After picking you up from your accommodation we begin our scenic drive towards the Hinterland making our first stop at My Dilly Bag, an Australian Native Bush Food & Botanicals Market Place. Here you will sample a range of nutritious and tasty products including Native herbs and spices to jams, relishes, pasta and snacks, all made with Australian Sovereign Food ingredients.
Then it’s a short drive to Mary Caircross Reserve to view the historic Glass House Mountains where your tour guide will talk about their significance to the local Traditional Owners, the Jinibara and the Kabi Kabi people.
The Glass House Mountains were formed 26–27 million years ago from remnants of volcanic activity in the region. The area is now also known for its abundance of local farmers and producers.
Then we make our way into the town of Maleny to visit a local chocolate maker, before enjoying a delicious platter for lunch featuring local produce. Maleny Food Co features products from local bakeries, cheese makers, local meats and of course a taste of their award-winning gelato before we depart.
Relax while we take you on a scenic drive along the Blackall Range as you take in the breathtaking views of the Sunshine Coast beaches and coastline with a short stop at a lookout. Shortly after we arrive in the town of Montville where you can wander through the artisan village visiting local artist galleries, artisan stalls and novelty shops.
We wind our way back down the range to Woombye to visit a local distillery which has a beautiful outlook and a well earned drink on arrival. Enjoy tastings of their award winning gins, vodka and organic rums, along with tasty snacks from local producers.
By this stage you will be content and full of local produce and local stories as we make the slow journey back down the range to the coastline to drop you back from an amazing day out with Creative Tours!
This is where we go!
