Noosa in July with a toddler

Hi there have just booked flights for July for hubby, my sons 3 and 10 months. Can anyone tell me if it is usually too cool to swim? I've googled it and predictions Are around the early 20s. Also any suggestions on family friendly hotels and activities. We are going for 7 nights. Thanks so much :-)

only people in the water are poms ,kiwis and Sth Australians.

Only possible comfort swims would be in warmed resort pools

Make sure you book a hotel with a heated pool. For me it's definitely too cold in July and I am from Melbourne. We just got back yesterday and the water temp was just perfect.

Too cold in July for this NZer. The latest would be May and the earliest September. Between those dates I head for the tropics - North Queensland or the south pacific islands like Fiji.

I swim all year round, July is the most bracing with water temps around 20C but if there's a breeze, it feels colder.

Like Surfoz, I'm a Queenslander who happily swims all year round at Noosa. Yes, it's cold but if it's a sunny day and the water is lovely and clear, it's just too inviting to pass up.

Most places up there are family friendly. It's hard to suggest accommodation options without knowing your budget. For a starting point of prices have a look at Wotif.com. If you see some places you like, post and ask us what we think of them.

I'm not sure if you're budget will permit but the villas at Viridian are sensational. It is a bit of a walk up the hill but the views are stunning and the accommodation is of a high standard.
