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. Plan to see Noosa National Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Noosa travel itinerary maker.

  • We always make sure we have time to take at least one of the walks around or through the NAtional PArk, usually the coastal route to Hells Gate and then return via the Tanglewood Forest, so 6.9km all ...  read more »
  • A great walk which can be broken up into 2 or 3 walks. Very popular in the mornings. Parking at the Sunshine Beach end is sparse and obviously discouraged. 
  • Whale and dolphin watching so easy on this walk! We also saw a koala much to my toddlers delight! Able to take a pram a fair distance along the track! 
  • Can't beat this walk for scenery and views. Just amazing but you have to fight your way through the crowd. Spot the odd koala along the way. Check with the guides at the entrance to the park. They'll tell you if there have been any sightings. Dolphins, turtles, whales... There's plenty to see if you make it to Hell's Gates which is a pretty easy walk. Better still, walk all the way to Sunshine Beach (a few hills to climb) and catch a bus back to Noosa after having a bite to eat at the Sunshine Beach SLSC.
  • An awesome place to see natural beauty. Don't forget there is a nudist beach on the far side so don't go down if that sort of thing bothers you.
  • Natural beauty all around. Unfortunately we didn't see any koalas but if you look hard enough and spend long enough there you will see some at some point. Incredible sights. Beautiful walks. Beautiful cove beach's to go for a swim. If you climb over the rocks you can find the rock pools also. Make sure you wear comfy shoes and take water.
  • Did the palm grove circuit - nothing special A smal track not more than 1,3km through rainforest with a few explanations to each plant.
  • Definitely a must see if you are anywhere near Brisbane and/or Surfer's Paradise! Beautiful walks available of varying difficulties and a great spot to see sunset.
