Noosa Main Beach

If you’re heading to a destination on the Sunshine Coast, the chances are you’ll want somewhere with a good beach. After all, it’s what this stretch of Australia is known for. Noosa Main Beach is a great spot for both the surf and the sunshine, so it’ll be sure to provide a good few days of beach-filled activities. Head in for a dip or learn to ride the waves while you’re here - it’s beach-patrolled all year round, therefore a safe spot for beginners to learn. 

Noosa National Park.

This is a must-do when in Noosa or even the Sunshine Coast in general. Noosa National Park is one of the most beautiful national parks on the East Coast, so well worth taking the time to explore all that it has to offer. It boasts all types of nature - from sea and sand to waterfalls and bushland, rocks and cliff tops. Every kind of person will enjoy what it has to offer, making it a versatile place for all the family. You can either head on one of the many hikes available, or take it slow and pick a spot to enjoy nature and have a picnic. Make sure to look up while you’re here, as the park is home to koalas, who use the trees as their home for the night. Notable spots to enjoy include Laguna Lookout, Boiling Point, the Fairy Pools and Hell’s Gates to name a few!

Noosa Everglades

Be careful to not dip your toes in these waters! Noosa Everglades is the perfect spot for nature lovers to take to the water and glide through. It’s one of just two everglades systems in the world, so be sure to experience this adventure with friends, family, or even solo! You’ll make friends as you go and it’ll be worth it for sure. There is wilderness at every turn along the everglades, so keep your eyes peeled the entire time you’re out on the water. You can either take to the water with a tour company or go on a self-guided kayak tour. Both are fantastic options.

With sandy banks, grassy parks, and tranquil waters, it’s the perfect spot to relax, enjoy a picnic, and make the most of the beautiful weather. You could even rent a paddleboard with Noosa Stand Up Paddle, which has been voted the top school in the industry by Australian Weekender - so you’ll know it’ll be a worthwhile experience!
