One of Noosa’s best features, this lovely park covers the headland, and has fine walks, great coastal scenery and a string of bays with great surfing. The most scenic way to access the national park is to follow the boardwalk along the coast from town.

Koalas are often spotted in the trees near Tea Tree Bay, and dolphins are commonly seen from the rocky headlands around Alexandria Bay, an informal nudist beach on the eastern side. Pick up a walking track map from the Noosa National Park Information Centre at the entrance to the park.
