This website has the list of rides in Noosa or for rides further south ... rides.aspx.

I haven't been on any of the southern rides but if you are going with the Noosa bunch be aware that they can be VERY fast, especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There are often pro riders in the bunch and if they feel like a good workout they can just blow you apart. The Thursday ride in particular is crazy, for the last 20 or so km the bunch will usually be sitting on 50+kmh. The Tuesday and early Thursday rides have some fantastic scenery, so if you get dropped you can still enjoy yourself.

You will also see plenty of people riding in the bunch on TT/Tri bikes, don't worry as they have better bike handling skills than the majority of riders.
