(46) Noosa Heads
is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Australia. With
its cosmopolitan and friendly atmosphere with a laid-back holiday
feel for many. Noosa is surrounded by wilderness regions which not
only provides not only a wonderful contrast but also an opportunity
to explore with relative comfort and ease.
The Great Sandy
National Park (GSNP), which is situated just north of Noosa, includes
2 vast wilderness areas - Fraser Island and Cooloola. These 2 wilderness
regions share many similarities - including geology, geography,
flora and fauna. The main distinct difference is the Cooloola section
is still part of the mainland, like Fraser Island was many thousands
of years ago. Scientists say the GSNP is the largest 'vegetated
sand dune system' in the world.
section covers an area of approximately 70,000 hectares and stretches
from Noosa to Rainbow Beach. It is considered such a unique wilderness
region it has recently been nominated for 'World Heritage' listing.
Cooloola contains a vast array of natural wonders, including the
Noosa River and Lakes system, high dune rainforests and perched
lakes, not to mention more than 80kms of pristine beaches
