Surfing at Noosa

Noosa has some of the best surfing points in Australia. It rivals any of its' more well known Gold coast point breaks minus the high-rise along it's foreshore.

Blessed with the foresight of the earlier councils, Noosa set aside 4,000 hectares to form Noosa National Park. 4000 hectares of natural bush land, a winding track following unspoilt headlands.

Your morning greeted with long glassy conditions and surfers running to get amongst some of the best surf anywhere in the world.

Surfing at Noosa starts really at Sunshine Beach and continues right around the national parks coastline and onto the North shore. A distance of approximately 12 km.
