To ensure everyone can attend and have a stress free time there will be a free ‘Park and Ride’ shuttle bus operating from 9am to 4pm to help people visit all areas on the day. The bus will run in a continual 20 minute circuit from the Cooroy Railway Station stopping at Cooroy State School, Emerald Street, the Scout Den, the Lower Mill site, Cooroy Library and the RSL Memorial Hall.

To add to the exciting program of events, the Cooroy Wood and Craft Show and the Noosa District Orchid and Foliage Society Mother’s Day Show will also be held on the same day.
