The best things to do in Noosa

Noosa is a long-time favourite destination on southern Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, and for good reason. This relaxing but trendy spot is perfect for all kinds of people, with its stunning beaches, a range of accommodation options, great places to eat, national parks and everglades. There are so many things to do in Noosa and across the Sunshine Coast as a whole, that you could spend weeks there and still not run out of great experiences to enjoy.
Staying in Noosa and want to learn to surf within walking distance of your accommodation? No problem, Noosa Main Beach is a great place to take surfing lessons. Book in with a friendly team of Surf Lifesaving Australia qualified instructors and you’ll be well on your way to catching your first wave. Already have experience surfing? It never hurts to brush up on your skills. And who wouldn’t want to learn from the expertise of two times Australian Champion and World Pro-Am Champion Merrick Davis and his team? Book a single lesson to test the waters, or commit to real progress with a three or five lesson package. For the ultimate surfing instruction, go for a private lesson. With this one-on-one tuition you’re sure to learn at the fastest pace possible.
For an extra thrill, combine your surf lesson with a 4WD adventure through the Great Sandy National Park. This trip is perfect for beginners as you’ll head to the hidden gem Double Island Point, Rainbow Beach (you can only get there in a 4WD vehicle). With waist deep water, expert tuition and, best of all, no crowds, you’ll be amazed at the progress you make. The qualified instructors will get you standing up on the board in no time.
Always wanted to skydive? Or maybe you’re just keen to do it again? Skydiving over the beach in Noosa is an incredible feeling. During these tandem skydive adventures you’ll jump from 15,000ft, experiencing the rush of up to 60 seconds of freefall. Once the parachute opens, you’ll enjoy fantastic views and learn how to control direction and descent speed. This is one Noosa experience that will leave you on a high long after your feet touch back down to the ground.
Paddling in the waters around Noosa is a real must-do. Book on to one of the kayaking tours for mesmerising views, plus a whole lot of fun. As well as beautiful coastline, this area is home to a variety of marine life, so be sure to look out for dolphins and turtles. You might just find you get an up-close view of them from your kayak.
