Take in the breathtaking blue in Noosa’s beautiful waters. Noosa's beaches have something for everyone - from the safe, calm waters of Laguna Bay that lap Noosa's Main Beach and are hugged by the Noosa National Park on one side and Noosa North Shore on the other, to the expansive open beaches on the eastern seaboard.
The Noosa region is the 10th World Surfing Reserve, recognising decades of best practice in coastal management and protection, and surfers come from around the world to surf Noosa's breaks, especially during the Noosa Festival of Surfing, held in March each year.
There are beaches for swimming, surfing, stand-up paddling, boating, fishing, kite-surfing, snorkelling, walking, exploring - there are even beaches for dogs to run off-leash.
There are few places in the world where you have a thriving town centre just a stone’s throw from stunning natural landscapes like Noosa National Park.
National Park is a national natural treasure. Visit Noosa and enjoy this world class environmental masterpiece. It is here that tourists will be able to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and immense variety of unique and interesting wildlife.
Noosa National Park beaches: Walk the beautiful coastal boardwalk from Hastings Street to the Noosa National Park entrance (about 10 minutes), then continue along the track to secluded beaches including Tea Tree Bay, Alexandria Bay and Granite Bay that are lapped by the clear waters of Laguna Bay. Stop at lookouts along the way for stunning views across to Noosa North Shore. The points are popular with surfers but the beaches are not patrolled, and not recommended for swimming.
It's no wonder the Noosa region is renowned for its award-winning restaurants, cafes and bars, with an abundance of fresh, local and delectable produce prepared by dedicated and experienced chefs.
There's something for all tastes, from riverfront restaurants to Hastings Street and along the beachfront, throughout the hinterland and in beachside villages of Sunshine Beach and Peregian Beach.
