although you can’t witness the sunset over the ocean or coast, the sight of the mountains and hinterland being bathed in golden light is exceptional. Find a spot on the rocks to relax and savour the views. It’s best to stay at a lower level facing the mountains, as the view is more striking there.
