There are lots of opportunities to keep yourself busy, if that is your holiday thing, walking, cycling, horse riding, boating, fishing, surfing and canoeing. All either right on our doorstep or close by.
Around the complex there are some bush tracks into the national park, and we have an aerial photo to show you these at the house.
There are walks along the surf beach between 1st & 3rd “cutting", or longer walks to the Noosa River mouth entrance (and Frying Pan") from the 1st cutting (approx 5km return), or extreme walks to Rainbow Beach along the Cooloola Way (a five day expedition). If you drive out to Double Island Point there is a lovely walk up to the lighthouse to view the whales, dolphins and a variety of other birds and sea life.
Boating and fishing
Bring your boat and head up river and across two lakes up to the Noosa Everglades. Or take the Everglades charter from Noosaville or Tewantin – check their brochure.
Launch your boat the river next to the ferry. Note it is an extra fee for the boat & trailer on the ferry - check with the Noosa North Shore Ferries website ((website hidden))
There are popular fishing spots north and south of the launch site. Fish the relatively unpopulated surf beach gutters all the way north to Double Island Point as well.
Canoe/Kayak the Noosa River or Lake Corooiba (there is a walkway behind the North Shore pub which takes you down to the shallow and tidal lake). Or you can drive to Elanda Point on Lake Cootharaba to hire canoes and kayaks and launch here for a great paddle through the national park waterways and everglades. This is on our to do list.
By arrangement there is beach horse riding available. There are a couple of local companies, who base themselves between the 1st and 3rd cutting. Take a drive to check them out, or stop them on the beach. Check out web sites for these companies.
We now have bikes for your use. Please be careful with them, we do not have lights, so only for use during the day. If you'd prefer to bring your own helmets please do so.
We provide a chain and padlock for securing them.
It is about 5-10 min bike ride to the beach (via "1st Cutting").
Or for the more adventurous, take the track across the national park opposite Our Treehouse, this takes you to Frying Pan Track Road, turn left at the road and travel the gravel road to the mouth of the Noosa River - called the Frying Pan!! It is 7 km one way.
There is another route which encopmasses the start of the Great Cooloola Walk. It commences at end fo the street behind the resort - back past the pub and turn right.
There is a map in our house manual which you will need to follow the correct routes. You may want to memorise this!
