About The Area

Noosa is world-renowned and for good reason – our national park, beaches, climate and award-winning restaurants embody the perfect lifestyle.

Noosa is believed to translate to shadow or shady place by our original inhabitants, the Kabi Kabi or Gubbi Gubbi people. Known as a place of abundance with pristine waterways, rich sub-tropical rainforests and ample food sources, the Kabi Kabi people were considered to be less nomadic than surrounding tribes. To this day, many towns within the Noosa Shire still hold their indigenous name.

For decades, Noosa has been the ultimate holiday destination, with many choosing to make it home. Laguna Bay is one of four north-facing beaches on the east-coast of Australia, with calm waters and clean surfing waves.
Hastings Street, Noosa Junction and Noosa River have a variety of award-winning restaurants and cafés, allowing residence and visitors alike to relax and enjoy.

Noosa National Park is home to our much-loved koalas and you can often spot dolphins from the shoreline.

Upper Noosa River or better known as the Noosa Everglades is a unique and pristine ecosystem, containing 44% of all of Australia’s bird species, as well as 1,300 native plant species.

Bordering the Mary Valley, Noosa’s Hinterland is dappled with mountains and rainforests. Each town honours its heritage and there are stunning walking trails and water-holes to explore.
