If it's a back-to-nature escape you're after, a new trekking experience is allowing couples the chance to walk with nature and sleep in luxury in Queensland's Sunshine Coast.
Tropical Treks and Montville’s Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat have teamed up to offer a small-group, three-day Luxe Trekking package that includes a full-day guided walk in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, two nights’ accommodation in a rainforest pavilion, gourmet local-produce breakfasts, a dinner in Montville and a BBQ dinner at Narrows.
Located near the charming locality of Montville, Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat sits adjacent to the Hinterland Great Walk. Decked out with king-size beds and spa baths, each of its pavilions are incredibly private and are surrounded by rainforest.
The guided walk is a true sensory experience that takes in the rainforest’s rich array of sights, sounds and smells. Walks take place along sections of the aptly named 58km Hinterland Great Walk, which rambles its way over the peaks and ravines of the Blackall Range, linking several parks and reserves, including Kondalilla National Park, Mapleton Falls National Park and Mapleton Forest Reserve.
The package is available for $1600 per couple. Optional spa treatments, either in-house or at local day spas, and transfers to/from Brisbane, Sunshine Coast or Gold Coast airports can be arranged. To make a booking or find out more, call (07) 5478 5000.
