With national parks, waterways, and the world-heritage site Fraser Island just minutes away from Noosa you’ll experience some of the best adventure activities that will have you standing on the tips of your tours, completely immersed, and yearning for more. Spend time exploring above, on, and below water with adventure activities and tours that will take you through it all.


The water in Noosa can be crystal clear particular times of the year, and with a looking glass like that scuba diving and underwater exploration will certainly pique your interest. Select from several scuba diving companies that will take you to swim with humpback whales, dolphins, and other colourful fish throughout the reef. If you’re not SCUBA certified, snorkel instead and you’ll see just as much above as you would below.


Embrace Noosa’s surf culture and catch the stoke by learning to surf. For first time learners, choose to have a guide take you surfing and provide lessons, mostly within Noosa Main Beach. For something a little different, companies like SurfDancer Surf Academy will teach you how to gracefully dance while you surf with private or group lessons. If the wind has spoilt the surf, think again with kite surfing lessons available when the weather turns.


Challenge your fear of heights and opt for exceptional views by taking a seaplane that will guide you from above over Noosa, the sea, and parts of Fraser Island. Similarly, you can opt for a helicopter ride. Take it one step further with skydiving through Skydive Noosa with a drop at 14,000 ft, you’ll have a view of it all.


Stick to land with bike tours with mountain bikes, motorbikes, or 4WD tours that will take you through the hinterland, Fraser Island or Noosa North Shore. Reserve a full day or more for activities like these as you’ll find yourself wanting to explore more of the endless terrain in Noosa, and some will include overnight camping as part of the experience you won’t want to miss. Boring won’t even be part of your vocabulary once you’ve done any of these thrilling adventure activities.
