Are you looking for Noosa resorts for families and the top things to do with kids? We have put together the top 5 things to do in Noosa that’s easily accessible from our family friendly resort.

So, you can get excited about planning your family holiday to Noosa!

1. Unwind and play along the Noosa River

The Noosa River is a great part of Noosa to unwind, play and socialise. The Noosa River Pirate Playground is a kid’s paradise with six slides, rope climbing apparatus, three-person swing and a large, fenced wheelchair-accessible swing. It’s covered by sail shades to keep your little ones safe from the sun.

Take the kayaks or a boat to one of several sandbar islands around the Spit, where you can refresh yourselves in the calm waters, only accessible by boat or kayak. Navigating the calm waterways as a family is a fun way to take in the gorgeous natural sights.

2. Beach, beach, beach!

Noosa is renowned for its incredible beaches, so if your family loves the beach, then you’ll be spoilt for choice. Noosa Main Beach is so popular because the headland often provides shelter from the wind, so the calmer conditions are ideal for small children. It’s patrolled year-round, so you and your family will feel even more safe!

The beaches throughout the National Park are more secluded, but they can get stronger currents and some areas are rocky. So, these little bays are fab for a leisurely picnic and for stronger swimmers.

To enjoy long and uninterrupted sandy walks, follow the coast road south to discover Noosa’s Eastern beaches. Check out the quaint villages of Sunshine Beach and Peregian Beach for some food and playtime! Here you’ll find skate parks, playgrounds, kid-friendly restaurants and open spaces for family activities.

3. Running wild in the Noosa National Park

The Noosa National Park is an excellent place for the entire family to let off some steam. This stunning, protected headland can be reached by the boardwalk from Noosa beach. With multiple lookouts and beaches along the coastal track, break for a picnic, to take a dip or to spot sea turtles and dolphins! Keep your eyes peeled for the migrating humpback whales, which can often be seen from the lookouts between May and November.

Plenty of wildlife, including koalas and tropical birds call the 40 km² park home. There’re several trails that will guide you through the park and along the coastline, where it’s easy to embrace nature, so it’s a great activity to do more than once on your holiday.
