A beachside boardwalk connects pathways from Noosa Spit, through Noosa Woods, along Noosa Main Beach, and through to the Noosa National Park. It is a glorious walk through tropical shrubs and native trees, alongside luxury beachside apartments and white golden sands.
On the way to the National Park, the boardwalk runs alongside Park Road (an extension of Hastings Street). On Park Road you will find apartments overlooking the National Park and Laguna Bay.

Noosa North Shore
Noosa North Shore is a nature lover's paradise however if you are a first time visitor to Noosa, you may not choose to stay in that area of Noosa - it could be a bit far from the action. Access is by car ferry from Tewantin and it is advisable to have a 4WD vehicle to take advantage of all that Noosa North Shore has to offer.
Having said that, there is a bitumen road from the Noosa car ferry to the Noosa North Shore beaches.
There is excellent but limited accommodation on Noosa North Shore – an eco-inspired luxury retreat (Beach Road Holiday Homes), cabins, caravan and camping sites at Noosa North Shore Retreat Tourist Park, plus beachside camping at Sunshine Coast Holiday Parks – Noosa North Shore Beach Campground.
Noosa North Shore Resort has a restaurant, bar and corner store. However other dining and shopping options mean a trip on the car ferry (www.noosacarferries.com) back to Noosa.
Noosa North Shore would appeal to 4WD enthusiasts and those who love the natural things in life – fishing, swimming, kayaking, walking, horse riding, sailing.
Noosa North Shore is the gateway to the Cooloola section of the Great Sandy National Park, Teewah Coloured Sands and Double Island Point. There is also easy access to beautiful Lake Cooroibah.
Noosa is the place for a sophisticated getaway - a holiday destination where you can enjoy the very best of Qld's accommodation and hospitality.
