eGuide Top 10 Noosa Bucket List

1. Visit the beach at sunrise – Noosa Beach is truly spectacular sight and even more so as the sun is rising over the Pacific Ocean and the Noosa National Park. This is the time of day that the dolphins come out to play so keep an eye out for something rather special.

2. Walk the National Park – One of Australia’s most scenic walks, there are several tracks winding around the park and each with its own wonders to be found. The coastal track is an absolutely must do for any tourist, walk along the scenic track and take in stunning views of Laguna Bay, the Pacific Ocean and the Noosa Beach. Keep an eye out for whales, dolphins and turtles.

3. Have breakfast at Bistro C – A favourite among Noosa locals, grab a gourmet breakfast right on the beachfront. Drink a healthy fruit juice and take in the views and watch the surfers as you chew on your sweet corn fritters and crispy bacon.

4. Get fish and chips on the Noosa River – The place to be in the early evening just as the sun is going down is on the Noosa River. Noosa River is very popular at this time of day as many people are out to taste the exquisite Fish and Chip selections on Gympie Terrace. Grab your food and head to one of the picnic tables to soak in Noosa lifestyle.

5. Take a surfing lesson – You can’t visit Noosa without trying out its famous surf breaks. Learn from a former World Champion in the small sets but if you feel confident head out to the point breaks around the national park. Its hard to find a more scenic location to surf the perfect wave.

6. Spot a Koala in the National Park – It’s hard to turn away from the wonderful views over the ocean as you walk through the Noosa National Park but make sure you glance upwards every now and then and keep an eye out for Koalas eating Eucalyptus leaves and snoozing in the branches over head. They are usually easy to find as crowds of people gather to watch these unique creatures.

7. Stroll along Hastings St – The second most expensive street in Australia to rent a premise, Hasting Street is filled with all the high end fashion shops, surfing, book stores, restaurants and coffee shops that one could ask for just across the road from the beach.

8. Drive on the beach – Hire a 4wd and take to the Noosa north shore, test your driving skills on huge beach that leads to Rainbow Beach where you can catch a ferry to Fraser Island. Sand dunes, great fishing, great surfing and lots of fun are to be had on the Noosa North Shore beach. But remember there are no life guards on the beach and most importantly remember it’s a road so speed limits do apply and police do regularly patrol.

9. Drive down the coast – Whilst you have hired a car why not drive down the coast road and explore the rest of the Sunshine Coast. The David Low Way is a very scenic drive; make sure you stop along the way at some of the smaller towns to check out the beach.

10. Visit the hinterland – Noosa is not just about the beach, there is much to see and do inland as well. Maleny and Montville are very nice peaceful places to visit up in the hills not far from Noosa. It’s a great place to get a view of the entire Sunshine Coast and have afternoon tea in the beautiful hinterland.
