What to do
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.
HERE’S HOW TO ENJOY A NOOSA HOLIDAY WHILE KEEPING YOUR GREEN CREDENTIALS IN CHECK:
This is the offical welcome of the local indigenious owners, the Kabi Kabi. While in Noosa, immerse yourself in local culture and pay your respect to the traditonal owners, past, present and future, and their rich history.
Head to the Noosa Museum in the country town of Pomona to see and learn about some of the authentic Kabi Kabi artefacts and memorabilia and to visit the Island of Reconciliation.
Want to learn more about our local custodians? Meet them HERE.
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.
Many tourism operators in Noosa are passionate about protecting the environment and have introduced green practices and to help protect and enhance our environment.
Before choosing accommodation, tours, experiences or restaurants, check out different businesses and choose ones who you feel do the right thing.
Many businesses have completed the Noosa Eco Check program, are Eco Tourism certified or joined initiatives like Plastic Free Noosa or Slow Food Noosa.
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.
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.
Your Noosa, Your Way
