About Us

Creative Tours acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share. We recognise that these have always been places of cultural, spiritual, social and economic significance.

Creative Tours was established in 2016 with the idea of showcasing the local produce and local stories of the region.

We are a small, locally owned and operated business and pride ourselves on delivering authentic local experiences and tours that focus on local food and produce including local farms and restaurants, wineries, distilleries, breweries, cheese, coffee roasters and scenic tours.

Join us behind the scenes to meet the local growers and producers of the amazing food and produce that the Sunshine Coast, Noosa and Hinterland have to offer. We proudly support local farmers and producers and encourage guests to buy local!

Our small, personalised tours take you to explore the hidden gems of the local region in a private or shared group in a modern, air conditioned vehicles.

Sustainable Tourism Sunshine Coast

We strive to lessen the environmental impact of our business, while at the same time increase social and economic benefits to our community.

  • Participating in the Reforest / Visit Sunshine Coast campaign – through this campaign we have calculated our CO2 footprint (30t per annum). This will guide our future environmental planning to reduce this amount through planting trees locally through the Reforest platform.
  • This CO2 trip calculator is shared with guests when they book so they can also calculate and offset their travel.
  • Prioritising use of sustainable products and purchasing from environmentally responsible businesses and local businesses wherever possible. 
  • Partnerships with environmentally focused local businesses
  • Email confirmations with no paper ticket printed (noted on confirmation)
  • Fleet – vehicles are maintained and regularly serviced as per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Removal of all single use plastic items – customers encouraged to bring their own water bottles instead of supplying single use. 
  • Staff issued re-useable coffee cups and water bottles
  • Sustainable Tourism accreditation through the Quality Tourism Framework.
