Noosa National Park

Sunshine Coast hotels

Noosa National Park is situated just metres from Noosa’s famous Hastings Street, but it seems like you are miles from civilisation with the towering ghost gum trees and the chatter of native kookaburras all around you.

National Park

The Noosa National Park is home to native Australian scrub that meets private sandy coves, making it surely one of the world’s most idyllic destinations. Wandering through the national park you can stop of for a swim at one of the many hidden beaches along the path that leads up from Noosa Main Beach over to the ominously named Hell’s Gate overlooking Alexandria Bay on the other side of the Headland. These little beaches are not patrolled, but they are little havens of golden sand where you would be forgiven for thinking that you had been cast away.

Make sure you do not let the crystalline ocean distract you all the time and keep your eyes pointed to the heavens as this is an excellent place to spot koalas checking out the wave breaks from their high perches. It is not uncommon to spot dolphins playing in the waters close by and at various times of the year it is an ideal humpback whale spotting location. The best vantage point for spotting marine life or incoming wave breaks along the path is at Boiling Pot Lookout.

Noosa National Park

A favourite among locals and visitors alike, any trip to the Sunshine Coast and Noosa in particular is incomplete without pacing the pandanus palm lined walking tracks at Noosa National Park.
