The Noosa headlands is situated at the northern end of Alexandria Bay, forming the north eastern most tip of the Noosa National Park. The Noosa River, which once flowed through to the Coral Sea at the north western end of Main Beach is now limited by a groyne that was built in 1978. The town is 160kms north of Brisbane and 20kms east of the Bruce Highway.
It’s not so much about jam packing your days visiting attractions and partaking in activities when in Noosa Heads. It is hard to drag oneself from the white sandy beach or from one of the gorgeous beachside cafes.
However, if you do manage to tear yourself away wander up and down Hastings Street and shop at one of the boutiques selling Australian and International fashions, artwork, jewellery, homewares and lots of other delights.
If you do like to keep busy than Main Beach makes for a great place to learn to surf. Spend your holidays learning to surf the beginner waves at Main Beach and you might graduate to the surf beach by the end of them.
For the truly active the National Park walk is a great way to get your legs pumping as you climb through the forest overlooking the beach and to the point for a spot of turtle watching. The walk finishes up on the steps of one of the best ice cream shops in Australia and if not the world, Massimo’s.
