The Great Noosa Trail Walk is just over a month away, on the long weekend of 29 September to 1 October and tickets are still available but probably not for long. With only 150 walkers and volunteer guides participating on the walk through the Noosa Hinterland, participants experience some of the very best of Noosa Hinterland’s nature, culture and communities. So it is understandable why this once a year event is so popular.
The series of trails chosen traverse Cooroy, Pomona, Cooran and Kin Kin through farmlands, natural forests and spectacular lookouts. Walkers undertake the walk at their own pace with time to enjoy the landscape, local cafes, antique shops and attractions encountered on route. A reasonable level of walking fitness is required, but this is not a race, plenty of time is allowed to complete each day’s walk. Trail guides will be on the route providing assistance and information about the history and landscape.
The Great Noosa Trail Walk prides itself on being a safe and enjoyable way for people to experience the quiet beauty of the Noosa Hinterland with volunteers and trails guides along the tracks to make sure walkers don’t lose their way and get the most out of their trail.
As well as guides, the Great Noosa Trail Walk offers a shuttle service that transports walkers’ heavy luggage and camping gear to each evening’s campsite, freeing up walkers so they can really enjoy their time and stop and smell the roses.
The trail boasts a beautiful scenic walk with sights beyond compare, and thanks to the volunteers who work tirelessly over the long weekend, walkers of varying fitness levels are able to see and enjoy every bit of it.
The 2017 event was cancelled due to extreme heat, dry weather and fires so the return of the event in 2018 has been eagerly anticipated by many.
Nearly half of the available spots have already been booked and the event is looking to sell out again for another year. Tickets for the three day walk are $240 and includes camping fees and some meals as well as luggage transportation. For more information and bookings head to www.greatnoosatrailwalk.com.au.
