Noosa River

The Noosa River has its beginnings in the pristine wilderness of the Cooloola section of Great Sandy National Park. The river meanders through the Noosa Everglades, and a series of lakes and mangrove forests, before emptying into the sea at Noosa Heads.

It is an easy walk from your Noosa accommodation at the Cove to the River. Walk to the River mouth along Main Beach and explore the Noosa Woods parklands.

Hire a canoe, stand-up paddle or kayak from Noosa Beach surf hire on Hastings Street or Boardwalk Boat Hire at the Hastings Street Jetty behind the Sofitel.

or families looking to explore Noosa’s scenic riverfront, the River Ferry departing from the Hastings Street Jetty is a fantastic choice. With the convenience of a hop-on, hop-off day pass, you can easily navigate between the lively Hastings Street and the charming Tewantin Jetty. It’s a relaxed and family-friendly way to enjoy the picturesque Noosa River, offering a delightful journey that allows you to explore the town’s attractions at your own pace.

Sipping champagne as you soak in the breathtaking sights along the water adds a touch of luxury to your Noosa experience. The tranquil river provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening or a memorable celebration.
