Lake Cootharaba Motel

Lake Cootharaba is the quintessential family-friendly destination. Life runs at a slightly slower pace as you stroll through the small town, grab an ice cream for the kids and dip your toes in the water’s edge.

The lake is perfect for the young ones with the water not getting much deeper than your knees most of the way out so you can relax on the shore while the kids splash for hours in the calm waters of Lake Cootharaba.

Lake Cootharaba Motel is the perfect setting to immerse yourself in this idyllic slower-paced lifestyle and offers comfortable and private accommodation just 30 metres from the water. You can choose to stay in the motel rooms or lash out and book the beach house for a premium waterfront getaway that you and the whole family are going to love.

Lake Cootharaba is famous for its water activities including sailing, canoeing, fishing and windsurfing. The kids are never going to want to leave! The small town offers great coffee and takeaway food while the famous Apollonian Hotel is only a short walk away - the perfect spot for a refreshing ale after a day on the water.

Known as Noosa’s secret hideaway, the Lake Cootharaba Motel is perfect for those visiting as a couple, a family or in large groups. The rooms are beautifully presented and offer air-conditioning, a refrigerator and a deck area for enjoying an afternoon drink - sounds picture perfect, doesn’t it?
