Hunchy Hideaway August Newsletter

Hi Everyone, It’s just heartwarming to read your comments on our facebook page, we love hearing about the highlights of your visits to Hunchy Hideaway. The weather is warming up – it is beautiful here at Hunchy.

In our August edition we have added some more ideas on what to do when you return to us … from finding each other in a maze, sampling strawberries to riding Harleys.

At Bellingham Maze you can lose yourselves and meet up in the hidden fountain. The sound of the water leads you further in – but watch out for the dead ends – there is only one correct way. It’s just a few minutes drive fromStrawberry Fields, and if you haven’t picked strawberries straight from the patch – now is the time. Absolutely luscious, you can fill your tray and there’s plenty of lawn for a picnic. Stop in at their cafe – we definitely recommend the strawberry icecreams and the chocolate coated strawberries look divine.

While you are out that way stop in at Aussie World- it’s not just for the kids. They have loads of rides to choose from and are guaranteed to get you soaked, dizzy or the heart pumping! Plus you can check out the Aussie charm of the Ettamogah Pub. You can combine the three attractions for a great Sunshine Coast day.

Foodies will enjoy the Eumundi Food Fest on August 12 and Maleny’s Real Food Festival, on September 8 – great days to sample our local produce. Also add Father’s Day to your calendar (September 2) – wouldn’t he enjoy a weekend with Mum at Hunchy more than hankies and aftershave? The longweekend  is coming up, and we still have availability for you to secure a September escape.

Father and son run the business, Dave tells us “We offer many tour options, ranging from one hour to half-day, from coastal cruises to hinterland explorers. We know all the scenic roads and out of the way places – visitors love that we give them a different experience of the Sunshine Coast.”
