Noosa may be known as a fashionable, possibly exclusive, resort town. But there is more to this Sunshine Coast beachside destination than meets the eye. Two hours north of Brisbane, Noosa is within the Noosa Biosphere Reserve. Recognised by UNESCO for its highly diverse ecosystem and community collaboration, this area includes the Noosa Everglades, Noosa National Park and the pristine Noosa beaches.
Nature and the community live together in harmony in Noosa. And there are activities galore to keep any visitor busy on their Noosa getaway. Whether you want to sip cocktails and boutique shop on trendy Hastings Street, wax your board and relax on the beach, or explore pristine subtropical rainforest, Noosa is the place for you.
Noosa is popular so pre-planning your Noosa holiday package is essential. Regardless of when you choose to visit, Noosa’s breathtaking natural beauty and golden beaches are always on display. And there are many ways to explore these stunning natural surroundings. Take a Noosa quad bike tour through the hinterland in Woondum National Park. Enjoy a serene horseback ride along the beach. Or explore the Noosa Everglades by boat, kayak or stand-up paddleboarding. The everglades (one of only two globally) are a 60km stretch of pristine waterways with abundant and diverse flora and fauna. A Noosa eco-tour here is a unique experience found nowhere else in the world.
Aside from surfing, boating and beaching, you’ll find a bubbling social scene on Hastings Street, a concentration of the region’s best restaurants, shops and bars.
Looking for something more low key? Take in nature and a round at the same time at Noosa Springs Golf Club with Fun Over 50. Sandwiched between Noosa National Park and picturesque Lake Weyba, it’s the best of both worlds; holiday vibes and nature encounter.
The weather in this part of Queensland is excellent for holidaying year-round. But with a jam-packed events and festival calendar in autumn, it’s the perfect time of year to visit. You can check out the Noosa Eat and Drink Festival, the Noosa Tri and the Noosa Long Weekend. There’s still plenty of sunshine in autumn, just less humidity, heat and rain.
The best time to see whales in Noosa is during their annual migration along the east coast, which typically occurs from June to November. The whales pass by Noosa as they travel from their feeding grounds in Antarctica to their breeding and calving grounds in the warmer waters of the Great Barrier Reef and beyond.
To increase your chances of seeing whales, you can join whale-watching cruises that depart from Noosa from August to November.
