Tewantin

Tewantin is a small, friendly village located on the Noosa River and is the launching point for the vehicular ferry to the Noosa North Shore, the Great Sandy National Park and Fraser Island.

Historic Tewantin was originally a timber town and the river port for the Noosa area. In the late 1800s Tewantin was a small town prospering on the local gold, fishing and timber industries.

For some great views of the Noosa River, relax and enjoy a picnic at Memorial Park or head to Noosa Marina, a bustling complex on the river, for coffee, a drink, an alfresco lunch or evening meal, all with river views. The 40-berth marina is also home to the Noosa Marina Visitor Information Centre, specialty shops and a private gallery. Each Sunday the Noosa Marina Markets display craft and produce stalls on the boardwalk.

Discover Tewantin's history by visiting the friendly volunteers at Parkyn's Hut on Poinciana Avenue. The hut is also an accredited Visitor Information Centre.

Don’t miss the Noosa Regional Gallery, home to beautiful, locally crafted gifts available for sale, and a host of changing exhibitions from local exhibits to national and international artworks.
