Noosa National Park

Read More

The weather forecast said “Rain” but we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to explore the Noosa Headland. I can’t believe how lucky we are to have this beautiful national park just over an hours drive from our front door.

We walked clockwise around the headland starting at Laguna Bay – a popular spot for surfers and sunbathers.

The track winds around the cliff-tops with some spectacular views through the rainforest trees down to some rocky secluded beaches.

Alexandra Bay

Eventually we reached Alexandra Bay. Hidden away on southern side of the headland it feels a million miles away from the cares and worries of the city

The walking track follows the beach for a couple of kilometres before heading back into the forest.

I suppose you could call us a family of tree-huggers :)

Hoop Pine

Eventually the track passes through some denser forest with these wonderful Hoop Pines – native to South East Queensland.

All up about 9km, with 400m of vertical ascent. A beautiful easy walk. We’d definitely do it again!
