You can jump on the water and enjoy one of their kayaking tours, a cruise over the local waters, do one of the thrilling night time sky dives, attempt some fishing or relax at a winery. All while enjoying the fresh cuisine the restaurants and cafes have to offer.

Noosa Heads Climate:

The annual mean temperature for Noosa Heads’ is 25 degrees Celsius, making it perfect for the beach all year round. Even more enticing is the water temperature in summer which reaches 25 degrees Celsius.



Noosa Heads – One of the Great Holiday Destinations

For anyone who is looking for something a little bit special in the way of holidays, Noosa Heads is a dream. Situated north of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia, Noosa Heads has much to offer the discerning holiday maker. Set on the shores of Laguna Bay, this very popular place is growing rapidly and is flourishing in the tourism market with tons of things to see and do and a wide ranging selection of holiday apartments, villas and self contained accommodations.

This once small little hideaway used to be a sleepy kind of place. Nowadays though, those who need to get away from Melbourne and Victoria, and other large cosmopolitan centres, have found this little gem up north. Over the past couple of decades even the up-market crowd has found their escape to upscale holiday accommodation here so there is a real diverse feel to Noosa Heads. To put this into perspective, Noosa and its environs now receive almost two million visitors a year which doesn’t make it the ‘little hideaway’ that it once was.

Noosa Heads is ringed by the National Park which means wildlife and hiking is right on the doorstep. The restriction on high rise building also makes the place feel homely even when holiday accommodation is well packed out in the most populated months from June onwards. Although there is plenty in the way of sporting entertainment, jazz festivals, haute cuisine restaurants and stylish and expensive shops etc, the place still retains that welcoming feel that some of the brasher parts of Australia has sadly lost along the way. On the down side, cultural events and theatre is a little lacking. Expect to be home by midnight as there is not much to do after dinner is over.

A Place to Stay

Noosa Heads is rich in holiday accommodation in all price brackets. Holiday homes and holiday apartments proliferate but there is plenty of self-contained accommodation for families and party groups. Serviced apartments in Noosa Heads are also a good idea because then all the family can get out and have fun instead of being bogged down with housework etc. Backpackers are also welcome here which gives the place a really friendly feel.

Things to Do

Noosa Woods and Noosa Spit are in this same area and the eastern end of Hastings Street, the tourist gathering place, leads directly to the National Park. A river runs through here too so for those who like fresh water fishing or messing about on the water, this is the ‘off the beaten track’ kind of place to look for.

Along the shores of Noosa, the area has more than enough beach for people not to feel crowded and people often gather to watch whales go by. Here you will find one of the largest sand islands in the world, Fraser Island. Enjoy watching some exciting wildlife around the island before settling down for a divine lunch with champagne.

Beyond Noosa and Noosa Heads lies Montville which is home to the Glasshouse Mountains. Taking a tour in a four wheel drive vehicle really allows holiday makers to get a taste of some of the main attractions and stunning scenery along this area. For example, the Ginger Factory in Yandina, or the Big Pineapple, can both be visited in one day. The Australia Zoo will take up another day and it is here that those loveable Koala bears are the main attraction for many holiday makers.

For water lovers, a cruise along the complete length of the Noosa River will take in Lake Cooroibah and Lake Cootharaba. The Everglades are another tourist attraction and these are situated in Great Sandy National Park. For foodies in the family, try the Noosa Cruising Restaurant and eat breakfast, lunch or dinner as perfect scenery passes by.

Weather

The weather in this part of the world is as perfect as can be expected and the most anyone will have to add is a cardigan or sweater in the winter months. Make sure your choice of holiday home has air conditioning for the most comfortable stay. For those adults who like to get an even sun tan all over, try out Alexandra Beach which is the only one in the area where wearing a swimsuit is (unofficially of course) optional!

How to Get There

Holiday makers from overseas have several choices when it comes to carriers and most major airlines fly out of the UK to Brisbane, just one hundred and sixty kilometers away from Noosa. Prices range from around seven hundred pounds upwards so this is probably well within reach for that family trip of a lifetime. It’s a nice idea to hire a car at the airport. Not only does it give you an easy way to reach your holiday accommodation but you can maximize your stay by getting out to see all that Noosa Heads has to offer.

Best holiday renting experience

5 of 5
We have stayed at this property during the holidays with our two children and friends and I can highly recommend it to anyone. The house is actually much more spacious than it looks on the photos with a lovely living area upstairs and big balcony overlooking the ocean. Everything is very clean (even to our high standards) and the kitchen is extremely well equipped with everything you might need. You can also choose from lots of DVDs and board games from the cupboards. We had a great time in the pool (it seemed we were the only guests using it) and the beach is just a short walk down the road. We had some trouble with the dishwasher and after a phone call we had someone coming to fix it in 20 minutes, which is quite unbelievable customer service. We had a great time staying here, relaxing, comfortable, everything we wanted for our holiday, so definitely be back again. :)

Simply the Best

5 of 5
What can we say apart from this is the best. We stay in Noosa a lot and this time we found this amazing home away from home. It was perfect. We took our little dog frank and our 5 year old girl and we had everything we could ask for and more. We had a beautiful home, all mod cons, great access to river and the transport to Noosa and a space for the car. The pool is a great luxury and the deck area which made us feel like we were in a little part of paradise with the outdoor shower and amazing greenery, a welcome respite after the beach. Why would you ever book a hotel again I said to my wife..this is the holiday home we always wanted. We were lucky enough to meet the owners( names kept under wraps for their privacy ) and we instantly felt like we had known them for years as they are a beautiful couple who are there for whatever you need. I could not recommend this place more highly and although loath to share with any else as we would love to use it all the time I encourage anyone to come here as you wont be disappointed. restaurants are walking distance and the way the place makes you feel is exactly what you want on holiday...relaxed and at home. As I said we come to Noosa a lot over the years and we won't stay anywhere else again. Trust me you won't be disappointed. Thanks again for everything ( you know who) and we cant wait to see you again soon..Jules, Jonny, summer and Frank x
