Maroochy River Trail
Today I discovered part of The Maroochy River trail. I was out taking photos of Dunethin Rock where many years ago I rode horses and I found the trail.
Maroochy River Trail
Maroochy River kayaking
"The Maroochy River Trail is part of the Strategy for Regional Recreational Trails in South East Queensland and was funded, in part, through a $500 000 grant from the Queensland Government. Council delivered the trail in partnership with the Queensland Department of Local Government and Planning (formerly the Department of Infrastructure and Planning).
The Maroochy River Trail provides visitors to the Sunshine Coast with another quality outdoor experience, that supports eco-tourism within the regional economy. The trail provides visitors with a journey of discovery through the beautiful river landscape that historically provided residents with a route between the hinterland and the coast."

Churches can be like ATMs
Favorite thing: You can go to church but churches can be like ATMs difficult to find when you need one.
So I have compiled a list on my Buderim page of all the Churches I could find in the Buderim area. So if you are in Maroochydore, Mooloolaba or Cotton Tree you will find Buderim is not far away or my tip will give you a "lead" with telephone numbers.
