Things to See and Do

Where to start!

Imagine enjoying a swim in the refreshing waters of Laguna Bay, relaxing on the warm sand, then, after a short walk, partaking of a delicious lunch at the restaurant of your choice. There are many to choose from along Hastings Street. Walk off dessert with a leisurely stroll window shopping or along the beach.

Raise the activity level with a walk through the Noosa National Park. Choose a half hour walk or explore the area on one of the longer walks available. Whichever track you choose the views will be spectacular and the wildlife varied and abundant. All trails are well sign posted.

For a change of pace and a different perspective, take the ferry to the Marina at Tewantin.  More fine dining opportunities await, or choose market day for a more varied shopping experience.

Great Views

Drive or walk up Viewland Drive to the lookout in the National Park for a fantastic view overlooking Noosa, Tewantin, the north shore and Mt Cooroy in the distance.  If you go in the late afternoon or evening you will be staring into the sun so best to go before noon.

Everglades Tour

Nothing will prepare you for the sights and sounds (or lack thereof) on this boat ride up the Noosa River. Glide through mirrored waters reflecting the trees and sky, the only sound being the quiet throbbing of the boat’s motor which has the effect of reducing conversation to a whisper. The driver of the boat provides a commentary as you progress through the waterways, negotiating shallow lakes and sandbars. Be on the lookout for wildlife in the trees and in the water but be careful not to shout when you spot something, give fellow adventurers the opportunity to see them also.

Enjoy the morning tea and picnic lunch provided during a relaxing, informative and interesting day.

Markets

Oh my, you will be spoiled for choice.

EumundiEvery Wednesday and Saturday.  Plenty of parking.  More than 600 stalls provide everything from fresh produce to clothing, household items to plants.  As you stroll among the stalls, enjoy live music provided by local artists. Save your appetite for your choice from the variety of delicious food cooked onsite.  You can even enjoy a massage or have your fortune told.

Noosa Marina:  Held on the boardwalk of the Noosa Marina at Tewantin every Sunday morning.  Enjoy a variety of stalls, food, drink and live music under the umbrellas.  Avoid the worry of finding a park and take the ferry.

Fishing

Hire a tinnie and find a spot to drop a line.  Relax and watch the world go by.

Boating

Hire a tinnie and explore the canals of Noosaville.  Find a house for sale with the frontage you’ve always dreamed of.

Rent a houseboat or yacht for a luxurious holiday on the water with family or friends.

Standup Paddle

For the young and young at heart!  All you need is a sense of adventure and good balance.
