1: Noosa Headland National Park Walk
Have kids with buckets of energy to burn? This spectacular walk is one for you! Whilst you can begin the trek at either end of the headland, we recommend starting at Sunshine Beach and embarking on a lush, green four hour walk that passes Hells Gate, Alexandra Bay, and Granite Bay to finish at Hasting Street where you can watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand as the kids let loose on the beach.
2: Noosa Aquatic Centre – The Inflated Obstacle Course
The product of every 8 to 16 year olds dreams, or perhaps everyone’s dream! The inflatable obstacle course at Noosa Aquatic Centre is open for business every day from 12- 3pm and is the perfect excuse to get the family together for a splash of fun. Noosa Aquatic centre also has a cafe and BBQ facilities available for your use, just don’t forget a towel.
3: Fairy Pools
Love exploring the unbeaten track? Midway along the Noosa Headland walk, you can scramble down the rocks near Granite Bay to find the ‘Fairy Pools’. These natural tidal pools are home to three different types of coral and numerous crustaceans. If you catch the pools on a good day, at low-mid tide, you’re in for a relaxing break along your big walk.
4: Rooftop Cinema in Cooroy
If Friday evening creeps up and you have no plans, grab the family and head to Cooroy Roof Top Cinema for a screening of the awesome Lego Movie. This family favourite kicks off at 6:30pm and is entry by donation.
