Noosa 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.
The Cooloola 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
