Eat at Noosa's favourites

Australian chef Peter Kuruvita’s Noosa Beach House Restaurant and Bar offers breakfast and dinners in a stylish setting. Don't miss the wild caught North Queensland crayfish. Noosa Boathouse on the Noosa River is a great place for a seafood extravaganza of oysters, prawns and local barramundi, while looking over the river and hinterland. Betty's Burgers and Concrete Co is a local favourite, serving up casual burgers and a scintillating array of desserts, such as passionfruit ginger crumble topped with vanilla custard and banana.

Rest your head

You can even charter a houseboat and stay on the Noosa River with Luxury Afloat Noosa

Shop at the original Eumundi Markets

There are plenty of one-off designer boutiques on Hastings Street, but for something different, handmade, or uniquely Australian, head to the Original Eumundi Markets which has more than 500 stalls selling artwork, craft, fashion and gifts by local designers. The markets are open Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

Visit Australia Zoo

Australia Zoo is the home of the famous Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, who sadly passed away in 2006. Along with a range of animals such as elephants and tigers, you can cuddle a koala, hand-feed kangaroos, meet talking cockatoos and waddling wombats, and learn all about crocodiles. Platinum tours include exclusive behind-the-scenes animal encounters.

Swim with the humpback whales

From July to October each year, thousands of humpback whales pass Noosa on their annual migration along the Australian coast from Antarctica. Many eco-tourism tour operators offer whale watching tours and Sunreef Mooloolaba offers the rare opportunity to swim with these majestic animals in the crystal-clear waters.

Hit the beaches

Noosa's beaches offer everything from horse riding to swimming, snorkelling and surfing. Noosa Main Beach just steps away from Hastings Street, is patrolled by lifesavers for safe swimming all year round. Between Sunshine Beach and Peregian Beach, you’ll find Sunrise Beach, Castaways Beach and Marcus Beach. If you have a hankering to make like a local surfer, find lessons at Learn to Surf Noosa. 

Walk in Noosa National Park

Noosa National Park is ideal for walks and swimming at secluded beaches with plenty of easy to moderate walking tracks. The Coastal Track from Noosa to Dolphin Point is an easy one kilometre (0.6 mile) walk. If you're feeling fit, continue another four kilometres (2.5 miles) to Sunshine Beach. You can catch a bus back to town if you don't want to walk. Many native animals, such as koalas, live in the park and you can often see sea turtles and dolphins swimming along the coastline. The best months for walking are March to May when the weather is still warm enough to swim, and September to November, when the days are sunny and clear.

Explore Noosaville

Noosaville is a charming seaside village centred around the sparkling waters of the Noosa River, just five minutes drive from Noosa Heads. Sample the diverse cuisine served at Noosaville's restaurants, such as Noosa Waterfront Restaurant and Bar overlooking the river, which serves modern Italian cuisine paired with award-winning Australian wines.
