Pack your flip flops and a sense of adventure – Noosa awaits

Nestled under the warm skies of the Sunshine Coast, Noosa is a resort region that caters to lovers of the great outdoors.

There's plenty to do on land as well, as you can enjoy an afternoon of hiking or rock climbing in Noosa National Park. If you booked a Noosa vacation rental in search of more leisurely activities, the region is also home to numerous cosy boutique shops, sidewalk cafes and tranquil gardens.

Things to do

Nature calls – from green gardens to pristine parks

Soak up the sights and smells of Noosa Botanic Gardens, home to 8 hectares of manicured gardens. The pristine green space also features lakefront walking paths and an amphitheatre that hosts outdoor concerts throughout the year. Still searching for natural beauty? The 4,000-hectare park Noosa National Park serves as a giant outdoor playground for visitors of all ages. Take in stunning vistas via the park's boardwalk, which runs alongside the rocky shoreline to hilltop summits. The Australian Zoo, started by beloved animal expert Steve Irwin, is just a one-hour drive from Noosa.

Activities

Surfing, sailing and swimming along the Sunshine Coast

Test your stamina in Noosa as the region offers a slew of water-based adventures, including surfing, kayaking, sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkelling and fishing. If you're staying in a Noosa vacation rental from July to October, take advantage of a unique opportunity – sign-up for a swimming session with humpback whales. There's plenty of action on land as well, as the area is home to numerous golf courses. After a long day filled with activity, treat yourself to a soothing massage in one of Noosa's numerous spas or take a sunset cruise throughout the watery landscape.

Weather

Sunny skies along (where else?) the Sunshine Coast

Noosa vacation rentals are popular year-round as the region usually features mild weather. Summer is the peak season with daytime highs rarely exceeding 28 degrees and plenty of sunshine on tap. Late summer is typically the wettest period, when thunderstorms appear frequently, so make sure you keep your umbrella handy. Winters are cool, but even then, highs typically hover around the decidedly mild 20 degrees. Autumn brings pleasant temperatures, but humidity can be high, while spring features sunny skies and very little rain. As a bonus, the waters in the region remain warm and ripe for swimming throughout the year.
