Off Beat Tours

A unique fun-filled journey off the beaten track, enjoying exclusive access to one of the world’s last remaining subtropical rainforests. Experience nature at its awesome and majestic best in the Conondale National Park; over 34,000 hectares of rainforest wilderness within the mountainous Conondale Range. Situated in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, the park is an hour’s scenic drive from coastal beach resorts, mountain cascades, waterfalls and spectacular gorges.

Relax for a day in the peace and tranquillity of this unique environment. Enjoy the personalised service, away from tedious crowds and busy schedules. You will be transported in purpose built four wheel drive luxury to the oxygen factory of the Sunshine Coast; to places where no one else will take you; to see wonders that no one else can show you. Millions of plants, some pre-dating the age of the dinosaurs, form the basis of a living, breathing wilderness; a mosaic of insects, mammals and reptiles.

Your knowledgeable and humorous guide will take you to little known areas to observe rare and endangered flora and fauna, as you stroll through nature’s wonderland. Tour groups often wander down to a secluded rock pool under a cascading waterfall for a refreshing swim, or maybe just to listen to the sound of the tinkling water in a clear mountain stream.

Lunch, served in a secluded spot under the rainforest canopy, is also a feast for the senses; chilled sparkling wine with nibbles of local seafood and cheeses, followed by a main of marinated chicken and beef, accompanied by a variety of fresh salads, savoured with a wonderfully crisp Semillon chardonnay. No need to scrimp on this tour!

So if you give a day of your time to Off Beat Tours, they will give you the magic of the rainforest and a lifetime of memories.
