The Best of Noosa!
Known for its countless stretches of white sandy beaches, colourful bays and world-famous waves, Noosa is the jewel crown of the Sunshine Coast with a beach-infused urban lifestyle.
Planning a trip to the beautiful town of Noosa? Here’s the very best of Noosa that you have to see and visit while you here!
Noosa Main Beach
Though this may be considered as the heart of Noosa, there is a laid-back attitude to this area which makes it the perfect place for a few lazy days. The calm and clean waters are great for families with young kids and are patrolled by lifeguards all-year-round. You can easily find everything you’ll need from upmarket restaurants and bars, quick eateries and boutique shops along Hastings Street – a stone’s throw away from the beach.
Noosa Main Beach is also a popular spot to learn to surf with gentle waves that are perfect for beginners! There’s plenty of places to rent a board or sign up for lessons with Noosa Surf Lessons.
With the fine sand beach and Hastings St nearby everything in Noosa, this area truly gives you the best of everything.
Noosa National Park
At the top end of Noosa Main Beach, you can easily find Noosa National Park by foot. With gorgeous views of the blue water, surrounded by lush greenery, it is one of Australia’s favourite National Parks. With an area of more than 4,000 hectares, it is home to several rare and threatened species.
Inside the park, you can find 5 main walking tracks with several beaches along the way for you to take your pick from. The first stop on the main walking path is Tea Tree Bay. This is one of the more popular beaches due to its proximity to the entrance and has been featured in the Top 10 Beaches in Australia. Behind the beach, you’ll find eucalyptus trees with koalas taking their daily snooze.
As you continue up the track you will find rock pools which are fun to explore at low tide. These are home to different marine creatures including crabs, fish and sea anemones.
Noosa is surrounded by water, and the Noosa River connects directly to the Pacific Ocean along with 5 lakes in the area. The river plays a vital role in migratory birdlife, and acts as a beautiful swimming hole and a popular location for water sports. You can also find different varieties of fish here including bream, whiting, trevally, mangrove jack and flathead which makes it a popular fishing spot.
The calm waters make it an ideal place for stand-up paddleboarding (SUP). Get in touch with Australia’s first SUP school – SUP Noosa which is incredibly fun and easy to learn.
