**Secret Road Trips**
I've lived on the Sunshine Coast all my life and I will reveal hidden gems worth visiting for day trips, picnics, places to see and things to do on our wonderful Coast, Australia and the world!
Secret Road Trips on the Sunshine Coast
Do you live on the Sunshine Coast? Or are you visiting over the Easter holidays in 2014? Here is the perfect guide for discovering some little-known places worthy of exploration.
Mt Tinbeerwah Lookout
A secret lookout exists, obviously known to locals, but it is not visited as much as those on the major tourists routes. You kind of have to be a local or be told about it to know it's there.
Visitors to the Sunshine Coast will love this place
You may have passed it on your way to Noosa from Cooroy, but there is a better way to find it, a prettier way. And we are on a day road-trip after all.

Commence journey: Eumundi Total travel time approx: 1 hour including walk
Why not start your day trip at the popular Eumundi markets before heading to our secret lookout? Or if it's not market day, stop for a coffee at Berkelouw Book Barn & Cafe - a bookshop reminiscent of the good old days where rare books were easily found.
Leave Eumundi via the main street heading north along Caplick Way which veers to the right. Take the second left onto Eumundi Range Road. Enjoy the rolling hills of the Sunshine Coast Eumundi Hinterland as you take a right in 3.5km at Sunrise Road.
View from Mt Tinbeerwah Lookout
You're in the country now. After travelling for 10 minutes along Sunrise Road, you will reach an intersection with Cooroy-Noosa Road (Route 6). Cross over this road in a dog-leg onto Tinbeerwah Road. At the end of this road you will find our secret lookout.
It is a steady but relatively easy walk up to the lookout. It is not suitable for wheelchairs or those with mobility issues. Public toilets are located at the car park before the climb to the lookout.
Abseilers and mountain climbers often use this site and you may be lucky enough to see them at work when you visit.
The views into valley below, and east to Noosa are nothing short of spectacular.
