This on most days is a tranquil river sheltered from the sea by a sand bar – a water wonderland with untold activities for old and young alike – we stayed on Gympie Boulevard and daily walked along the bank for a morning coffee where there is plenty of seating – you can rent almost anything that floats – and an amazing sunset to boat - sorry boot

From spectacular waterfront homes, to fabulous restaurants and cafes, from hard-working boat-sheds, to pristine virgin native mangroves and low level forests, the Noosa river is quintessentially Australian. An excellent and beautiful snapshot of the Australian way of life.

We went down the river on a sunset cruise which was really good and only takes an hour or so it was really worth it even if the weather wasn’t great

We stayed opposite with a river view - busy towpath - lots of boat traffic - handy ferry with a number of stops including Hastings street - lots of good restuarants in the area - we had a great week here and will be going again.

Obviously, the best way to appreciate the Noosa River is to hire a boat etc and spend an hour or so cruising the waterway,
.
We hired a boat for two hours from U-Drive in Noosaville, ($130) and spent the time cruising down through the Noosa Sound, across to North Beach and then meandering up-river, past the Noosa Marina, before returning to the jetty.

A wonderful, relaxing and enjoying experience.

The best alternative and access to the River is to walk the Noosaville river foreshore between the Noosa Rowing & Yacht Club and the end of Gympie Terrace (nearly 2 km in length).

Between these two points there are 8 wharves/jetties from which you can hire a range of water craft, catch the Noosa Ferry (3 pick-up points) and purchase tickets for excursions on the river, and beyond. Morning coffee available at most wharves.

The Foreshore has numerous BBQ’s and covered seating. It is a very popular walking venue along the river, with families etc taking advantage of the river by swimming and wading.

This Foreshore provides people with the opportunity to interact and appreciate the River in all its beauty,
.
Sunrise and sunset along the River is spectacular.

Walk by the river, let the kids run free in the pirate playground, take a free ride (sunset is the best) or go for a dip in calm water - Noosa river ticks all boxes for a relaxing family day out

Walking beside the Noosa River. Lots of holiday river activities, kayaks, stand-up boards, boats. Magic drinking prosecco at river Barefoot restaurant as twilight falls.

Beautifully clean waterfront space with sand for kids to play on. Many people were fishing. Boat hires galore, amongst other activities. Lots of bench seats and bins. And the.n on the other side of the river is a superb choice of restaurants and cafes. Hastings street is overrated and there is no where to park. We felt we nailed it along Gympie terrace. Just superb.
