Here in Noosa, we have a long and proud history of protecting, preserving and looking after our pristine environment - it's one of the main reasons why people love holidaying and living in Noosa! When you visit our beautiful region, please treat it with respect and join us in being responsible citizens.
Take 3 pieces (or more!) of rubbish with you when you leave the beach or anywhere and you'll make a difference. This can even be a fun game if you’re visiting Noosa with the whole family!
Who can pick up the most plastic on your afternoon beach stroll? What plastic items did you find?
And of course we ask you to please take your own rubbish with you and place it in one of the many public bins in Noosa.
This is not only great for mother Earth's health (as it reduces carbon emissions created by food miles) but also for your own.
Some of Australia’s best producers who are dedicated to organic, nutritious and delicious local produce are here in Noosa's hinterland. You can visit some of these growers on a Noosa Country Drive or taste their fresh produce in local restaurants or weekly farmers markets. The Snail of Approval logo helps you to identify food outlets preferencing local product.

The best way to travel from A to B in Noosa is by foot or bike. It’s not only much more fun, exciting and efficient to scoot around Noosa on a bike but you’ll also help keep emissions out of the atmosphere.
You’ll also be doing something to improve your own health while on holidays. We’ve put together a list of local (electric) bike hire companies for you, have a look HERE!
Noosa is home to 44% of all Australian bird species, 1365 species of plants and 711 species of animals, many of which are rare, threatened or endangered.
Many animals choose to live in or visit Noosa regularly as our pristine environment provides plenty of natural habitat. We ask you to help us look after our local furry, winged, prickly and water-dwelling residents and preserve their home.
Stay on designated tracks in National Parks, leave animals, plants, rocks and wood where you find them, pick up your rubbish and avoid noise pollution.
We’re very lucky in Noosa to have free public transport available during Queensland Easter and summer school holidays. We encourage you to leave the car at home (or hotel in this case!) and hop on a local bus.
This will help the environment, reduce road congestion and chances are you’ll hear some great “local tips" from the bus driver or a fellow passenger on where to eat or what do so. VIEW BUS TIMETABLES.
Noosa is dedicated to eliminating single-use plastics and we were selected as the first community in Queensland to take on this battle! We’re doing pretty well since the Plastic Free Noosa campaign started in 2018 with over 2.5 million pieces of plastic eliminated in the first 16 months.
Join our war against plastic and choose green alternatives. You can even buy your very own Noosa keep cup, jute bag and reusable water bottles in the local Visitor Information Centre. What a great souvenir to take home. HERE are more tips for going plastic free.
Imagine having your very own Noosa tree! Here in Noosa we’re committed to giving back to the environment which is why we started the Trees for Tourism initiative.
Pop into our Noosa Visitor Information Centre in Hastings Street to make a donation towards tree planting in Noosa. We’re proud that our major local events also have come on board with this meaningful project and donate $1 per participant to the Trees for Tourism project.
