A short bush retreat in the forest behind Noosa Civic.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walkers, prams, wheelchairs, recreational cyclists or mountain bikers It’s an easy flat grade.

HIGHLIGHTS
Ended up at Noosa’s Civic Shopping Centre and want a quick outdoor diversion? This is perfect. You can walk, cycle or drive to the end of Hoffman drive in minutes, and then through a gorgeous little forest path. You can also park at the roundabout at the other side (before they build a road here), and even duck down to the secluded Eenie Creek.

AFTERWARDS
There’s plenty more bushland to be found close by (see map). Or you can pop back to Noosa Civic, to Belmondos on Rene Street for great coffee or to nearby Bunnings for a BBQ snag any day of the week to support a worthy cause. There are also two new boutique breweries less than 1 km away.

HOW TO GET THERE
To the starting point: From Noosa Civic, take Hoffman Drive (starts near the Caltex Service Station) and drive to the end where there are parking spaces. Or start from Noosa Civic, or some point in Rene Street.

To the end point: The end point is the same as your starting point.
