Noosa Botanic Gardens
Located on the shores of Lake Macdonald, the Noosa Botanic Gardens are a peaceful oasis of greenery in the heart of Noosa. The gardens feature a diverse range of plant life, including rare and exotic species, and are home to a range of birdlife, including kookaburras and water birds. Take a stroll along the tranquil pathways, relax in the shade of the trees, or pack a picnic and enjoy the serenity of this hidden gem.
Noosa River Everglades
While most visitors to Noosa head straight for the beach, few venture into the hinterland to explore the Noosa River Everglades. This stunning wilderness area is home to a unique ecosystem of mangroves, swamps, and forests, and is best explored by kayak or boat. Take a guided tour to learn about the plants and animals that call the Everglades home, or venture out on your own for a peaceful and unforgettable experience.
Tucked away in the hinterland town of Noosa Heads, the Fairy Pools are a series of crystal-clear rock pools that are perfect for swimming and relaxing. The pools are accessible via a short hike through the forest, and offer a refreshing break from the heat and crowds of the beach. Pack a picnic, bring your swimsuit, and spend an afternoon in this magical spot.
