Coastal walk, Noosa National Park


In popular Noosa National Park, follow the shoreline between Noosa Headland day-use area and Sunshine Beach, on this walk, passing over several headlands boasting outstanding views across coastal she-oaks and pandanus palms. Peer into the trees in search of koalas snoozing or munching on leaves. Feel the sea spray and feel the thunderous sounds of waves crashing ferociously into the rugged rocks at Boiling Pot, Dolphin Point and Hell's Gates. The first section of this walk features a sealed, barrier-free path to Dolphin Point, suitable for strollers. The path is suitable for assisted-wheelchair access to Boiling Pot, beyond this, the 1.2km walk to Dolphin Point has steeper gradients in places. At Dolphin Point, see if you can spot a pod of passing dolphins. The track from here to Hell’s Gates is an uneven, gravel and sand track. At Hell's Gates you will be greeted with incredible coastal views unlike anything you’ve seen before. Visit between June and November and you might spot humpback whales cruising past the coastline on their way to and from northern breeding grounds. Watch from several vantage points as turtles and dolphins drift and skim through the waves.
