The perfect Hinterland recovery day

18 Oct 2018

After a hard day of running, swimming and riding it’s important to take some time out and let your body recover.

Forget the ice baths and hours of stretching and schedule in some well-deserved pampering and nourishment against the beautiful backdrop of the Glass House Mountains and Sunshine Coast Hinterland!

Treat yourself to a rejuvenating and reenergising massage. Head over to the Hinterland heaven of Spa Anise at Spicers Tamarind Retreat in Maleny and get ready for a serious dose of luxury. Starting with a foot soak, followed by a dip in the hydro pool, and then a full-body massage complete with a personalised playlist, your body will feel brand new again.

Then stretch out the legs with a chilled walk as you grab your clubs and visit picturesque Nambour Golf Club. The course is open 7 days a week, having a stocked Golf Shop and motorised buggies for hire if your legs are not quite up for it yet. There are also nets at the entrance to practice your swing as well as a practice green behind the pro-shop.

Or if an adrenaline rush is still on the cards, the Big Kart Track is where you can blow off some steam. With tracks designed for little kiddies right up to the big Kids, this is where you can race your friends around a 1.2 km track full of sweeping bends, tight chicanes, sharp hairpins and long fast straights. There are even night racing and wet weather racing options. It is sure to be an experience you will never forget.

Something that is always a good idea is to refuel, and why not do it in style? Served on the terrace or in the beautiful grounds of Flaxton Gardens, their luxury high tea will have you salivating as you celebrate with a glass of well-earned bubbles and a selection of three delicate sweets and three savory treats per person.

Or for something more substantial, hidden in the rolling hills of the Hinterland you will find Brouhaha Brewery. Your meals here are made with the freshest, locally sourced produce to ensure the best of the Sunshine Coast is served on your plate. Then wash it all down with a tasting paddle of their award-winning craft beers, brewed right on site, with their new take-away cans available to bring home a great momento.
