Just 10 minutes’ drive from the hustle and bustle of Hastings Street, you’ll find yourself in tranquil, peaceful Noosa Valley. With its picture-postcard countryside and abundant wildlife, this area offers a refreshing contrast to the more developed parts of the Sunshine Coast.
The breath-taking natural beauty of the area and crisp rainforest air attracts visitors from far and wide. The towns of Yandina and Eumundi are worth visiting, especially when the famous Eumundi Markets are in full swing. Pretty Yandina has good examples of early Queensland architecture and features a number of tourist attractions and superb fine dining options.
Sprawling country retreats, wineries with rolling vineyards, spas, golf courses and bed-and-breakfasts dot the Noosa Valley landscape. There are a range of accommodation options including some luxury retreats set in immaculately landscaped gardens. Local restaurants are proud of their menus which showcase the richness and diversity of farm produce from the Noosa and Sunshine Coast hinterlands.
Horse riding tours, day trips, bush walks and river cruises are great ways to explore the Valley and the surrounding National Parks. Take a drive or hike to the top of Mount Ninderry, Dunethin Rock or Point Glorious for magnificent views of the valley and surrounds.
