QLD Sunshine Coast - Noosa National Park

South-east Queensland’s only stretch of undisturbed, rocky coastline and the largest wallum heath remnant close to Brisbane make Noosa National Park one of the state’s most picturesque parks.

Open woodlands with a heath understorey and low wallum heath cover most of the park. Hoop and kauri pines tower above small rainforest pockets growing on sand in sheltered sites away from the sea breezes.

The park includes the popular scenic headland near Noosa Heads, parts of Lake Weyba, a large shallow, saltwater lake in the Noosa River system, and coastal lowlands extending south towards Coolum.

Have a picnic overlooking beautiful Laguna Bay with its sweeping views from Noosa to Cooloola. Electric barbecues, toilets, drinking water and picnic tables are provided. Parking is limited, especially at weekends and holiday times.

Go for a walk. See coastal rock formations, such as the Boiling Pot and Hells Gates, pandanus-lined Teatree Bay, rocky Granite Bay, historic Winch Cove and the sweeping beach of Alexandria Bay. The beaches, though inviting, are not patrolled. Alexandria Bay often has rips. Please be very careful. Toilets are provided at Teatree Bay and an emergency phone is located at the northern end of Alexandria Bay.

Escape the crowds and the summer heat on the Tanglewood track and rainforest circuit in the Noosa Headland Section. Walk through the heath at Peregian.

Camping is not allowed in the park but there is plenty of private accommodation nearby.

The best way to enjoy Noosa’s special attractions is bushwalking. . You can also explore along fire trails.


The Noosa Headland Section is a 10-minute walk from Hastings Street, Noosa
