Head for Noosa
Noosa is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Australia. Its cosmopolitan and friendly atmosphere is a hit with most who come to experience it. That laid-back holiday feeling will soon take the stress of everyday life away. Noosa is surrounded by wilderness regions. This provides a wonderful contrast but also an opportunity to explore the region in relative ease and comfort.
The Great Sandy National Park (GSNP) is situated just north of Noosa. It includes two vast wilderness areas, Fraser Island and Cooloola. These two regions have a shared geology, geography, flora and fauna. The main distinct difference is the Cooloola section is still part of the mainland. Whereas Fraser Island lost touch many thousands of years ago. Scientists have described The Great Sandy National Park as having the largest ‘vegetated sand dune system’ in the world.
The Cooloola covers an area of approximately 70,000 hectares. It stretches from Noosa to Rainbow Beach. Cooloola is considered such a unique wilderness region it has recently been nominated for ‘World Heritage’ listing. It contains a vast array of natural wonders, including the Noosa River and Lakes system. High dune rainforests and perched lakes await you. We should also mention the large number of pristine beaches.
