7am start for registration and a free breakfast.

If you love the great outdoors be among the first to bike, walk or ride your horse along the new Cooroora Trail when it opens to the public on Sunday 30 November. The Cooroora Trail Opening starts with a free breakfast from 7.00am at the Noosa Showgrounds, Exhibition Street, Pomona. Trailblazers will leave in stages, mountain bikers at 8.15am, horse riders at 8.30am and those walking at approximately 8.35am. Refreshments can be purchased from the Cooran Rec Club at the end of the Trail and a free shuttle bus will run between 9.30am and 1.30pm returning you to your car and/or float at the Noosa Showgrounds, Pomona.

Volunteers will watch your bike/horse while you catch the bus back to your car or you can walk/ride back at your own pace. As the trail is 10kms a reasonable level of fitness is required and it is estimated the mountain bike ride will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, horse riders approximately 2 hours and walkers should allow approximately 3 hours.

Make sure you bring water, a hat and wear sunscreen.

Horse riders should note in the urban areas of Pomona and Cooran small sections of the trail follow the roads and cross the railway lines and therefore it is required that rider and horses are experienced. Free mountain bikes from Noosa Bike Hire can be used for the morning but numbers are limited so bookings are essential. Phone 5474 3322 to book.
