ARRIVING at Eumundi in the early morning, thick fog hovered over the town centre as the overnight rain cleared. I entered the markets which were full of stalls and canvas tents set up in earlier hours and now trading. Quite a crowd was gathering as I explored the different stalls selling everything imaginable, all hand crafted in the local area. This is impressively a world famous market with an amazing variety.

As the morning began to wear on, several local musicians set up and started playing, adding to the bustling atmosphere of the markets. Above the markets the town centre was bustling too.

After thoroughly exploring the market, I headed through the town centre and continued turning off at Eumundi Range Road following the wide footpath through lush green grass for about two kilometres before reaching the bridge crossing the railway line, as far as I could get. From here I returned to the town centre and drove back along the road to past the railway bridge and turning off along Sunrise Road. From there I managed to walk back to the railway bridge, then follow Sunrise Road along its length. There was no footpath but the grass verge on either side of the road was short the entire distance winding its way through the hills. Eventually the road bent around to the left and I passed a sign leaving Sunshine Coast and entering Noosa Shire. From here it was just a couple more kilometres to the edge of Tewantin National Park, where the thick forest decended a moderately steep slope down to the basin of Noosa Valley.

It was already mid afternoon, so from here I drove into nearby Tewantin to pick up my camping tickets for the Cooloola Wilderness Trail, then returned to the Bruce Highway continuing northward to Gympie, and turning off along the long road towards Rainbow Beach, reaching Mullen's Carpark at the start of the trail just on sunset. Here I stayed the night for an early start tomorrow.
