Overview
Dust off your hiking boots and get ready to do The Cooloola Great Walk, a new bushwalking experience for 2018 that showcases the very best of the Cooloola Coast’s outstanding natural attractions. This 55-mile (88 kilometre), 5-day, 4-night, fully-guided, self-sufficient hike, links the Noosa Northshore to Rainbow Beach via the 500,000 year old Cooloola Sandmass which forms unique dune, perched lake and vegetation systems. Just 2 hours north of Brisbane is a remote region of 200 meter high giant sandhills, hidden sub-tropical and tall eucalypt forests, where you’ll be surrounded by nature’s chorus. See unspoiled ‘River of Mirrors’ in the Noosa Everglades and stark volcanic crags formed over 25 million years. To the east is Teewah Beach and Pacific Ocean where migrating Humpback whales can be seen during their annual migration from June to November. Watch the sunset over western volcanic peaks, witness the Milky Way and Southern Cross in the night sky and wake to the birdsong.
