About Noosa

Noosa is a place where you can relax, have a good time and indulge yourself. A place where city dwellers can cast off their daily worries and stresses. Noosa is at the northern end of Queensland’s sub-tropical Sunshine Coast and combines international sophistication with the laid back carefree ways of a small seaside town – our population is only about 48,000.

Many visitors who experience the atmosphere of the place just cannot bear to leave and our development rules have seen to it that there are almost no buildings higher than the trees.

Traffic lights, billboards, highrise buildings and parking meters are all prohibited by the Noosa Council.

Hastings Street is Queensland’s best known avenue with its tempting boutiques, restaurants and pavement bistros.

Hastings Street and Little Cove on Laguna Bay are linked by road and river ferry with Noosaville and Tewantin, both of which are expanding and up and coming areas. Noosaville now rivals Hastings Street with its first class restaurants and river views.

Walk up to Laguna Lookout on Noosa Hill and gaze down on the sheer beauty of unspoilt green bushland, rainforest, Noosa River, pristine lakes, Main Beach and the North Shore beaches and secluded bays and coves.

Noosa is a flora and fauna sanctuary where birds and wildlife can be found in their natural habitat. Few Australians have seen a koala in the wild but in Noosa they’re not an uncommon sight. Noosa National Park is the most visited national park in Queensland and you can swim, surf and hike there all year round. There are miles of well kept trails along the coast and through the bush and you can stop off at one of the many sandy and secluded beaches or keep walking until you get to Alexandria Bay, Noosa’s nudist beach.

Noosa’s beaches, river, lakes and canals offer everything for the water sports enthusiast – yachting, boating, fishing, surfing, swimming, jet-skiing, water-skiing and rowing. Bring your own boat or hire one along the riverside. Away from the water there’s still plenty for you to do, whether in Noosa itself or in one of the many beautiful little towns and villages with their open-air markets, art galleries, potteries, superb restaurants and friendly pubs.

Noosa is natural. Noosa is special. Noosa is sophisticated. Noosa is friendly and Noosa is waiting for you!
