Exploring Eumundi, Naturally.
For those of you who take pleasure in the simple things in life.
The adventurers, the nature lovers, the outdoor enthusiasts and the active, there is one place you must put on your exploration list. A place where the country meets lush, tropical forest and bushland. With rolling hills, babbling creeks, breathtaking views and lots of hiking and riding trails.
That place is Eumundi.
Just a short drive from the popular Noosa beaches and into the nearby landscapes of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, you will be surrounded by beauty everywhere you look. Here are our top picks to free your mind from the 9-5 hustle, and the best places to spend some soul restoring time in nature;
Natural gems in and around town
Take a scenic drive in the morning and get the blood flowing with a walk to one of the many outlooks in and around town. If you’re visiting on a Wednesday, Friday or Saturday, why not pop in to the Eumundi Markets and pick up some fresh, local produce or some locally made grazing food and enjoy a picnic in the Sunken Garden. This hidden gem is right in the heart of town, just across the road & up the hill from the aquatic centre on Pacey Street.
Eumundi Bushcare group have been caretaking and regenerating this area with beautiful natives, so expect to see some birds when you arrive. The picnic table overlooks the garden and despite being so close to the local shops, you will feel like you’re miles away, in your own oasis.
If you feel like a brisk walk or ride with options, Eumundi Conservation Park is great for all ages and abilities. An easy place to park up if you’re heading to Eumundi from Noosa, on Eumundi Noosa Road. This park provides a full trail map so you can pick your own adventure. With 4 trails and easy to intermediate options, exploring this native bushland has never been easier. Don’t be surprised if some of your fellow trail users appear on horseback. The Eumundi Conservation Park can be explored on foot, bike or horse so you can choose how you want to experience the journey.
Short Hikes for Hinterland & Coastal Views
If it’s full views of the coast and hinterland you seek, Mount Tinbeerwah is a quick 10-15 minute drive along the range, towards Tewantin. A hike with a stunning 360 degree outlook that will not disappoint. Tinbeerwah is also a great one for the family as it has easy parking and isn’t too far for little legs.
Eager for a more substantial uphill hike? Mount Eerwah is just a short 10 min drive west of Eumundi and offers stunning hinterland views. Not for the faint hearted, this walk is sure to get your blood flowing, so make sure you’re wearing comfortable hiking shoes and have your water bottle with you.
If you love to watch the sun go down, end the day on a high note and head up to Ball Lookout. Bring some afternoon refreshments and enjoy the show with someone special. This is the perfect spot to pull in after a day of activity, as there is no extra walking involved. Just park up and experience the magical view!
Stay a little longer
There are so many things to see, and trails to explore, you might like to stay a little longer at one of the local Bed & Breakfasts, or AirBnB retreats nearby. There are many beautiful old homesteads, farms and rainforest cabins to choose from. Some with spectacular views, a warm fireplace and an outdoor bath (just what you’ll need after a long day of adventure). There is something to suit any number of guests, young or old, and you will be able to enjoy nature on your doorstep in just about any part of Eumundi’s diverse landscapes. Settle in to make the most of your weekend with friends and family, or that special someone.
There really is no better place to recharge your batteries & reconnect with the natural world than Eumundi.
