Some of South East Queensland's most picturesque coastline can be seen in Noosa National Park. The park includes the popular scenic headland at Noosa Heads, heath plains and high dunes around Lake Weyba (a large, shallow, saltwater lake in the Noosa River system), Emu Mountain and coastal lowlands extending south towards Coolum Beach. The park is home to vulnerable and endangered wildlife such as the glossy black-cockatoo, ground parrot, koala, red goshawk, wallum froglet, swamp orchid and Christmas bells. Open woodlands with a heath understorey and low wallum heath cover most of the park. Hoop and kauri pines tower above small rainforest pockets growing on sand in sheltered sites away from the sea breezes.
For the older kids thier is the introduction to surfing with many days of small waves breaking along the northern shoreline.
For those not so water inclined or a bit younger there are rocky beaches to explore along with an extensive trail network that can fill most of a day.
When the surf is up watching the waves break on the seaward side of the point can be quite exciting.
