Day Trip Yandina - Eumundi Sunshine Coast

Day Trip Yandina – Eumundi, Sunshine Coast, Queenslan. Australia

If you have a strong attachment to your boots and beanies, you’re probably in the wrong place. Even though this is technically our ‘coldest time of year’, our balmy days are still hot, hot, and hotter than most places around the world in the height of summer. We again headed north to The Sunshine Coast, which is home to some of Queensland's favourite events and festivals, from marathons and triathlons across the beautiful Sunshine Coast beaches to food and wine festivals, outdoor cinemas and more local markets than any other cities in the state. 

This was our first time attending Yandina Plant & Produce Market, which boasts approximately 100+ stalls on an average market day, with close to half of those being plants, fruits and vegetables of one variety or another, renowned for being the largest plant market on the coast. We browsed through to find food, fresh produce, bric-a-brac, second-hand treasures, collectables, clothes shoes, books, toys and a stack. 

The Yandina Markets are a real-deal country farmers market and was quite busy and this weekend had plenty to stores to browse a few hours. From the markets we headed to one of Yandina’s most popular tourist attractions, The Ginger Factory, which offers visitors a plethora of options from local produce, nature, cute heritage style villages and more. 

The most iconic thing you can obviously do is the Buderim Ginger Factory tour. During this tour you can find out how the local ginger is grown, processed and turned into the wide array of products that Buderim Ginger sells. After the tour you can try a tasting of the various product lines and find out why the Ginger Factory produces the finest ginger in the world. Kim checked out the Ginger shop, where you can buy anything ginger. 

Ginger beer, chews, dried ginger, crystallised ginger and so much more, there’s sure to be something which will tickle your fancy. Just across the road from the Ginger Factory is Nutworks. Visitors are welcome to uncover the history and health benefits of Australia's macadamia nut, view chocolates and roasting nuts being made and taste the delicious samples on offer. There's an amazing array of unique and boutique macadamias, chocolate and confectionery, including beautiful packaged gifts and hampers. Just besides Nutworks you can treat your taste buds with coffee from one of the original small batch specialty coffee roasters on the Sunshine Coast. Pioneer Coffee Roastery is an award-winning small batch specialty coffee roaster and their coffee  from standard House Blends to  carefully selected Single Origins,  are lovingly roasted on-site using Diedrich IR 12 roaster.

We then headed a few k’s up the highway to The Eumundi Markets, which is Australia's biggest and best art, craft and produce market, held every Saturday and Wednesday of the year (rain, hail or shine) in the heart of the charming historic hinterland town of Eumundi on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Eumundi may be a small town but it is big in character with a range of fun things to see and do including the Eumundi Markets, brewery and numerous boutique stores. Any Wednesday or Saturday of the year around 10,000 locals, interstate and international tourists come to enjoy the atmosphere, the fun and of course the multitude of arts, crafts and produce on display, over 300 stalls of them in fact, as well as music and street theatre. There are plenty of other things to do in Eumundi including art galleries, hiking and beautiful scenic views making it a perfect destination for a day trip from the Sunshine Coast’s coastal regions.
