1. Queensland: Sunshine Coast Tour with Lunch and Drinks
Hear about the method of cider known as champagne-style cider, meet a fifth-generation cider maker, and try traditional mead as you cruise around the Sunshine Coast’s stunning scenery on a day-tasting tour. Begin your tour by visiting the cozy Cellar Door at Sunshine Coast Cider. Learn about the cider-making process directly from the maker and enjoy sampling some of the cider that’s made on-site. Next, drive through the spectacular scenery of Noosa’s Hinterland to the alternative town of Pomona, nestled at the foot of Mt Cooroora. Arrive at the boutique Amrita Park Meadery. Try some of their award-winning mead and see over 50 species of native plants on the beautiful grounds. Head to the Imperial Hotel, also home to the Eumundi Distillery and Eumundi Brewery. Enjoy a delicious lunch and time to relax. Discover the range of gins distilled there, which use the finest juniper, botanicals, and local Cooroy Mountain spring water to create the excellent Folktale Gin range. Enjoy a scenic drive back to Noosa for your final experience, the Fortune Distillery at Land and Sea Brewery. Explore the brewery’s craft beer and award-winning fine spirits made from local ingredients.
