11. Eumundi Markets

After a bit more research, direct trains from Brisbane to Eumundi are limited but there are more services getting the train to Nambour and then a connecting bus.

This website I love Eumundi markets has very good information detailing public transport bus/train times as well as connecting buses from Eumundi to Noosa Heads

ARRIVE: Eumundi at 7:50am, 8:35am, 9:20am, 9:30am, 10:30am and 11:30am.

It looks like it isn't possible to combine Eumundi and Noosa on the same day as the last bus departs Noosa Heads at 10.55am. Unless there is another bus service but I would very much doubt it. So I'd have to go to Eumundi on the Wednesday and Noosa Heads on another day. I haven't written up the Saturday timetable as there are more services on the Wednesdays.

Hire Car v. Public Transport
Eumundi is just over an hour north of Brisbane along the Bruce Highway Sunshine Coast and is 20kms west of Noosa. Perhaps it might be worth while hiring a car for two days, that way I can stop at other places along the way and detour back through other village in the hinterland.
