We will walk to Sunshine Beach and return, 10.8km coastal walk, it is a nice distance to start with because there is so many beautiful lookouts and beaches to stop if required. Highly recommend swimming and getting lunch in Noosa to finish as a reward for the effort. Finish well before lunchtime.

Friday 24th 2pm to Sunday 26th 10am Our first multi-day hike, Gheerulla Loop, 23km in 3 days, Start and finish on Delicia Rd, Mapleton. This track is part of the Sunshine Coast Great Walk. I have chosen this destination for the exit points, the ease of access for the first and last day, and the beautiful scenery for Saturday. This is a moderately challenging walk, it will test you, as a beginner, especially with a heavy backpack but remember we will have done a lot of preparation, this is why you are doing this program!
