Today’s excursion leads us into the Sunshine Coast hinterland, once cloaked in dense sub-tropical rainforests and majestic hardwood trees. Despite the transformative logging of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, remnants like the Mary Cairncross Reserve endure, offering a 130-acre window into the area’s rich ecological past. Entrusted to the Caloundra City Council, the reserve is a sanctuary for diverse wildlife, embodying the lush rainforest that predated European settlement. Our visit, enriched with the history of this conservation gem, is complemented by a leisurely walk amidst the soothing sounds and sights of the preserved rainforest. Enhancing this experience, morning tea at the Mountain View Cafe presents us with stunning panoramas of the iconic Glass House Mountains, serving as a tranquil backdrop.

After departing the reserve, we continue to Montville, a small hinterland village with lots of character. We take our time on the drive, as many lookouts offer fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. Once a logging community, Montville has become a popular spot for tourists and is appreciated for its many different architectural styles, charming shops and quaint village atmosphere.

We are treated to lunch today at Secrets on the Lake Montville. Nestled amidst breathtaking scenery, this venue provides stunning views. We have some free time after lunch, to wander the village.

Our day’s journey is sweetened by a visit to The Big Pineapple, a delightful nod to the region’s agricultural heritage. This iconic attraction offers us a playful yet insightful exploration of the Sunshine Coast’s farming legacy.

As the day winds down, we return to the resort, our hearts enriched by the day’s encounters. The evening’s dinner at the resort offers a perfect moment to share our stories and relive the memorable experiences.

Day Five – FRIDAY 2 AUGUST 2024

This morning after breakfast, our adventure takes us into the heart of the hinterland, towards the enchanting Beerwah area of the Glass House Mountains. The journey itself is a visual delight, with scenic roads unveiling stunning vistas at every turn.

Our destination is the renowned Australia Zoo, a place of wonder that began its journey as the Beerwah Reptile Park in 1970 and has since evolved into Queensland’s flagship wildlife sanctuary under the passionate stewardship of the late Steve Irwin, the ‘Crocodile Hunter.’ Steve’s vision was to create the world’s foremost wildlife conservation facility, a legacy that lives on vibrantly in the 1500-acre haven that Australia Zoo has become. Home to over 88 species, the zoo offers an immersive experience into the world of wildlife, with engaging displays and a schedule brimming with
educational shows. We’ll have ample time to explore, learn, and be inspired by the dedication to conservation and the incredible array of animals that make their home here.
