Noosa – October in Noosa: Best Things to Do in Noosa – 28 September

October in Noosa: A Month of Sunshine and Adventures!

October is a magical time to visit Noosa, Australia. The sun shines brightly, the weather is near perfect, and the town buzzes with energy. Whether you’re a nature lover, a foodie, or an adventure seeker, there’s something for everyone in this coastal paradise.

Noosa is renowned for its pristine beaches, and October is the ideal time to enjoy them without the summer crowds. Head to the Main Beach, where you can swim, sunbathe, and even learn to surf with the help of local instructors. For a quieter escape, venture to the hidden gem, Tea Tree Bay, and relish the tranquil atmosphere.

Noosa National Park is a treasure trove of natural beauty. Hiking trails crisscross through lush rainforests, offering spectacular coastal views. Keep an eye out for wildlife, including koalas and dolphins. The park’s diverse flora is even more enchanting with the spring blooms of October.

Book a whale-watching tour to witness these majestic creatures on their annual migration along the coast. The sight of humpback whales breaching, and tail-slapping is awe-inspiring.

Don’t forget to document your adventures in Noosa. Take plenty of photos and videos to share your experiences with friends and family or on social media. Noosa’s natural beauty provides the perfect backdrop for stunning shots.

October In Noosa

Great Noosa Trail Walk

30 Sep – 2 Oct

The Great Noosa Trail Walk takes walkers through the Noosa country towns of Cooroy, Kin Kin, Cooran and Pomona.

The 56km walk, over three days, on the Noosa Biosphere Trail, brings together community groups from the local towns to highlight the beautiful landscapes of the Noosa Hinterland Region.

Walkers camp overnight and have their luggage transported each day to the next location so they can enjoy the day’s walk. Spectacular countryside scenes are experienced along with good country hospitality and cheer. The event sells out each year!

Funds raised go back into these communities and also to sponsor Trees for Tourism, bringing shade to the future. The event is owned and run by the Cooroy Future Group Inc.
