Noosa National Park, a chunk of wild coastline jutting into the ocean, is understandably one of Australia's most visited parks. Wallum heaths, woodlands and pockets of rainforest with hoop and kauri pine are important refuges for wildlife, including koalas and rare glossy black-cockatoos. Explore the picturesque Noosa Headland along a selection of five tracks, ranging from one kilometre to eight kilometres and catering to all fitness levels. Walk past rocky shorelines and spiky pandanus, through woodlands and rainforests with piccabeen palms, to wide beaches or lofty lookouts. In the Peregian section, stroll to the ocean beach. In the Emu Mountain section, on your way to the summit, discover wildflowers. In the East Weyba section, along unmarked vehicle trails, watch for birds – but
keep to the trails at all times.
The pictures are taken at the entrance of the Noosa River.It is such a picturesque spot everywhere you look.If you look up river, across the heads or up to the point, natures beauty just oozes out. There is plenty of things going on for all the family. A good place to swim, fish,kayak, jetski, boating.Its water activities to the max.

Wappa Falls and Dam
A short drive off of the Bruce Highway at Yandina 100 kms north of Brisbane is a relaxing swimming hole. The falls are in two separate sections. The one on the left has a crater at the top where you can relax in before you, if game enough, jump off . The children can really have some fun here. Just a 300 metres up the road you come to the Wappa Dam. Its a good place to have a picnic and enjoy the serenity of the dam and the flora and fauna. There was a family of Kookaburras that kept us amused as we had our lunch. They swooped down from the tree above our table and my daughter thought it strange how they kept landing on the epitaph. It was a great day, a swim at the falls followed by lunch at the dam.

A good weekend away camping at Boreen Point. Do some sailing ,kite surfing,kayaking or just a swim and a fish. Its a beautiful spot for some photogrphy with some lovely trees on the bank of Lake Cootharaba and a great background view.The Appollona Hotel is a lovely historic hotel to have something to drink or eat.
The sandbank at the lake goes out along way from the shore line and you can walk out to the centre of it no worries.It is a great safe place for children.
