Sunday Wanderers
Sunshine Coast

Most weekends the Sunday Wanderers set out on a walking adventure.

So far we have
- climbed Mount Coolum, - descended to Kondalilla Falls, - hiked through the Noosa National Park, - lost our way inside the Buderim Forest, - strolled through the Maroochy Botanical Gardens, - ambled around the Currimundi Foreshore Reserve, and - skipped along the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast.

Our numbers vary from six to sixteen walkers. Some want to climb a hill, others prefer to canter, but most of us saunter along at a gentle pace. Whatever your preference, there is bound to be a walk to suite your needs.

We usually stop somewhere for a coffee, a quite ale, or even a meal.

Check the Lively50plus website toward the end of the week to see if a walk has been scheduled for the coming Sunday. The details will be posted as a comment. We also send an email to members who have registered on our list of Sunday Wanderers. Please let me know if you would like your name added.

The start time will vary depending on the season.

We are always looking for new ideas so let me know if you would like to lead a walk.

Heads up on the wanders next exciting adventure next Sunday.

Cruising down the Noosa River on a Sunday afternoon. No paddling required!!!! Hope for a glorious sunset.

Date: 1 October 2017

Meeting Point: 186 Gympie Terrace Noosaville,+Noosaville
Next to a massive huge white yellow and black Pelican. About 10 mtrs tall you can't miss it!

Walk Time: 3.45 pm for a short stroll along the river shores

Cruise Departs: 4.30 pm....near the said Massive Huge Pelican at Noosaville

Cost: $25 per person BYO Nibbles and drinkies... Or when YOU book you can pay for additional 'package' which is $13 additional dollars. Totally up to you. Information on the Noosa River and Canal Cruise website.

1. You need to book individually / privately with Noosa River and Canal Cruises. Sorry we are not a booking service :)

2. On the booking tab you will need to nominate a pickup Gympie Terrace Noosaville as the pickup point.

3. Dinner...afterward the cruise if anyone desires. There are gazillion restaurants along Gympie Road Noosaville.

4. The reason we are telling you all this a week before is because you may have to get in early to book. Cruise departs rain hail or sunshine. We have 'ordered' sunshine...not sure on our abilities to convince the weather.

NOTE: Gympie Terrace Noosaville not the Marina. :)

We reckon that just about covers it. However our phone number is 0417 843 543 or email us.
