Brisbane to Noosa Heads Day Trip

by jserel

Hello all!

Thinking of taking a day trip to Noosa Heads from Brisbane in a few weeks. I am considering renting a vehicle to allow for greater flexibility once in Noosa (does this make sense?). Does anyone think that this is the best way to go or would public/general transport be a better option? and if so, can someone recommend a bus or train route/company?

Thank you.

Having a car would give you much more flexibility. In Noosa itself you really do not need one apart from going to the national park, but even that is walkable. The flexibility you would get is in the traveling time. You could detour to any of the beaches on the way, stop in at the etamouga pub, detour to Australia World if you desired.

I agree that driving is the way to go to Noosa. There are some lovely places you can see on the way and while in the area. Glass House Mountains, Mooloolaba, some great beaches along the coast. Eumundi markets (if a Wed or Sat) are also worth a stop, maybe the ginger factory at Buderim.

Public transport is not good to the area and will limit your sight-seeing.

I agree you need a car. Visit Buderim by all means ..it is a nice "little" place looking over Maroochydore but NOT to see the Ginger Factory it has been relocated to Eumundi to which you can detour if you are on Bruce Highway.
Going home you may like to follow the Coast Road and come back on to Bruce Highway further down.

Remember we drive on different side of the road...be careful on round a bouts.

Hi, a car is definitely the best way to get to Noosa from Brisbane - the closest train station is far away and the bus service while OK is infrequent.

The national park walk is a must but can take some time depending on how far you go - see if you can spot a Koala in the trees. Otherwise, a walk along Hastings Street amongst the boutiques and restaurants and a dip in the ocean will fill your day.

By the way Marg, the Ginger Factory was in Yandina the last time I looked! (sorry!). Either way, time would be limited on a day trip from Brisbane to include it

Yes you are right of course...Al2401 I will confuse the IP

No wonder I couldn't find the ginger factory when I was passing through Buderim earlier this year. I will have to try and find it on my way back home in November - I used to love the place....all that lovely ginger.

Travel Tips for Brisbane

Wine Appreciation in Brisbane

by pedroswift

Interested in increasing your knowledge of wine? Taking part in regular tastings of a variety of wine? Enjoying dinners with a wine focus? Doing trips to explore wine making areas?
Brisbane residents should give consideration to joining a club that fosters all of the above.

One such group is the Wine Guild of Australia Queensland Inc. Sounds a little daunting but there were once groups in in each state of Australia promoting the proper service of wine as well as promoting the product itself. This was back in the late sixties when dry table wine was just starting to make its mark in Australia.

Today the emphasis is on members' education although the Guild still presents a trophy for Best Wine Waiter in the Hotels of Australia Annual Awards (or some such). No matter what your present wine knowledge is, the Guild will welcome you as a member.

Monthly club nights, Master classes on particular wine styles and the previously mentioned activities can all be enjoyed by Guild members.

Brisbane Tip

by Krystynn

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the LARGEST koala sanctuary in the entire Australian continent - the LONE PINE SANCTUARY right here in sunny Brisbane.

While you're here, feel free to cuddle Australia's most loved ambassador... no, NOT yourself... it's the Koala Bear.

You may also be tempted to feed some tall typically Aussie animals known as Emus; or the graceful Kangaroos and lazy Wallabies.

Oh, and don't forget to make friends with the friendly Wombats, Tasmanian Devils, Dingoes and Possums (a real nocturnal creature like...ahem... YOU) and the many other Aussie animals on display. :-)

Photo Below: No, that's not a koala bear that I'm trying to feed... It's actually another great Australian animal - the adorable Kangeroo. Join us??

SUNCORP STADIUM - OLD LANG PARK

by balhannah

The Home Of Rugby League!

This World class stadium is the place to come and experience the game of Rugby.
The Stadium can hold 52,500 people. Games to be seen are Brisbane Broncos, Queensland Reds, Brisbane Roar, State of Origin, Rugby Union Tests, Rugby League and Football Internationals and Concerts.

On State of Origin nights, the stands are full, this is a very popular event, when the "best" of Queensland [Maroons] are playing against the "best" of New South Wales [blues] over a series of three games to win the "State of Origin" shield.

If you don't wish to witness a game, then perhaps a tour may be of interest. There are tours of the Stadium on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30am starting from the Stadium Store and lasting approx 1.5hours.
This provides information on the Stadium, from its days as a cemetery, through its time as Lang Park until today.
It is a chance to gain access to areas usually only accessed by Stadium Members, media personalities and elite sportsmen.

Tickets are purchased at the Stadium store... the Nothern Plaza (Caxton St end)

Adult $12.50 and students/concessions price is $7.50.
Tickets for all events held at Suncorp Stadium can be purchased through Ticketek on 132 849.

TO GET TO SUNCORP STADIUM.........
Your Suncorp Stadium event ticket entitles you to travel free, to and from matches, on the Queensland Rail Citytrain rail and Brisbane Transport bus networks. Simply present your event admission ticket for verification to rail and bus staff as you board their services. Remember, no event ticket - no free travel! This free travel offer applies from 9:00 am to the last scheduled service on game day, and excludes QR Trainlink services.

It is best to use Public Transport!

Climbing at the Kangaroo Cliffs

by thedouglas

Rock climing and abseiling on the sheer face of the Kangaroo Point cliffs is a very popular weekend activity in Brisbane - and there are plenty of courses for beginners available. There are a few places along the cliffs where we regularly see groups of learners and more experience climbers training. Just depends on whether you prefer to start at the top or the bottom!

There are various courses available, for kids as well as adults. No need for equipment, as its all provided as part of the course. You just have to dress sensibly for hanging off the side of a rockface with dozens of peering onlookers!

Bribie Island

by aussirose

We were going to hire a boat but unfortunately they were closed at the time. Anyway if you do, then the hire place is just before the Bribie Island bridge on your left. You don't need anything big because the water is very calm. But on the other side of the island it is full surf. When I was little we used to prefer the other side for a good body bash in the waves :o)
