Visitors love walking the recently constructed boardwalk from Hastings Street to beautiful Noosa Heads National Park. Stroll past peaceful coves, spectacular cliffs and natural heathland to the secluded beaches of Alexandria Bay. Many make a morning or afternoon of it and continue through the Park to Sunshine Beach.
Take a 4WD to the North Shore and drive kilometres of beautiful deserted beach to the Coloured Sands of Teewah, the wreck of the "Cherry Venture" and eventually to Rainbow Beach, gateway to the World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.
Travel this region by road, along the beach or on the beautiful rivers.
Try a peaceful houseboat holiday meandering up the river to Lake Cooroibah and Lake Cootharaba. The Noosa River is a hive of excitement with catamarans, sailboards, jet-skis and "Tinnies", whilst the fishing is sensational.
Inland are the towns of Cooroy, Cooran, Kin Kin, Pomona and Boreen Point. These peaceful hamlets with old-fashioned pubs and marketplaces, are a world away from high-rise jungles, pollution and traffic jams
