In 2013 Lisa Blainey-Lewin created & tested six different local food bus routes for us visiting our fabulous local food providers all over the Sunshine Coast. One of those routes, the Maleny, Montville tour was so popular during 2014 with Lisa at the helm we partnered with Lynn from Mystic Mountain Tours, Karen & Richard from Montville Coffee, Sara & Markus of Maleny Cheese Factory, Chris & Jodi from Pomodoras on Obi, Pete & Belinda of Wild Rocket at Misty’s, Matilda from Gourmet Afrika, Ross Hopper of Maleny Dairies and the volunteers from Maleny Visitor Information Centre to bring you the same tour each month.
This ran until October 2014 when we ceased our subsidy of the tours and Lisa began running them and new food tours under a new business Food Tale Tours.
In April 2015 Lisa sold the tours to Lynn from Mystic Mountain Tours who continues to run them today both as scheduled tours and smaller private tours.
We are very proud to have played a part in establishing local food tours on the Sunshine Coast.
