Sunrise Beach

Just five minutes from one of the most famous streets in Australia, Noosa’s trendy Hastings Street, lies the holiday-makers haven of Sunrise Beach. Sunrise Beach is the perfect destination for a family holiday, getaway with friends or a romantic weekend.

While nearby Noosa is buzzing with trendy cafes, designer boutiques and the chit chat of cocktail bars, Sunrise Beach enjoys a calm, laid-back ambience.

The expansive stretch of golden sand at Sunrise Beach is lapped by pristine surf rolling in from the ocean. The area is almost entirely surrounded by Noosa National Park, a wild section of coastline jutting into the ocean and fringing Lake Weyba. On a walk through the park you’ll encounter pockets of rainforest, rocky shorelines, groves of piccabeen palms, wide deserted beaches and glorious coastal views. If you’re lucky you might just spy a koala or rare glossy black cockatoo.

Head west to the hinterland and you’ll discover more beautiful National Parks along with boutique wineries, country markets and the charming mountain villages of Montville and Maleny.

Accommodation at Sunrise Beach ranges from self contained units to motel-style accommodation. Sunrise Beach can be found five minutes drive south of Noosa Heads or approximately one and a half hour’s drive north of Brisbane.
