Fol­low the sun­shine with VisitNoosa’s guide to kid-friendly ad­ven­tures be­side the beach.

Holiday with Kids - - Noosa, Qld -

From the first rays of the ris­ing sun over the head­land to sun­set be­hind the moun­tain tops of the hin­ter­land and into the balmy evenings, Noosa will in­spire, re­lax, delight and en­ter­tain the whole fam­ily. Sparkling seas, deep blue skies, fab­u­lous eater­ies with ocean and river views, bustling out­door cafes, su­perb shop­ping and end­less out­door fun and ad­ven­ture sur­rounded by na­ture have long guar­an­teed the per­fect Aus­tralian sum­mer hol­i­day. Get­ting to Noosa is even eas­ier now with more flights into the nearby Sun­shine Coast Air­port from Syd­ney, Mel­bourne and Ade­laide.

Bliss on the river

The beaches and wa­ter­ways around the Noosa River pro­vide an idyl­lic lo­ca­tion for learn­ing to surf or stand-up pad­dle board – you can even have surf­ing lessons with a world cham­pion. Trav­el­ling with a four-legged fam­ily mem­ber? There is a swim spot at the dog beach in Noosa Woods.

From cata­ma­rans to eco-pow­ered so­lar ships, hir­ing a ves­sel on the river is a great way for fam­i­lies to ex­plore. Moor at your own sandy spot along the river and take in the sights of stun­ning birdlife and beau­ti­ful homes. En­joy a sausage siz­zle on one of the pon­toon boats or try your hand at fish­ing.

Board the ferry and cruise from Hast­ings Street to the Noosa Ma­rina in Te­wantin with stops all along the river. You can buy an all- day pass and en­joy the Ma­rina Mar­kets on a Sun­day morn­ing, let off some steam at the Pi­rate Park near the Noosa Yacht and Row­ing Club or en­joy a pic­nic along the river.

Wheel ad­ven­ture

Take a spin on any kind of bike and dis­cover Noosa on two wheels. From moun­tain bikes and road bikes, to elec­tric bikes and even tan­dem bikes, there’s an op­tion for ev­ery­one.
