Choose from two variations of this full-day tour. Both tours start with morning pickup at the Jen Hotel in Brisbane for a 1.5-drive to the Eumundi Markets. Both also have a knowledgeable guide and travel in a climate-controlled minivan.

Depending on the tour that you select, have either 40 minutes or two hours at the Eumundi Markets, which features more than 600 vendors who sell their handcrafted toys, household items, one-of-a-kind jewelry, locally designed clothes and more. If you work up an appetite, choose from a range of tasty ready-to-eat dishes, fresh-baked breads, local cheeses, fresh salads, homemade chocolates, cakes and beverages.

After the market, embark on the next leg of your journey (options listed under Itinerary below). Throughout the day, your guide shares the history of the places you visit and tips on the best spots to check out.

Itinerary

Eumundi, Noosa & Hinterland:
Spend 40 minutes at the Eumundi Markets then take a short drive to Noosa, where you have 1.5 hours free to explore the relaxed coastal town's beaches, restaurants and bars. Walk along the beach and boardwalk to watch the surfers, or take in the fashionable shops along Hastings Street. Your tour includes a ferry ride on the Noosa River that takes you into the heart of town, with photo ops of Noosa National Park and Laguna Bay.

In the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, less than one hour’s drive from Noosa, mountain roads lead to the town of Montville. Admire the town’s architecture, with Tudor, Irish and English cottages that sit next to Swiss- and Bavarian-style chalets. Stroll down streets lined with art galleries, restaurants, wineries and small shops that sell items such as handmade candy, cheese, clothing and cuckoo clocks. Other notable sights include an old mill with water-wheel and panoramic views over the coastal plain.

Continue a few minutes down the road to Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. You can opt to take a leisurely guided walk through the rain forest, gazing up at towering trees and across the Hinterlands at the Glass House Mountains.

Eumundi & Hinterland:
This tour spends three hours at the Eumundi Markets and does not go to Noosa. After perusing the wares at Eumundi Markets, you’ll meet your guide and drive a half hour to reach Montville. From here, the tour continues as above and returns to Brisbane in the early evening.

This day long trip was the highlight of my 6 days stay in Brisbane. With a jolly driver, and insightful explanations all the way, it was a day well spent.

We had a wonderful time on this tour from start to finish. A very family oriented tour suitable for all age group. Simply love Eumundi Market!! Montville is a nice place too. The rain forest walk could have been better if it wasn't the rain.

We went on Easter weekend, which is probably why everywhere was so crowded, but unfortunately the roads were also very busy and this made our schedule even more tight than it would be normally. We felt that the whole day was rushed, with not enough time in any of the places we visited to actually enjoy them at all. On a more positive note, Heather, our driver and guide, was very pleasant and informative.

While tour was generally good I was disappointed by only spending 45 minutes in Noosa including lunch. The booking for the tour showed 1.5 hours in Noosa. We were told that we would be bored spending more time there which I disagree with. I think that probably the boat ride could be removed so that additional time could be spent in Noosa.

I also did not feel the political commentary along the way was appropriate.

Montville and the sanctuary were great.

We really liked this tour, although we could have done without going to Noosa and Noosa Heads. The boat ride in Noosa was not worth the time or the money and then there was no time to do anything in Noosa. If I could have booked a tour to the Eumundi Markets and to Montville without Noosa I would have done that. Our tour guide was great. Montville was a great little town - very scenic. The Glass Mountains lookout was fantastic and the Eumundi Markets are so worth the visit.

Excellent tour considering how much we covered in one day. The markets were extensive, Noosa with a river cruise was wonderful and the stops at Montville, Mary Cairncross Reserve and the Cheese Shop were delightful. A long day but very satisfying.

Overall, the trip was great and we enjoyed ourselves. The stay at Eumundi Markets could have been longer as we didn't have time to finish visiting all the stalls. The Noosa beach was beautiful and Montville was very nice and we love the breads and pastries there. We also enjoyed walking with the guide in the rainforest and the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve.

It was not what I expected we did not have the time in Noosa 1 hour was not long enough, if I had known that I would have stayed at the markets which was amazing.
It is a trip to see a lot of things in one day and a long time on the bus.
It was a beautiful day and I would like to visit Noosa again
