Make our park your home base and, whether you’re heading there for the day, a weekend, or longer, we’ve put together the ultimate Noosa bucket list to help you decide what activities to get up to while you’re away.
Noosa Farmers Market
If you’re in Noosa on a Sunday, a visit to the Noosa Farmers Market is a must. Just a ten-minute drive from the park, the markets are the perfect place to sample some of the beautiful local produce.
There are countless stalls to check out, so it’s best to arrive bright and early when the market opens at 6am. Sip on a freshly squeezed lime drink or some of the region’s best coffee while browsing —you’ll find everything from organic fruit and vegetables, freshly baked bread, gourmet condiments, nuts and seeds, and seafood straight out of the local waters.

Learn To Surf
Considered to be one of the best surfing locations in Australia, Noosa is the perfect place to learn how to surf. With wave breaks suitable for all levels of experience, you’re bound to be riding the waves in no time! For all the beginners, Noosa Main Beach is the place to go with gentle waves, plenty of places to rent a board and Noosa Surf School to help you catch that first wave.

Glass House Mountains
A trip to Noosa isn’t complete without an epic outdoor adventure! Reach new heights with a hike to one of the 11 peaks of the Glass House Mountains. With a myriad of walks for all levels of climbers, these ancient ranges are still spiritually significant to Aboriginal Traditional Owners, capturing the magic of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. As you look out onto a landscape 25 million years in the making, it will, quite literally, take your breath away.

A canoe ride through the Noosa Everglades with Kanu Kapers is an experience you don’t want to miss. One of just two everglades in the world, Noosa Everglades is a wilderness bursting with beauty and rare birds and plants.
Once inhabited by the Kabi Aboriginal people, visiting this special land is one of the most breath taking things to do while in Noosa. Kanu Kapers will guide you through this natural wonder on kayaks, or you can opt for a fully equipped self-guided tour.

An (almost) secret hidden gem and an absolute must visit while holidaying in Noosa, the Fairy Pools are simply magical to visit. Hidden just a short walk away in the Noosa National Park, it does take some scrambling over the rocks but with many people not being able to find the Pools you might be lucky enough to have them all to yourself! A natural formation of basalt rocks and the sea, the pools have been created over many years with the movement of water creating different shapes, holes and cavities in the rocks.
