A family fun day at the Cooroy Mountain Spring Festival; 7.00 am to 1.00 pm on Sunday 18 October 2015. For just $10 (age under 16 free) you can come along and enjoy a fun day of music, a kids' activity centre, food and market stalls and have a chance to climb Cooroy Mountain. www.cooroyrotary.org.au/index.php/cooroy-mountain-spring-festival-2015
One hour will be ample time to walk to the top up a rocky track; closed footwear is mandatory for walking up the mountain and we recommend you bring a hat, some water and sunscreen with you. Pink marker tapes every 50 meters or so makes it quite easy to follow all the way to the summit. A hundred metres from the top, there is a rocky slab with some great views to the West over the sunny coast hinterland and further up on the south eastern side of the summit there are views to the East from the sand patch beyond Lake Cootharaba down the Sunshine Coast to Mount Coolum.
Before you start enjoy billy tea and damper and a hearty BBQ breakfast and when you return sit and listen to the wonderful stories from bush poet, John Major. Entertainment will be provided by the wonderful local UkeCrazy People singing well-known songs with their own arrangements, presenting great harmonies and toe tapping rhythms and beats.
For those seeking less energetic exercise, there is the rainforest walk including an 'Observation Trail' that follows a winding path through the rainforest With a very generous sponsorship donation from McDermott Helicopters; the largest privately owned and operated Heli-Aviation Company in Australia and based here in Cooroy, there is a chance to see Cooroy from the sky for only $50.
The festival will raise funds for good causes and this year local Sunshine Coast disability support service Sunshine Butterflies will be the main beneficiary. Sunshine Butterflies support babies, kids, tweens, teens and adults with a disability and their proceeds will be used to further their 'Our Backyard Project'; a 5 acre Hobby Farm in Cooroibah (just out of Tewantin/Noosa) that has something for everyone of all ages and abilities.
