Join Sunshine Coast Foodie for an authentic Noosa Country Drive experience! Your day will begin from Noosa Heads, where an air conditioned bus will take you through the scenic Noosa Hinterland to Waterford Park. Waterford Park is a place of great beauty set in 60 acres of rainforest and sunny pasture amongst wildlife with pristine private walking tracks.

At Waterford Park you will be greeted by your host Sunshine Coast Foodie Martin Duncan, who will introduce you to his favourite local growers from Country Noosa and the surrounding Mary Valley before sitting down for a locally inspired lunch. Your lunch will hero bounty from our region over a feast created by local Chef Dan Penfold, served with matched wines in the conservatory overlooking the lake.
