Walk and cruise Noosa in winter

​Marco! … Polo! Usually the sound of summer in Australia. I’m overlooking the pool at Mantra French Quarter Noosa with a glass of Lanson in hand and it is supposedly winter. Don’t tell the kids. Perhaps winter never comes to Noosa...

VISIT NOOSA

Just how close to a humpback whale would you feel comfortable being? Watching the majesty of humpbacks as they travel through the warm waters off Noosa on their annual migration north is an unforgettable sight – their playful tail slaps, breaches, sprays and fin ‘waves’ seem even more incredible when you consider their size … around 15m in length and weighing more than 35 tonnes!

See the best views of Noosa from Mt Tinbeerwah, four-wheel-drive past Noosa’s ‘coloured sands’ along Noosa North Shore or glamp it up in a ‘Luxury Teepee Tent.’ Relax on the water at Lake Cootharaba or kayak through Australia’s only Everglades, and its football fields of water lilies. It’s time, to start your NEW Noosa adventure!
