The Noosa National Park is one of the most beautiful places in Noosa with lots of flora and fauna and shady places to stop along the way. All the walks are colour coded and the most popular is the Noosa Coastal Track. This is a 7 kilometre return walk from the Noosa National Park entrance. It is graded as easy and partly shaded with almost half the track pathed making it suitable for wheel chairs and prams. This area is particularly scenic and follows the coastline with easy access to the Tea Tree Bay and Granite Bay. Follow the coastal path to its end and you will end up Hell`s Gates which overlooks Alexandria Bay. From here you can walk to Sunshine Beach and then catch a bus back to Hastings Street or continue walking home. Allow extra time to explore the beautiful seaside village of Sunshine Beach and stop for a coffee or bite to eat in its tree lined street.
Explore this area during July to November and you may be lucky to see whales, with dolphins often spotted frolicking about and turtles going about their daily business.
Keep your eyes open as there are a couple of koala’s living at the entrance to the park, you may be lucky enough to see them on your walk. This is one of the easiest and most prettiest walks close to Noosa and well worth making the effort.
Head to the western end of Hastings St and explore Noosa Woods.This is an off lead area for dogs and is a wonderful walk through the woods and down to the beach at the end near the mouth of the Noosa River (The Spit). Here you may see kite surfing, fishing charter boats heading out, fisherman on the river shores catching their breakfast, and a great relatively new beach that has just finished for everyone to enjoy.
The next walk that is just lovely is called the Laguna Lookout. Follow the path then meanders its way back down through William Hack reserve and the streets of Little Cove. A delightful stroll wits beautiful views. A gentle stroll can be done along Noosa River in the parkland opposite Gympie Terrace. Lots of Parking so feel free to take the car.You can walk up to the Tewantin township and past the Noosa Marina.
