The kids and I love Noosa! With family living in Sunrise Beach we now have even more reason to visit the Sunshine Coast! Shops and beach for me. New training terrain and surf for Courtney. And a whole new hinterland to discover as a family!

It’s a place where you need a car, a surfboard, and a comfy pair of walking shoes!

Bellingham Maze was around a 40-minute drive from Noosa towards the Hinterland. The property has two mazes; the unique hedge maze and a wooden fence like maze. Something you don’t to see every day.

If you have a competitive family like ours, this is the place for you!

The Big Pineapple was a great place to stop for photos. You can climb through the inside to the top of the pineapple, take a train ride around the property or just grab a quick snack and a drink. Unfortunately, they didn’t sell any fresh pineapples, but you could get a little pack of pineapple lollies (cute).

FACT: It takes two years to grow a pineapple.

Keep going through the scenic Montville down to Lake Baroon, where you will find Secrets on the Lake. A little hidden gem that sits high in the rainforest treetops above a beautiful lake. The property is famous for its tree-house accommodation, which unfortunately remains a secret to me.

We stopped here for lunch and ate at their restaurants which overlooks the lake. Or you could walk down to the lake and enjoy a nice picnic. Leo had one of he’s worse meltdowns that lunch, so looking back this would have been a better alternative for us.
