In the heart of Queensland Sunshine Coast, where the sun meets the surf and the wheels meet the winding coastal paths, ecoTekkSC has emerged not just as a leader but as a definitive example of excellence in the tourism sector. For two consecutive years, ecoTekkSC has been honoured with the prestigious title of “Best in Queensland” by the Best of Queensland Experiences Program (BoQEP), a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing exceptional e-bike tours that not only showcase the beauty of Queensland but also embody the spirit of adventure that is synonymous with the region.

The Best of Queensland Experiences Program (BoQEP)

Initiated by Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ), the BoQEP is designed to elevate the tourism industry by highlighting operators that offer transformative experiences. These experiences are carefully selected to align with Queensland’s Hero Experiences, ensuring that visitors receive nothing short of exceptional quality during their stay. The recognition of ecoTekkSC in this program underscores our role in promoting sustainable tourism through innovative e-bike tours that appeal to environmentally-conscious travellers seeking unique, eco-friendly ways to explore the Sunshine Coast.

The ecoTekkSC Difference

What truly distinguishes ecoTekkSC from other tourism offerings is not merely our dedication to sustainability, but our  profound capability to craft personalized, memorable tours that connect deeply with everyone who pedals along. This unique approach transcends the typical tourist experience, creating emotional connections with the landscape and offering a profound appreciation for the natural beauty of the region. ecoTekkSC’s e-bike tours unfold across a tapestry of scenic vistas, from the gentle coastal paths of Caloundra to the dramatic cliffs at Moffat Headland, to the Northern Trails long the Coast to Noosa, extending westward into the lush, verdant expanses of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Each route is carefully selected to showcase the diversity of Queensland’s ecosystems, making every journey a discovery of nature’s artworks.

From the gentle coastal paths of Caloundra’s Golden Beach to the dramatic cliffs at Moffat Headland, our tours provide an intimate exploration of the region’s natural beauty. The “Golden Beach Tour” is perfect for those who appreciate serene beachside rides with breathtaking ocean views. For those seeking a cultural and historical depth, our “River to River Tour” is a must. This tour takes riders from Mooloolaba to Maroochydore, offering insights into the rich history and development of the Sunshine Coast. As cyclists pedal along this route, they learn about the area’s transformation from a quiet coastal stretch to a bustling, vibrant community, making this more than just a ride—it’s an educational journey. Venturing westward, the “Maleny Magic Tour” transports riders into the lush, verdant expanses of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. This route is a favourite for its rolling hills, dense rainforests, and the quaint charm of Maleny, a town renowned for its artisanal foods and crafts. This tour exemplifies how ecoTekkSC’s offerings extend beyond the coastline into the luxuriant hinterland, rounding out our offerings of environments from the coastal to the mountainous. Each of these three distinctive tours showcases the rich environmental fabric of the Sunshine Coast and represents just a glimpse of our offerings. Carefully selected to represent the ecological diversity of Queensland, every route is an open gallery of nature’s finest artworks, offering an unforgettable experience to all who embark on these journeys. Through these tours, we also highlight our commitment to sustainable, immersive tourism.

While ecoTekkSC’s tours are a physical activity, they are also immersive experiences that allow participants to connect with nature and with each other. Each of our tours is designed to be accessible and enjoyable for most ages and fitness levels, ensuring that families, couples, solo adventurers, and businesses can all find joy and challenge at their own pace. The routes are dotted with stops for rest, photography, and reflection, making each journey as relaxing or as exhilarating as riders choose. In essence, the ecoTekkSC difference lies in how each tour is infused with a deep respect for nature and a commitment to delivering a sustainable and enriching experience. It’s about more than just cycling; it’s about discovering new landscapes, embracing the outdoors, and creating lasting memories in the stunning settings of Queensland’s most beautiful trails. This unique blend of accessibility, beauty, and personal touch is what makes ecoTekkSC a standout provider in Queensland’s tourism scene, truly embodying the spirit of adventure and environmental mindfulness.

Take, for instance, Amanda Hicks, whose family outing epitomized what we aim to offer: a blend of adventure and serendipitous discovery. Amanda lauded the “coastal exploration awesomeness,” which allowed her family to uncover stunning, secluded spots along the Sunshine Coast they had never known despite living nearby. This exploration was enhanced by ecoTekkSC’s meticulous attention to ensuring that each interaction was personal and each route was perfectly suited to the riders’ interests and abilities.

This foresight can be seen in how we manage logistics, from the seamless delivery and pick-up of bikes to the provision of safety equipment, hydration, and nutrition tips to ensure riders are well-prepared for the journey ahead. Moreover, our readiness to provide detailed maps and unique insider tips on the best local spots for food, relaxation, and sightseeing adds immense value, transforming a simple bike ride into a comprehensive travel experience. The dedication to quality is not just about the physical condition of the bicycles or the scenic beauty of the routes but also about the safety standards maintained to ensure every participant feels secure and supported throughout their adventure. Regular maintenance checks, route assessments, and rider orientations are all part of the meticulous process we employ to uphold the highest safety and quality standards. In essence, the customer-centric approach at ecoTekkSC is a multi-faceted commitment to delivering not just a service but an experience. It’s about fostering a friendly, supportive environment where every rider, regardless of their skill level or familiarity with the area, can feel valued and delighted.

Leveraging Local Knowledge

Our e-bike tours transcend ordinary cycling adventures; they are profound, educational journeys that plunge riders into the heart of the Sunshine Coast’s culture and environment.

Crafted by us, Stuart and Tracey, both seasoned biologists and long-term residents of the area, each tour is meticulously designed not only to showcase the stunning landscapes but also to educate about the local environment. This rich educational layer transforms each ride into a comprehensive learning experience, allowing participants to gain a deeper appreciation for the region’s ecological diversity and its conservation needs. Our backgrounds as a marine biologist, biologists, and writers leverages our extensive knowledge to create tours that reflect our passion for environmental stewardship. Our expertise ensures that every aspect of the tour is infused with insights into the ecological and cultural significance of the areas explored. This approach aligns perfectly with Queensland’s tourism goals, which emphasize enriching, sustainable tourism experiences that educate as well as entertain. By participating in an ecoTekkSC tour, cyclists are not just taking a ride; they are engaging in a dialogue with nature, curated by two of the region’s knowledgeable and dedicated environmental advocates.


This unique perspective is a significant reason why ecoTekk Sunshine Coast was a finalist in the 2023 Sunshine Coast Business Awards, recognized for our commitment to sustainability and the impactful way we share it with the world.
