A Noosa holiday is characterised by balmy beach days, breathtaking coastal walks, good food and relaxed vibes.
Here the pace slows, friendly locals welcome you with a smile and you can take the time to truly relax.
For many, a Noosa escape starts at Noosa Heads, where pristine nature sits alongside the iconic Hastings Street.
Noosa is listed as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, and a great way to appreciate the region’s natural beauty is by exploring the Noosa National Park.
Spend your days swimming in the sea, snorkelling, surfing or exploring the coastal tracks, before retiring to Hastings Street to eat and drink at some of the region’s best restaurants, explore trendy boutiques and watch the world go by with a cocktail in hand.
Beyond Noosa Heads, the region is home to a collection of relaxed coastal towns and charming hinterland villages.
Discover the Noosa Everglades – one of only two everglades systems in the world – that stretches across two UNESCO Biosphere Reserves - the Noosa and Great Sandy - in the upper reaches of the Noosa River. Known as the River of Mirrors because of the amazing reflections in the water, the Noosa Everglades is a 60km stretch of pristine waters, magnificent flora and fauna and narrow waterways.
Travel from Noosa North shore along the Great Beach Drive – one of the world most scenic highways – that takes you along the sand to Rainbow Beach and north to Fraser Island covering two UNESCO Biosphere Reserves.
With wide stretches of beach as your road, you’ll be driving in a rare natural environment with opportunities to spot whales, dolphins, turtles and rare bird species along the way.
The Noosa Hinterland is fast becoming a must-visit for lovers of good food, great beer and gin.
The best way to explore is by car, mapping our your journey through Boreen Point, Kin Kin, Pomona, Cooran and Cooroy, making sure to stop into the boutique breweries, local distilleries, country pubs and homely cafes that make the region so inviting.
With so many accommodation options, from self-contained apartments to beach houses and country cottages, there’s never been a better time to book a family holiday or relaxed couples escape in Noosa.
Noosa Eat & Drink, The Noosa Triathlon Festival, Noosa Alive and The Noosa Festival of Surfing are major events not to be missed.
