Noosa: not to be missed

It’s no wonder that Noosa is a popular Australian destination for holidaymakers. This Sunshine Coast hotspot has been described as a “luxurious resort town” suitable for families and couples alike. Its combination of beautiful beaches, great dining and shopping, and adventurous excursions should place it at the top of your holiday wishlist.

While it’s always difficult to choose from the many holiday options available in Noosa, we’ve gathered a few recommendations below:

Noosa beaches

Noosa Main Beach is its most popular beach and one of Australia's few north-facing beaches. This is a great option for families and learner-surfers, as it has gentle waves and is patrolled by surf lifesavers. Alternatively, drive on the long stretch of beach, Noosa North Shore, on the northern side of Noosa where you can also fish, surf and camp. (Whip out the camera for the coloured sand cliffs).

Hastings Street

When you shop or dine in bustling Hastings Street, the beach is only steps away. Hastings Street offers exciting fashion, jewellery, homewares, art and more. It’s the hub of the town and a popular meeting place. As well as boutiques and popular shopping outlets, you can find a seat in quality bars and restaurants including plenty of al fresco dining options.

Noosa Farmers Market

Visit Noosa Farmers Market at Noosaville (every Sunday from 7am to 12noon). Enjoy a wide variety of cuisines, with plenty of fresh produce available to buy and enjoy back at your cabin, caravan or tent site.

Australia Zoo

The Irwin family’s world-famous Australia Zoo is approximately one hour’s drive from Noosa depending on which route you take. It’s an incredible day out for the whole family – cuddling a koala, hand-feeding a red panda, taking a walk with a tiger and more.

Explore Noosa National Park

Soak up some of South East Queensland’s most picturesque coastlines, choosing from walking tracks suited to a variety of fitness levels. There are five guided tracks, each with different surroundings including stunning coastal scenery and serene bays. Koalas are often spotted in the trees near Tea Tree Bay, and dolphins can be seen from headlands around Alexandria Bay.

Try jetboating

Combine sightseeing around the Noosa region with an exciting jet boating ride. Noosa Thriller is Noosa's longest established ocean water sports company. Sign up to feel the salt spray and wind in your hair, with an awesome 500-horsepower, high performance ride!
