  • Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Mooloolaba

What to Expect

Choose your Sunshine Coast pick-up spot and we’ll collect you and your group in our comfortable COVID-safe air-conditioned minibus. We’ll drive you in luxury through the spectacular scenery of the Sunshine Coast to the hinterland town of Maleny, high in the iconic Blackall Range.

On this Botanical Garden Sunshine Coast Tour, you’re free to roam through the tranquil beauty of the Maleny Botanic Gardens, 18 acres of waterfalls, lakes and gardens planted with a heady mix of native and exotic flora.

When you’ve refreshed yourself with a Devonshire tea at the Garden’s friendly cafe, it’s time to head over to the awe-inspiring Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. Lose yourself in the sights and sounds of this subtropical rainforest; spot some of the 141 species of birds that flit through the canopy; discover the breathtaking range of bugs, beetles and butterflies that are the hardest workers of the rainforest. It’s an unforgettable experience for bird and bug enthusiasts and for normal people alike.

Then it’s just a short drive up to Clouds the Barrel Vineyard for a delicious lunch. You’ll enjoy incredible locally produced food with an optional glass of wine. A perfect end to a perfect day.

Don’t forget to bring comfortable footwear as the Rainforest Trail can be uneven, and a jumper as the Rainforest can be cooler than the coast because it’s higher up. It’s just science.
