Noosa

Noosa beachNoosa is a nature lover’s holiday paradise. This leafy town is surrounded by national park. The beaches are beautiful and the boardwalk makes exercise a breeze – it is so scenic, you don’t even notice the distance you’re walking.

You’ll find bush turkeys all over town scratching away for a feed and might even be lucky enough to see koalas in the trees overlooking Laguna Beach.

A good time to visit is between July and November as you can see humpback whales on their annual migration to warmer waters. For safe swimming year round, you can’t go pass Main Beach. Noosa National Park is another favourite for swimming and surfing if you don’t mind walking.

All the beaches inside Noosa National Park can only be reached by foot. There are parking bays just outside the park but as it is a very popular spot, it can be difficult to find a parking spot.

Tanglewood track There are various clearly marked walkways in the park. We did the Tanglewood Track and Noosa Hill Track. The Tanglewood Track meanders inland for 3.8km and is described as class 4. Instead of back tracking you can continue to Hell’s Gates and follow the Coastal Track back.

Noosa Hill Track is a 3.4km circuit branching off the Tanglewood Track. You walk through open woodlands. Do not expect any view from the top though as it is obscured by dense vegetation.

Noosa is definitely a town that we will visit frequently as it offers not only immense natural beauty and an energetic vibe, but also countless experiences.
