1. Re: "Different" Things to do in Noosa

its not easy without knowing what you've already done, but heres a few ideas...

1. Hire a BBQ Boat and spend the day or half a day on the river.

2. Take a boat up through the everglades

3. if you dont have a 4wd take a tour over the river to the North Shore and along the beach to the viillage of Teewah and on to the coloured sands ( yes this can be a bit touristy yet not that many people do it)

4.There is horseriding at the North Shore too - on the beach


there are also Camel safaris

5. Walk up Mt. Tinbeerwah off the Cooroy-Noosa rd - not difficult and great views.

6. Have lunch at the Appollonian Hotel at Boreen Point.

7. Have a BBQ at Tewantin Forrest Reserve - teeming with wildlife and great views.

8. See a movie at Pomona theatre - the oldest silent movie theatre in the world.

Visit the historic town of Eumundi, it's markets are open on Wednesdays and Saturdays till around 1.30pm Shuttles run from Noosa Heads to the markets

There's something for everyone there, and not far from Noosa.

There's a very interesting Buddhist Temple & grounds just near Noosa.

Lovely spot for a walk, lunch, etc.


If your kids are keen on water sports, the Noosa Yacht & Sailing Club has lots of activities for youngsters. Very welcoming to visitors - and from memory, membership is only about $25. http://www.nyrc.com.au/

Here is a few more ideas:

1. Do self guided (or guided) kayaking up the Everglades - check out Kanu Kapers. You pick up the kayaks at Elanda Pt and it would cost about $260 for a full day kayaking for 4. http://www.kanukapersaustralia.com/

2. Have a hit at the Noosa Par 3 golf course - very laid back - just off the Eumundi - Noosa Rd past the Noosa Tip (about 10 mins drive from Noosa)

3. Scramble up Mt Coolum. Takes about an hour or so, up and back. Great views and my boys love doing it. Much more interesting than just doing a walk.

4. Read the customer reviews of things to do in Noosa on trip advisor.

5. Do a bike tour of Noosa - either hire bikes and do it yourself -we are blessed with fantastic cycle paths, or do a mountain biking tour with Bike On Noosa. http://www.bikeon.com.au/

Enjoy Noosa!

* mount tinbeerwah is out the back of tewantin on the cooroy road, has great views.

* appollonian pub at boreen point is great for lunch and a walk along the lakeside (sunday they do a pig on the spit roast)

* buderim rainforest walk is beautiful http://www.buderim.com/BuderimForestPark.pdf

* kondallilllah falls at montville is a really nice walk, maybe you oculd incorporate that with a drive around the blackall ranges via kenilworth and connondale www.hinterlandtourism.com.au/themap.php…

* head over to noosa north shore, park the car and walk along the beach, also head around the to rivermouth for the kids to explore

* mount cooroora at pomona is a good walk that will tire the kids out. reward your self with lunch at the pub afterwards
