What You'll Experience

The tour starts at mid-morning at your chosen pick-up point, relax on the short half-hour drive while our experienced driver takes you through the luscious, spectacular foothills of the Blackall Range, through quaint towns and past awesome lookout points. It’s a pretty drive, all the way there and back.

The Barrel at Clouds Vineyard

Our first stop of the day is at Clouds Vineyard, located up at the magnificently named Bald Knob. The vineyard has inspirational views and the team will welcome you into The Barrel, a barrel-shaped tasting house that’s packed full of opportunities to taste some of the best wines and craft beers in Australia.

Clouds showcase a range of award-winning wines from Granite Ridge, Casley Mt Hutton and Kominos wineries, as well as a choice of exciting beers, such as the exclusive stout “Dark Cloud” brewed specially by their mates at Copperhead Brewery.

King Ludwig’s German Restaurant  -Lunch

After you’ve enjoyed the views, wines, and brews at Clouds, we hope that you’ve worked up an appetite because the next stop is a treat and a half! It’s off toward Maleny for lunch at King Ludwig’s German Restaurant & Bar, where the team will give you a warm welcome. Grab a verandah seat because the views across the Glass Mountains are spectacular!

You don’t find many authentic German restaurants in Australia, never mind the Sunshine Coast, so tuck into Bavarian specialties, washed down with your pick of German beers. The range is extensive so you might find it difficult to choose. Try DAB Dortmund or Altenmünster Marktoberdorf from the Helles range.

Tour Group Lunch Menu. Sunshine Coast Day Tours

If you prefer a Pilsner, go for the Radeberger Dresden or Weltenburger Pils but there are also smoked beers, wheat ales, and Original Kölsch to sample. Don’t forget to check out the specials board for the current guest beer. By the way, it’s not all bratwurst – veggos and vegans have their own delicious menu. Lederhosen optional.

Alternative Lunch Venue – Brouhaha Brewery Maleny

For those wishing to sample some of Sunshine Coast’s finest Craft Beers with lunch, as an Alternative lunch venue, Brouhaha Brewery was Born out of necessity and raised in the Hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. Brouhaha Brewery and Restaurant adopts the principles of its hometown, Maleny. Embracing community, a slower pace and fresh local produce in how they brew their craft beer and create their seasonal menu.

Ricks’s Garage

This is a chilled-out tour, so we don’t prise you from your lunch and throw you into the minibus for your next stop. There’s plenty of time to rest and digest, but don’t get too much of that after-lunch sleepyhead feeling because the next stop on your Wine, Beer & Whisky Trail is upbeat, uptempo, and back-to-the-50s. Rick’s Garage at Palmwoods is a Sunshine Coast institution, and you’ll soon see why. 

It’s the real-deal retro diner, with vintage cars and bikes outside and, inside, vintage rockabilly memorabilia (yeah, trying saying that after a few beers) and 1950s decor just for the fun of it.

Converted from an old petrol station and auto workshop, Rick’s Garage is a perfect way to end your beer and wine trail, because, this time, it’s whisky. Upstairs at Rick’s is an outrageous whisky bar open Fri, Sat & Sun, with over 70 varieties waiting for you as well as some house-infused whiskies doing their thing in oak barrels. 

Wild Card Stop

After Rick’s Garage, we’ll drive you in air-conditioned comfort to either, 10 Toes Brewery, Your Mates, Brouhaha Baringa, Heads of Noosa or The Glasshouse Brewery where you will enjoy a beer-tasting paddle to end the day.

My bridesmaids organised a gin distillery tour through Coast to Hinterland Tours for my Hen’s Weekend. Mark was our guide/driver/expert photographer and helped to make it a wonderful day, maintaining his composure even when 10 women in their thirties started singing WAP in the back of the bus by 1pm.The tour took us to 3 very different distilleries with lunch at Mr Jones & Me, and we left very happy and very full; the meal came with with an entree and main or dessert and main, and the entrees were so large we almost didn’t need the main also!All of the distilleries had great gins, with the first also having cane spirit and rums and the second offering a beer paddle for those that wanted to switch it up. A discount on take home products was available at the first venue as an added benefit!Thanks for a wonderful tour, and we’ll be using Coast to Hinterland again!
Response from the owner: Thank you Trish, lovely recollection of the day and the weather was on our side. We're glad you enjoy our Private Gin Tour...all best on the big day.

Pick up time was prompt infact driver was waiting graciously for us to arrive and introduced himself as Peter. We did the Eumundi Markets trip this was my second time with Hinterland tours who are very easy to book with. Driver was friendly, knowledgeable of the areas he was driving in and pointed out places of interest. Would recommend as there is no parking hassle as Eumundi tends to be a very busy little town on Market days. Would definitely do again.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Debra. Great to see repeat business which is rewarding as a small business. We certainly hope this is not the last time we see on board one of our vehicles. I’ll pass on your comments to Peter. Many thanks for the five star review.

What a great day we had exploring the hinterland. We would never have done it without this tour and Jan was the perfect guide to take us there and give us a very knowledgeable commentary talk as we went. All the stops were great. Best was the cheese mmm no maybe the chocolate. Lunch at Secret was the best. Well done Jan. extra big thanks.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Rhonda for taking the time to leave review. We certainly hope to see you during your next visit to the Sunshine Coast.

What a great day !! We arranged a surprise for our team at The Branding Office and booked our "Xmas Party Tour" with Coast to Hinterland Tours. From our initial inquiry with Grace, to a few inquiries with Mark and then our awesome driver John, it was a very relaxed, enjoyable and great team bonding day. John picked us up on time and we visited Sunshine Coast Cider, Secrets on the Lake, Maleny Chocolate, Clouds The Barrell & Spill Wine Maleny, with John then driving us all back home. Highly recommend the team from Coast to Hinterland Tours, thanks guys, we will be back.
Response from the owner: Thank you Jodi, it was our pleasure and super glad the surprise Xmas party awas a success. We hope to see you next time 😁👍🎅

Absolutely Amazing Tour! 20 stars out of 5!!!Despite my less than positive state of mindthis tour exceeded my expectations in every way. Fantastic communication, wonderfully organised, lots of variety, never a dull moment, unbelievable inclusions (lunch at Secrets At The Lake an absolute standout!!...not taking anything away from the cheese tasting, delicious chocolate and wine!!). Not to mention Jan, our driver and guide, very knowledgeable and happy to share details of not only the places we visited but local history and interesting facts along the way. A special mention to Jans safe and courteous driving during some very inclement weather on steep and narrow Hinterland roads.Cannot recommend this tour enough, both for value for money and for variety of content....dont hesitate....just do it!!!These guys are awesome!!!!
Response from the owner: Mike, it would appear you thoroughly enjoyed our Scenic Food and Wine tour, wonderful to hear. Thank you so much for a glowing review, I've passed on your comments to Jan. We certainly hope to see you next visit.

Jan, our Tour Guide was fabulous! Her knowledge was exceptional.We enjoyed every aspect of the tour but felt that the order of the venues was back to front. It started with a chocolate factory, cheese factory, lunch , and wine tasting.We completely understand that things are done in order of where they are located, but a slight change could be cheese factory, lunch, wine tasting, and then chocolate.I would have loved to hear more about each business by the owner instead of just putting their beautiful food in front of us and walking away.That aside, we had a great day and enjoyed it immensely.Thank you, Jan. We enjoyed having you as our guide, and you made the tour awesome for us.All the best from Mike, Matt, and Paul (The Cheeky Kiwi's).
Response from the owner: Thank you Mike for providing your thoughts as requested by Jan. Happy to say we have fine tuned the itinerary with revised timings and order of visits. We certainly hope to see you next visit.

We had a great private tour with Peter. The tour was varied stopping at a waterfall and other good vantage points of the beautiful Hinterland countryside for pictures. Peter had lots of local info and the tour included wine tasting, schnapps and a filling meal at a German restaurant followed by more drinks at another bar. A good way to sample the lovely area of the central Sunshine Coast.
