    Embark on an immersive journey with “Ride Back in Time”. Experience Queensland’s heritage with a nostalgic train ride, visit the Ipswich Historical Society, savour a historic lunch, and more. Join us for a day of unforgettable memories.

    What To Expect

    Get ready to be whisked away on an extraordinary adventure that promises not just a day out, but a journey through time, culture, and camaraderie. The Funtastic Tour Company, your trusted companion in curating unforgettable experiences for the vibrant over 50s, invites you to a meticulously planned day tour that caters to every interest and passion.

    Starting your day with the convenience and care of door-to-door pick-up and drop-off between Maroochydore and Caloundra, we ensure your journey begins and ends on a note of comfort. Enjoy a warm cup of coffee at our comfort stop at BP Burpengary, setting the tone for a day filled with exploration and enjoyment.

    Our next destination, the Ipswich Historical Society at the Cooneana Heritage Centre, is a treasure trove of history waiting to be discovered. Wander through six architecturally significant buildings that span the 1860s to the 1970s, each telling its own story of the past. Witness the Spinners, Weavers, Fibre Artisans of Ipswich, the Ipswich Genealogical Society, and the Cooneana Blacksmiths bring history to life right before your eyes. Indulge in the nostalgia with a trackless train ride and old-fashioned games, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

    The indulgence continues as we dine at the Brookwater Golf Course and Country Club, where a sumptuous 1-course lunch awaits. Savour the flavours and relish the company of like-minded adventurers, making every moment count.

    Our journey doesn’t end here. Post-lunch, embark on a Great Houses Heritage drive, a homage to the local community’s rich history. Marvel at heritage-listed houses and immerse yourself in the stories they hold, a true testament to the area’s cultural heritage.

    At The Funtastic Tour Company, we believe in creating experiences that are not just trips but are journeys of joy, learning, and unforgettable memories. Tailored specifically for the mature traveller seeking adventure and camaraderie, our tours promise comfort, fun, and a sense of belonging.
