Maroochy River Tours and Boat Hire

If you are after an extremely relaxing few hours on the river then look no further than Cruise Maroochy. Recently taken over by the very friendly husband and wife duo, Shorty and Sandra. They will take you away from the hustle and bustle of every day life to explore the abundance of nature along the Maroochy River on the Sunshine Coast.

Heading towards Mt Coolum on the Blue Laguna with Cruise Maroochy

The trip takes you past a vast array of  bird life as well as flora and fauna. On the Nature Cruise and the Eco Cruise the boat mores up for a short break, this gives you some time to explore the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary. There is a great board walk which takes you right into the heart of the wetlands. Here you can get up close and personal with the inhabitants.

Board Walk at the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary

The boat is fully licensed which means you can enjoy a lovely cold drink on the top deck of the Blue Lagona while you listen to natures chorus. On the Nature Cruise and Eco Cruise morning tea is provided and on the Eco Cruise you will also receive a sensational BBQ cooked on board.

This boat is also available for hire for large parties for private charters, corporate events or weddings.

Great review for the Seaview Resort

We love it when guest give us feedback, good or bad. This is the best way we can improve our service and make sure we offer the best possible holiday experience to our guests.

This is the latest review from a very happy guest on Trip Advisor

“Family getaway to sunny coast”

Our room on Level 12 was very modern and very tastefully furbished with all the latest mod. cons including dishwasher & dryer. Never stayed up this high before as thought it would be too noisy but found this not to be so with the view being excellent which will have us wanting to go higher not lower in future. Tried just about all amenities including sauna, pool, tennis court, pool table and games and found all great – kept the kids amused. Also were able to bring along our own games and hook up to TV/DVD. The service was good – we had a problem with DVD remote control not working and shower rose problems. These issues were resolved and dealt with promptly. Service was efficient and friendly. Enjoyed the excellent location of resort & being so close to beach & shops meant not having to drive the car much at all as we could walk to most locations, even had a supermarket just around the corner. This was our 2nd stay in the last few years and we have no hesitation in recommending this resort to others and would be very happy to stay here again.

Head to the Buderim Ginger Factory on the Sunshine Coast for a Great Day Out

Ginger Factory Yandina

The sun was shinning and  I had a day off with no plans, so I decided to head to the Buderim Ginger Factory in Yandina. I was pleasantly surprised.  There is plenty to do, so if you go for a visit make sure you have a few hours.

First I was taken on a Taste of Ginger Tour and shown the different stages of growing though to production. At the end they give you a taster of the different ways in which you can use ginger in cooking. My favourite was the Ginger soaked pineapple.

I just missed the train ride so decided to walk around the beautiful gardens full of wild ginger plants and then had a look round their quaint shops which included a macadamia nut shop, a toy shop, a scent shop and an Australian souvenir shop with dead toad wallets!!!

Next was the Superbee Live Bee Show. This was really interesting learning about the life of a bee and its hive. This also ended with honey tasting.

If this wasn’t enough they also have a train ride that takes you through the beautiful gardens, an indoor boat ride for the youngsters and cooking classes.

If you are staying on the Shinshine Coast, the Ginger Factory is not to be missed.

Harry’s on Buderim

Harrys on Buderim

We had another birthday in the family last night so decided to try Harry’s on Buderim. The restaurant is set in one of Buderim’s earliest build homes dating back to 1880. The building was moved to it present location and loving resorted in 1990.

As we had booked a table for 7pm, it was dark when we arrived. I plan to take a trip back during the day to look at the beautiful building and its surroundings by day.

The food was amazing and we where extremely well looked after by owner/manager and his son. We where informed that in the colder month the dinning is moved inside to the Fire Room for a really cosy intimate experience.

Sunshine Coast Wedding Restaurant Venues

Harry’s on Buderim is a definitely a beautiful Buderim Sunshine Coast Restaurant, great for all occasions and Weddings.
