Day 1

Brisbane – Boreen Point – Pomona – Gympie
Our coach departs Brisbane mid-morning and travels to the Noosa Shire’s historic Apollonian Hotel. Enjoy lunch at this historic hotel located in the lush Cooloola country at Boreen Point, on the shore of Lake Cootharaba. Next we visit the Majestic Theatre in Pomona, one of the few pre-World War II picture theatres remaining in Queensland that has not been demolished or adapted for other uses. It is also Queensland’s longest continuously operating picture theatre. Here you will be treated to a popular silent film. Laugh, cry, shout, stamp and sing along with the comedy, drama and romance as you are transported back to the golden age of silent cinema. Continue on to Gympie, settling into our motel for the next four nights.
