Lake Weyba

Lake Weyba, Queensland, Australia

Lake Weyba is an incredible natural attraction and considered almost a remote, secret treasure of Noosa. It acts as an essential fish-breeding ground and is a shallow saltwater lake, just a 15-minute drive from Noosa or 5 minutes from Peregian Beach.

Spend some time by the lake and take the opportunity to reconnect with nature, make the most of bird watching or bushwalking too. The water in the lake is clear as it drains directly into Weyba Creek connecting with the Noosa River so you can swim in it. Or for something a little more hands-on, immerse yourself in the salt water with water sports like kayaking or kite surfing.

While the park has minimal walking tracks, you can still navigate the lake area easily many other ways. To take in the incredible scenery, the best way to do so is to ride a canoe or kayak and embrace the serenity, with access points from the end of Eumarella Road or Lake Weyba Drive. You won’t need to worry about falling in either due to the shallow waters of the lake averaging around 1 metre deep. Often you’ll see kangaroos basking in the sun on the edge of the shallows with bird and plant life in abundance too. For a more intense outdoor, on land experience, cycle to the western shores of Lake Weyba.

Plant life surrounding the lake includes open forest, mangroves and saltpans and the lake adjoining Noosa National Park influences the vegetation. Due to the shallow waters, only catamarans and small tinnies are recommended, as the foreshore has no formal boat access to the lake either. You can find a choice of accommodation options in the area like charming lake houses and cottages, which have been designed to blend in with the natural environment. Set up for a night or two so you can explore the surrounding area. From a lakeside picnic to a sunset stroll, take the opportunity to indulge in the serene atmosphere with the choice of beautiful accommodation options.

Lake Weyba is a tranquil escape that is still well connected to Noosa Heads and the coastline, take a day trip out or spend a night or two at this incredibly peaceful lake.
