The Noosa Everglades are one of only two everglades in the world, located in Great Sandy National Park between Noosa North Shore and Rainbow Beach.

Noosa Everglades

Although it’s one of Noosa’s secret hidden spots, it is easy to get to and can take a little as half a day to meander through the vibrant surroundings of the Noosa Everglades.

Upon your visit, there are many leisure activities you can do to experience the Noosa Everglades, such as canoeing, a self-guided kayak and even a wilderness barbeque river cruise to enjoy this spectacular region from the water.

Lake Cootharaba is a part of the Noosa River system where you can explore through the expansive waters by windsurfing and camp by the lake.

As you navigate through the mysterious and tranquil mirrored waters of the Noosa Everglades, you will discover many of the different Australian bird species residing in this region along with other plants and animals including many endemic and endangered species, that refuge in the 56,000-hectare park.

The Noosa Everglades are some of the natural wonders that make this part of Queensland so spectacular, and what are some of the other adventures that makes Noosa such a go-to holiday destination?

The Noosa National Park

The Noosa National Park is located just outside of Noosa Heads, and is a beautifully tranquil escape from the vibrant buzz of the town itself. There is plenty of natural beauty in the park, with rugged clifftops, dense rainforest, sand, water and more all making up this stunning national park (easily one of Australia’s favourites!).

Just be sure to look out for koalas and a whole species of unique tropical birds yapping away in the trees!

Noosa Main Beach

Because there is no heading to a sunny Queensland beach town without heading to its main beach, right?! And, my oh my, Noosa Main Beach is one of the state’s most paradisiacal, and this says a lot for a state that boasts the likes of Cape Tribulation and Whitehaven Beach.

Sure, Noosa Main Beach may not be as long or remote as those in the far north, and it certainly plays host to far more beachgoers due to its close proximity to a town, but there is a certain energy at Noosa Main Beach that makes it a favourite among locals and travellers alike!

What’s more, it’s a great place for swimming and surfing, as the waves are gentle and are perfect for beginners!


Noosa boasts some of the most beautiful tropical landscapes in the country, and for people who want to see it in all its adrenaline-pumping glory, there is no better way than with a spot of skydiving. These incredible flights allow for a 60 second freefall before slowly sailing down atop the blues, yellows and greens of the lush Noosa landscape.

It’s the perfect balance between thrill seeking action and being able to take in some of Queensland’s most jaw dropping scenery, making it an ideal way to view it all in the most exciting way possible!
