Getting There & Away
From the end of Moorindil St in Tewantin, cash-only Noosa North Shore Ferries shuttle across the river to Noosa North Shore.
If you have a 4WD, you can drive along the beach to Rainbow Beach (and on up to Inskip Point to the Fraser Island ferry), but you’ll need a permit (www.npsr.qld.gov.au; per day/week/month $12.15/30.65/48.25). You can also buy a permit at the QPWS Great Sandy Information Centre, although day passes purchased online are cheaper. Note: check the tide times before you set out!
