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.
