What to Expect

Discover the sights and delights of Noosa, one of the many jewels in the Sunshine Coast crown during this full-day guided tour. We stop at Laguna Lookout which offers the ultimate panorama of Noosa which is a short drive from the bustling hub of Hastings Street and provides sweeping views that extend out as far as the mountains in the distance and across the Noosa River.


The next stop is Hastings Street where you will enjoy 45 minutes of free time to explore and step foot on Noosa Main Beach. You will have plenty of time to grab a coffee, browse the many shops along Hastings Street or take a walk to Noosa National Park. Noosa Main Beach is one of the few beaches along Australia’s coastline facing north and is the best option for families or those who are not confident in the surf, as it is protected by the headland, has gentle waves and is patrolled year-round by surf lifesavers.


After Hastings Street, you will take a ride on the Noosa Ferry up the Noosa River to Tewantin for an appetising two-course lunch on the waterfront. The Noosa Ferry will allow you to enjoy the passing scenery in a laid-back manner, this is one of the many Sunshine Coast attractions for the camera! The ferry will pick you up at Hastings Street and take you on a ferry cruise along the Noosa River to Noosa Marina. You will get to see local wildlife, amazing scenery and views right over the water, and you’ll also get to check out the region from a different viewpoint.


If you’re a foodie, you’re in for a treat as the two-course lunch with a glass of wine or beer is at one of Noosa’s highly rated restaurants – Pier 11. It's spectacularly located at the Noosa Marina perched overlooking the Noosa River. The stylish and warm decor of the main restaurant offers diners a picturesque waterfront setting for all dining occasions. The River Lounge offers a great place to take in the endless river views and the natural surrounds. 


After lunch, enjoy a 20-minute scenic drive through Noosaville & Tewantin past the forestry plantations before arriving at Habitat Noosa Everglades Eco Camp, where you’ll depart on an afternoon Serenity Cruise, on Lake Cootharaba, heading north up the Upper Noosa River to Fig Tree Point (historic indigenous location ) past the Kinaba Information Centre. This is the start of the Noosa Everglades. Onboard you’ll enjoy a glass of bubbly and light savoury afternoon tea before returning to Habitat Noosa with the sun lowering over the lake to end what is an amazing full day in Noosa.
