Cycling

When in Noosa, we highly recommend leaving the car behind and exploring this beautiful area on two wheels. Whatever your cycling skill level, Noosa has a perfect place to pedal for everyone, with delightful coastal paths, tropical rainforest tracks, challenging mountain biking routes, and everything in between. The gorgeous natural environment creates the ideal backdrop to any bike ride.

Enjoy a relaxing riverfront cycle along the Noosa River, ending at the Tewantin marina for incredible scenic views and local flora and fauna. Cycling is also a fantastic way to see the charming coastline of Noosa, with white sand as far as the eye can see along the eastern beaches. The surf beaches trail is a 23km return trip which follows the coast and allows cyclists to remain on a bicycle track away from traffic. During the winter months, you may even be lucky enough to see migrating humpback whales as you pass by. 

For the mountain bikers amongst us, Mt Tinbeerwah in Tewantin National Park is not to be missed. You will be treated to breathtaking 360-degree views from the waves to the wilderness, before venturing along the Woorai trails through the stunning sub-tropical rainforest.

The Noosa Trail Network offers 100km of magnificent tracks through the hinterland, varying in length and terrain to suit different fitness and experience levels. Winding trails will take you to remarkable lookouts, National parks, and country pubs, with exotic plants and local wildlife along the way.

Check the calendar prior to your arrival, as Noosa hosts a variety of exciting cycling events, ranging from family fun days to the world’s largest triathlon. You can even test your skills on the 40km tri course. After departing from Noosa Heads, you’ll make your way along the lovely river, past Lake Macdonald, and venture towards the delightful hinterland town of Cooroy.

Alternatively, an array of guided tours are available, showcasing the best of cycling in Noosa for those who can’t decide where to go. If you can’t bring your bike with you, take advantage of the mountain bikes, road bikes, electric bikes and children’s bikes available to hire.
