Sunshine Coast launches Luxe Trekking rainforest experiences

Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is offering nature lovers the opportunity to combine guided walks in spectacular rainforest with award-winning deluxe accommodation, indulgent spa baths and fine local cuisine.

Small-group guided walk specialists Tropical Treks and Montville’s Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat have launched a three day Luxe Trekking package that includes a full day guided walk in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, two nights’ accommodation in a rainforest pavilion, gourmet local-produce breakfasts, a dinner in Montville and a BBQ dinner at Narrows.

On their first afternoon, guests can be transferred to one of the walks for a short introductory self-guided walk, or they can explore the villages of Montville and Maleny.

Day two includes five hours walk – a true sensory experience that takes in the rainforest’s rich array of sights, sounds and smells. Walks take place along sections of the aptly named 58km Hinterland Great Walk, which rambles its way over the peaks and ravines of the Blackall Range, linking several parks and reserves, including Kondalilla National Park, Mapleton Falls National Park and Mapleton Forest Reserve.

The easy walking, well managed trails pass under a subtropical rainforest canopy and through open Eucalypt forests that contain abundant wildlife, including koalas and over 300 tropical bird species.

Day three allows guests explore the beautiful Hinterland villages and landscape.

The multi-award winning Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat is located near Montville adjacent to the Hinterland Great Walk.
