100 Walkers Take To The Hinterland This Weekend For The Inaugural Great Noosa Trail Walk

October 1, 2013 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

This weekend 100 walkers will discover the natural and cultural landscape of the Noosa hinterland as they take part in the inaugural Great Noosa Trail Walk.

Enjoying a series of trails through Cooroy, Pomona and Kin Kin, walkers will discover natural farmlands, forests and spectacular lookouts. Undertaking the walk at their own pace, walkers will have time to enjoy the landscape, local cafes, antique shops and attractions encountered on route.

As part of the event a nightly entertainment program is provided at Pomona’s historic Majestic Theatre and the longstanding Cooran School of Arts Acoustic Night.  Some of the other highlights of the walk include Mill Place, Lake Macdonald, a rainforest planting project, bird watching, a brumby training display and the Kin Kin markets.

Whilst a reasonable level of walking fitness is required, it is not a race with plenty of time allowed to complete each day’s walk.  Trail guides will be on the route providing assistance and information about the history and landscape.

Camping accommodation is provided in camping grounds in Pomona and Cooran or alternatively accommodation is available at numerous guest houses.  A shuttle bus will transfer all camping gear, as well as be available to collect tired walkers.

Participation in the Great Noosa Trail Walk costs just $150 per person which includes registration kit, detailed walkers program, public liability insurance, shuttle buses to transport walkers and their equipment, camping fees, breakfast and lunch on the final day and entry fees to the various activities.
