Noosa is leading the way in eco-tourism, with a swathe of environmental protection initiatives and programs, designed to protect Noosa’s stunning natural environment now and for future generations to come.
Leave no footprints on your Noosa holiday, and offset the impact of your travels by getting involved in the voluntourism movement, with these eco-friendly initiatives.
Help protect Noosa’s outstanding natural assets by joining a tree planting activity. By contributing to this project you will help to revegetate land for rehabilitation, reduce carbon emissions and help protect and enhance Koala habitat. Local events also commit one dollar per event participant resulting in a new forest in the Noosa Hinterland.
Pottery for the Planet craft pretty, planet-friendly ceramics from their studio in Noosa’s industrial estate. They offer a solution to the problem of single-use coffee cups by donating reusable ceramic cups to local cafés, through the Choose to Reuse program, and also stock a vibrantly coloured range of ceramic tableware.
Sustainable tourism doesn’t mean missing out on new adventures. Explore the selection of eco-accredited Noosa adventure providers, and dive into a world of sustainable experiences, including kayaking, beach and river expeditions.
With the first plastic-free community program in Australia, Noosa is proudly leading the way in creating a plastic-free destination. Plastic Free Noosa supports local businesses and events to ditch single-use plastic.
The Noosa River estuary hosts an array of migratory shorebirds and over 59 water bird species, which raise their babies in the shorebird habitat at the Noosa Spit. The Enter the Flyosphere program raises awareness on protecting shorebird biodiversity, and giving them space to rest, feed and breed. Join an eco-friendly expedition with the Noosa Integrated Catchment Association (NICA) and explore the area from the water.
