Discover the Noosa Hinterland
The Noosa Hinterland stretches from Doonan to Eumundi, out to Kin Kin and Cooran, and to the edge of Mary Valley. Within this sphere of wonderment is escapism at its finest!
We’ve picked three little towns (Pomona, Eumundi and Cooroy), tucked away in the Noosa Hinterland and less than 40 minutes from Little Cove Court. We’ve chosen a selection of delights for you to visit in each town. All you need is plenty of time…
Snuggled at the base of Mount Cooroora, Pomona is aptly named after the Roman goddess of fruit trees, gardens and orchards. The town has a gorgeous collection of heritage buildings set within beautiful surroundings, so come and sample the old country vibe mixed with a new creativity. Pomona is just 30 minutes’ drive from Noosa.
Pomona Distilling Co
The Pomona Distilling Co is more than just a distillery, it’s about presenting the enchanting village of Pomona to the world and unique small-batch spirits focused on quality rather than quantity. Master Distiller and owner, Robin Yates has been crafting this concept for 40 years. Born out of his passion for the alchemy of spirits while studying to be an Industrial Chemist and distilling in the back of the chemistry lab.
Robin experiments with gin blends using native organic botanicals, some foraged straight from his Pomona farm. Join the Pomona community and get a taste of their spirit and pride through the venue’s rich heritage and history. Their story is a testament to respecting and loving the environment, people and fine, smooth Gin.
Set in the original Pomona Bakery, dating back to the early 1900’s, you can indulge in earthy food inspired by Thai street food flavours in the Bistro. Celebrate in the Garden bar, featuring an art gallery, stunning timber arbour, wine cellar and rustic Stillhouse – home to an enchanting 200L copper still!
