Noosa Biosphere News

UNESCO has given the Noosa Biosphere Reserve a new global 10-year tick of approval!

Noosa Shire was designated a globally recognised Biosphere Reserve in 2007 by UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere program –  there are  701 reserves in 124 countries and 

Noosa was Queensland’s first biosphere designation.

A Biosphere Reserve is an area with a balanced relationship between nature and people. 

The Advisory Committee acknowledged Noosa’s efforts to manage tourism, restoration of fish in the river, focus on koala populations, the Zero Emissions Noosa objective, and management of feral animals that present major threats to biodiversity conservation.

Great work Noosa!

One of Noosa’s most breathtaking experiences, there is nothing more magical than watching these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. Noosa’s aquatic backyard plays host to the humpback whales during their annual migration every winter where you can watch them frolic & play whilst taking in stunning natural cliff formations, lush emerald forests, pristine little coves and sweeping beaches.
