MAROOCHY WETLANDS SANCTUARY
The Bli Bli sanctuary is home to 200+ species of birds, as well as crabs, butterflies and other creatures. A 900m long boardwalk meanders through rainforest, mangroves and woodland.
The shallow rock pools and grassy verge backed by native forest are ideal for a post-swim snooze or picnic. Park on the banks of Obi Obi Creek – it’s just a short walk down to the cascades and pools.
Discover the native flora of the Sunshine Coast and enjoy a picnic in the Maroochy Bushland Botanic Garden in Tanawha or Noosa Botanic Gardens on the shores of Lake Macdonald near Cooroy.
Accessed by boat or from the Maroochy River shoreline by a pedestrian bridge, Chambers Island is a top spot to kayak, try stand-up paddle boarding or just chill out and enjoy the beautiful view.
