Noosa is a relaxed, beach side haven. After choosing your luxury hotel, it is time to think about exploring the surrounding area and experiencing everything that Noosa has to offer. To help, we have compiled a list of seven of the most interesting things to see and do in Noosa.

Cruise through the Noosa Everglades

Along the Noosa River is the unique Australian Everglades, where over 44% of native Australian bird species reside. The area is in a protected national park and all tourism has an eco-focus, ensuring the continued survival of this spectacular ecosystem. Cruise up the river while sipping a glass of bubbly, before stopping to enjoy gourmet snacks at the CootharaBAR & Bistro. Alternatively, for something more physical try a kayaking river tour.

Wander up Hastings Street

In the heart of Noosa Heads is Hasting Steet, a bustling strip filled with shops, restaurants, day spas and art galleries. There are great local stores selling their bespoke wares, including local institutions Alterior Motif and Signature on Hastings. For brands that have a greater international reputation, visit Bow and Arrow Trading Noosa, and Who Invited Her. After exploring the street, settle in at one of the many restaurants to enjoy a meal. One option is Bistro C, a local icon which overlooks the ocean.

Relax at Main Beach

Main Beach is known for its sandy, white shores and beautiful blue water. Due to its north facing position, the waves are relatively small and there are lifeguards on duty creating a safe swimming environment. One end backs on to the Noosa National Park and the area around the Noosa River mouth is popular with people who enjoy fishing. The beach is easily accessible from town and just back from the shores are a range of high-quality restaurants, cafes, and bars to be enjoyed.

Go Whale Watching

From July through to October, thousands of humpback whales migrate along the Queensland coast during calving season. From the shore it is possible to spot the whales and their newborns, with the best locations for this being Sunshine, Sunrise, Peregian and Coolum beaches. If you would like to get closer, a tour can be organised through a local operator. You can choose between going out on a jet boat, kayak, or helicopter, to get closer to these gentle giants.

Try a Local Brew or Wine

In the countryside surrounding Noosa there are a few breweries, wineries and distilleries that make high qualities beverages using local ingredients. Dingo Creek Vineyard produce fine wine, while the Amerita Park Meadery is owned by a family with a long history and passion for making mead. There are also local breweries creating craft beer, including the Boiling Pot Brewing Co and Heads of Noosa. If spirits are your preference, try 20 20 Distillery (gin/whisky), Pomona Distilling Co (gin/vodka) and Fortune Noosa Heads Distillery (gin/malt).

Explore Noosa National Park

Within walking distance of the Noosa CBD is the Noosa National Park. There are many hiking trails that snake through the park, with The Coastal Walk offering particularly stunning ocean views. Sunshine Beach is great for swimming, First Point is better for surfing and Hells Gate has cliff top views over crashing waves. Some of the most picturesque spots in the park are Boiling Pot, Noosa Fairy Pools and Little Cove.

Go Horse Riding at the Beach

On Noosa North Shore it is possible to enjoy the beach and bush by horseback. All tours begin by ensuring everyone is comfortable riding a horse, before crossing the bush and sand dunes to access the beach. Riders can enjoy views of the ocean and coastline, as the horses walk and canter along the shoreline and through the shallows. Their are several operators offering this experience in the area, so speak to your hotel concierge to get them to organise this for you.
