Noosa River and Noosaville
Noosaville is the perfect place to base your family holiday, with access to bike paths, playgrounds, water activities, barbecues and picnic areas. Gympie Terrace offers a range of eateries including takeaway fish and chips and amazing gelato! The Noosa River flows alongside the main strip where you can hire stand-up paddleboards, BBQ boats to explore, fishing equipment or jump on board the Noosa Ferry.
The area is home to a variety of birdlife, including the pelican, amazing sunsets and an inviting community feeling.
If your kids love the beach, then Noosa is the place for you. Noosa Main Beach is popular due to its north-facing headland of Noosa National Park. The headland provides a protected shelter from most winds, meaning you will find gentle calm water most days of the year. The perfect place to learn to surf!
Follow the coast road south to discover our eastern beach villages of Sunshine, Sunrise, Marcus and Peregian Beach. Home to skate parks, playgrounds, kid-friendly restaurants and open spaces for family activities.
