Home to star attractions like Australia Zoo, Noosa also makes an ideal basecamp for exploring Queensland’s highlights, including the Sunshine Coast and Noosa National Park. Here are some of the most popular destinations for day tours from Noosa. 

Fraser Island — 140 miles (225 km) north of Noosa
The UNESCO World Heritage–listed Fraser Island is the biggest sand island in the world and one of Queensland’s most visited attractions. Zip around the island on a 4WD safari; jump off to visit Seventy-Five Mile Beach, Lake McKenzie, and the Pile Valley Rainforest; and look out for wildlife like saltwater crocodiles, wild dingos, and kookaburras.

Noosa Everglades — 4.5 miles (7 km) west of Noosa Heads
Set out to cruise, kayak or canoe around the wild waterways of the Noosa Everglades, taking in highlights such as Lake Cootharaba, Kinaba, Fig Tree Lake, and the Upper Noosa River.

Great Beach Drive — running for 235 miles (380 km) north of Noosa
Linking the sun-soaked beaches of the Sunshine Coast with Fraser Island, the Great Beach Drive serves up some of Queensland’s most spectacular scenery. Stop along the way to explore the Great Sandy National Park and the Noosa National Park, both UNESCO Biosphere reserves. 

Rainbow Beach — 62 miles (100 km) north of Noosa
A visit to Rainbow Beach is about more than just sun, sea, and surf—it’s also surrounded by natural wonders and a day tour from Noosa can include highlights such as Cooloola, the Red Canyon, and the Coloured Sands. It’s also a popular spot to see dolphins, whales, and sea turtles, with kayaking and boat tours setting out from Double Island Point.
