View of Granite Bay, Noosa National Park, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia

Granite Bay sits within the stunning Noosa National Park. The walk to Granite Bay takes off from Hastings Street and will bring you along an incredible coastal track; with views across the glistening water and thick forest backing off the coastline. Along the walk, pass by Laguna Bay and Tea Tree Bay, eventually reaching Granite Bay. The walk is considered easy to moderate and will take you through the scenic rainforest.

Granite Bay sits on a point and is accessible by a walking track, often getting medium swell, making surfers flock to the area. On any given day, watch surfers swimming out to make the most of the swell, and if you pay attention to the water, you may even spot turtles and dolphins playing. In the winter months from July to October, look out for humpback whales migrating too.

What’s unique about the bay is that the sand is also covered in large granite pebbles with boulders on the bay. Much like many of Noosa’s little beaches and coves, at high tide, the shore begins to disappear. The walking track sits above the beach, showcasing incredible views across the water. There are also many other walking tracks nearby, great for a picnic or a relaxing pit stop. This isolated beach can be dangerous for swimming, and just like the other surrounding stretches, it is un-patrolled.

Listen for the echoes of the beautiful birdlife and look out for native trees. To reach Granite Bay, enjoy the gorgeous walk to experience some of Noosa’s best natural wonders.
