If walking where the bush meets the coastline sounds like your cup of tea, then Noosa National Park could be just the ticket for you! Situated alongside the Pacific Ocean, Noosa National Park has 15kms of trails to discover, many which lead to secluded beaches or lookouts with gorgeous views. Don’t worry about getting lost, either, the trails are well-signed with arrows showing how far away each spot is, so you can choose a walk within your limits. The park is also filled with native wildlife, and if you’re lucky you might get a peak at a resting koala or see dolphins frolicking from the headlands near Alexandria Bay!

  1. Noosa Main Beach


Noosa Main Beach is perfect for when you feel like a coastal getaway and don’t mind sharing your views with other people holidaying. The beach is patrolled by surf lifesavers 365 days a year and has gentle waves, making it perfect for families and those who don’t wish to contend with big waves. Cafes and restaurants along the beach mean you won’t need to venture far after a dip in the ocean, and there are plenty of shops to browse on nearby Hastings Street if you forgot an essential holiday item for your trip.
