Day 3 - Noosa North Shore and the gateway to the Great Beach Drive

Before your departure, please contact the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service to arrange your permits, and to also receive a safety briefing, tide information and an up to date beach condition report.

Depart your accommodation to collect your 4WD hire vehicle, and head north to Noosa North Shore, the southern gateway to the Great Beach Drive.

Cross the Noosa River on the vehicle ferry at Tewantin and disembark at Noosa North Shore. Take the time to reduce the amount of air in your tyres to prepare for sand driving, and take the third beach access road to commence your Great Beach Drive experience, approximately one kilometre from the vehicle ferry.
