Small-Group Private Tour

Who are we?

What to expect

If you like the idea of a sophisticated tour of the Sunshine Coast, consider our High Tea Sunshine Coast tour. This is a great tour option for foodies and nature lovers. You can take in the scenery to build an appetite for superb food and drink. From luxurious venues with delightful gardens to scenic spots offering delicious treats.

This is an excellent way for you to take an unforgettable private high tea tour to soak in the scenery and enjoy great food and wine.



  • Enjoy a stop at the breath-taking Mapleton Falls
  • Savour a tapas high tea at the luxurious Flaxton Gardens
  • Explore luxury handmade chocolates at the picture-postcard village of Montville
  • Sample some fine locally made cheese at Maleny Cheese Co
  • Taste wine at The Barrel at Clouds Vineyard.

Grab your best friends and dive into this unforgettable Sunshine Coast Hinterland High Tea tour we’ve specially created for people who love good food, good wine and spectacular scenery.

You’ll travel in comfort through stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland where you’ll stop to marvel at the breathtaking rainforest canopy at the Mapleton Falls, one of the true gems of the Hinterland. This will give you an appetite for your first foodie stop – a tapas high tea (traditional with a modern twist) with all the trimmings at the luxurious Flaxton Gardens, with its coastal views stretching from Noosa to Moreton Island.

Once you’ve refuelled with delicate cakes and savouries, it’s off to the picture-postcard village of Montville. Here you’ll be invited to select five different chocolates to complete your sample box of delicious luxury chocolate handmade by Montville’s artisan chocolatier at Chocolate Country.

From here we move on to our next stop with a visit to Maleny Cheese for a mouth-watering cheese platter, sampling some of the finest locally made cheeses in the region. Using only pure hinterland milk, Maleny Cheese crafts a boutique cheese range that includes Cheddar, Feta Style and Soft Cheese.

Your next treat for the day is a select wine tasting hosted by The Barrel at Clouds Vineyard. Settle in and buckle up as your wine flight takes you on a journey that covers four different wines from the Granite Belt region of Queensland.

To end the day one final stop is in order, a time to collect your thoughts, look out in wonder, gaze off into the distance, take a few group snaps and be inspired by the imposing natural beauty that is the Glass House Mountains as seen from Mary Cairncross Rainforest Reserve

From here we will return you safely to where we first met for your day of indulgence; and yes, it is ok to have a small yawn by now.

Maleny Cheese

With the sweet smell of chocolate still tempting your olfactory nerves, it’s time for something a little savoury, and what better than the mouthwatering taste of cheese. This time we stop by Maleny Cheese to wade through the flavours that make up their range of boutique cheeses. Served as a tasting platter with a selection of accompaniments, these handcrafted cheeses pay homage to the time-honoured traditions of cheese making and pure local milk; the true taste of this special region.

Clouds Vineyard  @ The Barrel

Our next stop sees us paying a visit to The Barrel at Clouds Vineyard. Here we set you off on a flight, a wine flight that is. Showcasing wines from the Granite Belt region of Queensland and crafted especially with Clouds in mind. Your first stopover will be Chardonnay, following on to Rosè, then moving to Shiraz, with the final stop at Merlot.   Each flight comes with tasting notes to help you identify those subtle aromas and notes, teasing your nose and running across your pallet. Once you are safely back on the ground we move to our final stop on this day of indulgence.

That little yawn you had along the way, we barely noticed.

Mary Cairncross Rainforest Reserve.

In just moments from leaving Clouds, we arrive at Mary Cairncross Rainforest Reserve, our final stop for the day. With the backdrop of the iconic Glass House Mountains in the frame, the only thing missing is you. It’s time to come together to capture all of you one last time before we return you to where we first met at the beginning of the day. So grab those cameras or mobiles, as we make the most of this photo opportunity and create another memory for you to take with you from the day.

Ready –  wine, chocolate, CHEESE!
