Friday:

Check into Habitat Noosa

Habitat Noosa offers 5 types of accommodation:

Paperbark Tents – Your 5-star glamping experience. Catering for couples as well as families. Enjoy your private ensuite, a comfy bed (bunk beds for kids), stylish deco, mini-fridge and a kettle for that morning cuppa! Or go the works like us and indulge in the freshly cooked breakfast that is delivered first thing in the morning to your glamping tent door! But watch out for the sneaky food-stealing kookaburras. 

Wilderness Tents – Located away from the campers and nestled among the paperbark trees. These also provide the simple comforts of a bed and bunks, but have no bathroom or other furnishings.  

Powered and unpowered campsites – Variety of site locations; some located along the riverfront of Lake Coothara, others on the large grassy field behind the Paperbark Tents. 

Cabins – All fully renovated, air-conditioned, and each with 4 beds (2 x bunk beds). 

The 65- acre Ecocamp is nestled in the National Park, and is only a short 5-minute boat ride to the Noosa Everglades and a 25-minute drive from Noosa Central. An exciting place for families. Wear the kids out with bike rides, kayaking on the lake or just playing a game of footy on the oval amongst the local grey kangaroos. You never know one might just want to join in!

While the kids go wild, relax at CootharaBAR and treat your taste buds to a refreshing cold locally brewed beer (ginger beer was my favourite)! Enjoy the rest of the afternoon and let someone else do the cooking. Eat at the bistro or take it back to your tent! 

Facilities: café, bistro, eco brewery, kiosk, mini-golf, football oval and an extensive watercraft hire.

Saturday

Breakfast on the deck of your glamorous Paperbark Glamping Tent. Croissant in one hand, a coffee in the other, and plenty of birdlife at your feet!

Explore the Waterlily Maze –

Jump into a kayak, or a canoe and enjoy a day of exploring along the Noosa Everglades. Tour options are available and can be organised at reception. 

Sunday

Check into Noosa Shores Resort

Embrace the waterfront living. The 2 and 3 bedroom apartments are located right on the Noosa River and have amazing sunset views. The resort offers free use of their kayaks, and has two private jetties so bring along your fishing gear!

Getting around couldn’t be easier. The Noosa Ferry stops right next door at Rickys Restaurant and can take you to Hastings Street and Noosaville. Alternatively, its an easy 20 minute stroll in. Walking in can have its benefits in peak season when parking in Noosa is scarce. 

Facilities: Heated Pool and undercover parking 

A: 86-88 Noosa Parade, Noosa Heads

– SURFS UP –

Grab a quick lunch at the iconic Noosa Heads Surf Club and then relax for the afternoon at Noosa Beach or my favourite, Little Cove Beach. Grab a surfboard from Main Beach at Noosa Longboards or hit the shops; plenty of little boutiques to drive your credit card crazy. 

– Dinner – 

Dinner on the beautiful Noosa River at Noosa Boathouse. Relaxed waterfront dining with a great kids menu. 

Noosaville has plenty of waterfront kids playgrounds and watercraft hire. But what I love the most are the boatshed coffee shops located at nearly every pier!

Monday

– Whale Watching –

Today is all about lifetime memories. Yes, jump onto the Noosa Wave and get alongside the ocean’s most amazing creatures. The Noosa Wave boat is a smaller vessel which means it is faster and gets you closer! The Noosa Wave Whale watching experience takes about 2 hours. My tip is TAKE sea sick tablets, don’t let the seasickness ruin your experience. 

– Lunch on the run… –

Noosa’s National park is a must when in the area. Home to some of the most beautiful Queensland beaches, hidden Fairy Pools and wandering koalas. So for the afternoon pack a lunch, and walk up from Hastings Street along the seaside boardwalk (1km, 30mins) to the start of the National Park carpark. Wear yourself out exploring any of the walks tracks as tonight you hit Miss Moneypenny’s. The place for yummy cocktails and Modern Mediterranean cuisine. Kids loved their pizzas.

Hope to SEE YOU SOON!
