#1 of 18 in Nature in Sunshine Coast
Come see why Noosa National Park receives more than 1 million annual visits. At this 4,000 hectare (9,884 acre) park along the Pacific Ocean, relax on pristine, undeveloped beaches and swim, fish, and surf in the blue ocean-water. See koalas and short-nosed bandicoots in their natural environment, spot parrots and cockatoos, and watch migrating humpback whales offshore. Walking tracks throughout provide scenic hiking, but the park prohibits camping.

  • It’s a somewhat strenuous hike in places but children of all ages were on the trail. For a good section of trail it is also wheelchair accessible. If you’re looking for a moderate or challenging hike ...  more »
  • Walk along the coastal walkway to Hell's gates and you'll see some spectacular scenery and maybe even catch sight of dolphins or koalas. It takes about 90 mins there and back from Hastings Street, alt...  more »
  • The national park exceeded my expectations at almost every step. The routes are well sign posted and trodden, and only exceptionally busy towards Hastings Street. We were able to see turtles surfacing...  more »

  • This national park is one of the best I have ever been to in Australia. Everywhere you turn and look there is something new and amazing that takes your breath away. Going for a swim at Tea Tree is a must and so is doing the trek all along the coast. Don't forget to bring your water bottles and sunscreen as the walks are long but not strenuous.
  • Excellent hiking. Great beaches, wildlife and facilities. Fairy pools is not easy to get to. It’s not on the parks map but it’s before you get to Hells gate. Too technical for me to climb but the 20 something crowd didn’t seem to have any trouble. Great way to spend a morning Noosa
  • A really nice park to get around for those of any level of fitness. The coastal walk is probably the most popular and it isn't too difficult just very busy. It's mostly used by beachgoers but they disappear the closer you get to Hell's Gate. There are other walking tracks and they are nicely numbered. You can also find a few other tracks as well that might get you to where you want to go. See the maps scattered across the park. Don't forget to visit the lookout if you want. Not bad but trees do obscure a lot of the view
  • Go for a walk, it gets more and more beautiful the further round you go. Might not get a car park but sometimes theres no issues. Lots of options for surfing further around from the points if the swells right. Beautiful views up to rainbow beach and a lot is accessible for disabled people.
  • Such a beautiful place to visit. Parking can be very hectic but if you're patient a spot is sure to open up. Little Cove & Tea Tree is a family favourite fun for paddle boarding, surfing & swimming.
