Noosa National Park
Noosa National Park encompasses an area of more than 4,000 hectares, including sections surrounding Lake Weyba, Peregian and Coolum. Noosa National Park is extremely important for nature conservation and is home to several rare and threatened species.
Noosa National Park is one of Australia’s favourites and is one of the easiest to access by foot from local areas. Noosa National Park is loved by locals and tourists alike. Explore kilometres of walking tracks of all grades from wheelchair accessible easy walking to medium level sandy tracks. No trip to Noosa is complete without a trip to Noosa National Park for a day.
A range of different vegetation stimulates the senses, from rain forest through to areas of coastal bush with iconic Pandanus and Banksia.
An easy introduction to Noosa National Park would be to take a stroll along the boardwalk from the end of Noosa Main Beach. This will take you past Little Cove, a favorite beach for the locals an on towards the park main entrance. Visit the information hut for information on recent sightings and to stock up on water if you need it (essential!).
Follow the coastal path stopping at the “Boiling Pot” a short distance into the park. There are great views here back towards Noosa and to the right the first beach in the park Tea Tree Bay. Proceed along the coastal track to Tea Tree Bay and do a bit of Koala spotting in the trees behind the beach. There are public facilities at the far end of this bay, the only facilities in the park.
From here the coastal track will take you on towards Dolphin Point and the end of the sealed track. The track is suitable for prams and wheelchairs up until this point.
Next stop is Granite Bay which changes with storm activity and may be a sandy beach or just rocks.
