best route from Brisbane to Bunderberg through Glass Mountai

We are a retired couple from England travelling from Brisbane in January and here the most scenic drive is through the Glass Mountains area. Can anyone help with a route that would give us one night on the way possibly heading down to the coast the next day to look at Noosa, realise it will be very expensive to stay in Noosa in January so looking for somewhere nearby.

There's a tourist route along (I think) the old highway that runs through the Glasshouse Mountains and should be well signed. Amazing what we don't notice when we drive a road we know so well. It will come out at the intersection of the Bruce Highway at the Caloundra turnoff.

Sorry, not sure of where to stay, but the tourist route is definitely more scenic than just driving up the highway.

Turn off the highway onto Steve Irwin Way and drive through the Glasshouse Mountains. Drive up the range to Maleny, just before you get to Maleny turn left for great views of the Glasshouse Mountains from Mary Caircross Park. Have a wander around Maleny township then drive through Montville, Flaxton and Mapleton. ( In these areas you will find lots of Art and Craft, devonshire teas etc, national parks, rainforest, waterfalls)

Drive down the range towards Nambour then up the highway to Eumundi which might be a good overnight stop for you.

There are several different options you could do but I hope this gives you some idea.

Enjoy!
