Brisbane - Hervey Bay
Sit back and take in the ever changing scenery as development continues alongside the highway from Brisbane heading north. Stop off at the Noosa Botanic Gardens situated on the shores of Lake Macdonald near the township of Cooroy where you will have time for a cuppa and a wander in the gardens. The gardens officially opened to the public in 1990 and are set on 8 hectares of what was originally farm land resumed by the council in the 1950's. It now comprises of native and exotic plant species, a lily pond, an open air bush chapel and large lawn areas with winding paths. Next we will visit Rainbow Beach, nestled between K'gari and Cooloola National Park with its striking beautiful coast line. Enjoy lunch overlooking the beach before continuing on through the scenic route via Maryborough and on to Hervey Bay for the next two nights.
Hervey Bay Whales and Australiana Cottage
Today enjoy a half day whale watching cruise including morning tea and buffet lunch. Naturally, weather conditions and sighting whales cannot be guaranteed, however, every opportunity is provided to view the Humpbacks from your comfortable vessel with room to move around to maximise seeing whale activity offering photographic opportunities of these majestic creatures. This afternoon, after returning to the mainland, take time to explore the Esplanade before a visit to Australiana Cottage Crafts specialising in locally made and most certainly Australian gifts and nick-nacks. Don't overlook some of the early remedies from various common herbs and spices.
Hervey Bay - Mary Valley Rattler - Brisbane
We farewell Hervey Bay and travel to Gympie where we step back in time as we board the Mary Valley Rattler heritage steam train for a journey through the picturesque Mary Valley. After 6 years of restoration, the Mary Valley Rattler has got a full head of steam and is ready to share the scenery from Gympie to Amamoor and returning to Gympie. Admire the historical display at Gympie Station and enjoy lunch on the platform before re-boarding our coach for our journey home. On arrival back into Brisbane, your crew will have your transfers arranged.
