Tewantin is a quiet suburb set on the Noosa River. Home to Tewantin National Park, it rewards visitors with stunning lookouts and mountain bike trails. Tewantin Village welcomes visitors to explore the Noosa Regional Gallery, showcasing local, national and international exhibits. On a warm and sunny day, pack a picnic and enjoy the view from Memorial Park. Or visit what once was the port for Noosa, which is now home to Noosa Marina; filled with alfresco dining options and cafes with a view. You can also find speciality shops and a gallery within the precinct too.
The suburb is well connected by ferry to the surrounding areas. However, what’s unique about Tewantin is that the ferry also travels directly to Makepeace Island. This 25-acre luxury island is home to Sir Richard Branson and allows you to spend the night there, but take note that it will set you back some cash.

Tewantin National Park is made up of diverse, subtropical rainforest with a mix of eucalyptus forest and endangered swamp stringy bark. The park is 13 square kilometres and just west of Noosa Heads, and the entrance is via Noosa-Cooroy Road.
The park has two recreational areas - Mount Tinbeerwah and Wooroi. At Wooroi you can enjoy a picnic amongst the incredible towering trees with tables and tap water available. Otherwise from Tinbeerwah Road, at the Mount Tinbeerwah day-use area you’ll have access to picnic tables and toilets. You may have some two-legged, winged friends approaching you (birdlife) but be mindful of keeping your food away from them, as feeding them can disrupt their natural habitat and potentially harm them. Mount Tinbeerwah has 130km of a sealed track which makes it accessible for wheelchairs too. Along the walk look out for native wildlife like echidnas, wallabies and wallum froglets. Listen to the sound of birdcalls and look up for eastern whip birds and black cockatoos. If you’re partial to spending the night in nature, unfortunately, camping is not allowed in Tewantin National Park. However, you can still get your fix at other nearby parks like Cooloola Recreation Area, or Great Sandy National Park.
The park is suitable for all fitness types, and the walking tracks have been graded to help identify fitness levels. The Mount Tinbeerwah Lookout track provides a great vantage point of the iconic Glass House Mountains in the distance.
For an adrenaline-boosting experience, the park has a range of mountain biking tracks (graded in levels of difficulty), horse riding tracks along with abseiling and rock climbing options too. Abseiling and rock climbing is recommended only for experienced and equipped adventurers and is accessible behind the safety fence adjacent to the Mount Tinbeerwah Lookout track. The park also has a well-known koala habitat, but you’ll have to look carefully as they're often nestled cozily into trees.
Make the most of incredible views across Noosa’s coast at Tewantin National Park, and from Mount Tinbeerwah lookout enjoy dramatic 360-degree views across the river and forest.
A short 1km hike along a well-maintained walking track will lead you to 360-degree views of the entire Noosa region, hinterland, and the Pacific Ocean at the top of Mount Tinbeerwah. More than just a hike, Mt. Tinbeerwah offers a playground for any outdoor hobbyist involved in hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and horse riding.
Just a short drive from Noosa, you'll quickly feel immersed in nature taking the Cooroy-Noosa Road for about 6km before turning onto Mount Tinbeerwah Road. At the end of the road, you'll find a carpark lined with granite boulders that will serve as a starting point for the activity of your choice.
For hikers, the Mount Tinbeerwah Lookout Track is an openly exposed trail that's relatively easy to climb. It is also accessible to prams and wheelchairs, with a fenced area along the trail ideal for hiking with young children. Without many facilities in the area, be prepared with water and if you like, a picnic you can enjoy at the top or head further to a fire tower lookout for incredible views.
Mountain bikers can select from trails ranging from easy to difficult on Mt. Tinbeerwah and the Wooroi day use area. As some trails are often shared with hikers it will be important to pay attention to signs, maps, and directional paths you can find at the Parkyn's Hut Information Centre in Tewantin. Horseback riding is also permitted on similar firebreak trails and internal roads.
Rock climbers and abseilers will find several anchors and access points on Mt. Tewantin. Climbers must stay behind the safety fence that is adjacent to the lookout track. As with most climbing rules, it's important to never go alone and follow all safety precautions in the area. Campers will find campgrounds in several of the national parks nearby, or can opt to stay in Tewantin or Noosa.
Whether your adventurous spirit ranges from mild to dare-devilish, Mt. Tinbeerwah can satiate most of your outdoor recreational needs. The views alone will make you feel exhilarated at any point of the day, no matter how you chose to get there.
