Noosa National Park – Explore and snorkel

This gem is something special both for locals and visitors, tropical blue waters stunning natural scenery and endless opportunities to get up close to the wildlife. Launching from Noosa main beach, head straight into the Noosa National Park sticking close to the coastline but out of the way of the surfers making your way to Tea Tree beach for a picnic. This is a relatively short but enjoyable paddle with a high likelihood of an encounter with turtles or dolphins and in the season even whales. On your way there don’t be shy to jump in the water for a snorkel as you head around the point, on good clear days the fish life is amazing.

Tea tree beach is a great place to relax, snorkel and keep a look out for koalas and goannas. If you’re feeling adventurous head a little further north past Granite Bay and beach the kayaks or paddle boards to walk up to the very popular and stunning Noosa fairy Pools. A key point to note is to make sure you have a trolley as parking close to the beach can be hard to find so expect a walk unless your early or get lucky.
