Noosa Nature

Noosa has a protected natural environment. The Noosa region has been afforded an international Biosphere reserve status by UNESCO, and is the gateway to World Heritage Fraser Island.

The Noosa National Park starts at the end of Hastings Street and offers spectacular views of Noosa.

There is a coastal track which ends at Hells Gate with a fabulous view over the ocean and along the coast where you can often spot turtles, dolphins and whales (in season). The return distance is 5.4 km and takes about 2 hours.

The Noosa Everglades is known as the river of mirrors with fantastic wildlife with guided and self guided tours on offer, or can be visited by boat from Noosaville. This is one of just two everglades systems in the world, with a vast array of unique bird life and wildlife.

Noosa National Park

Noosa National Park, a chunk of wild coastline jutting into the ocean, is understandably one of Australia's most visited parks. Wallum heaths, woodlands and pockets of rainforest with hoop and kauri pine are important refuges for wildlife, including koalas and rare glossy black-cockatoos. Explore the picturesque Noosa Headland along a selection of five tracks, ranging from one kilometre to eight kilometres and catering to all fitness levels. Walk past rocky shorelines and spiky pandanus, through woodlands and rainforests with piccabeen palms, to wide beaches or lofty lookouts. In the Peregian section, stroll to the ocean beach. In the Emu Mountain section, on your way to the summit, discover wildflowers. In the East Weyba section, along unmarked vehicle trails, watch for birds but keep to the trails at all times.
