Noosa, the best place in Australia #holidayherethisyear

Oceanrider feels privileged to call Noosa home and truly believe that it is the best place in Australia. Top class bars, restaurants, and boutique shopping combine seamlessly with an accessible national park, picturesque beaches, and clear seas.

Even more admirable is the community’s commitment to maintaining that by protecting and conserving Noosa’s natural assets which was declared a Unesco Biosphere Reserve in 2007, the first in Queensland covering 150,000 hectares.

The area is rich in biodiversity with more than 300 bird species (that is almost half of Australians total bird varieties) 1300 plant species, 60 distinct ecosystems and hundreds of native animals. About 35% of Noosa is protected national park and it is an important pathway to over 20,000 whales annually during their migration.

Noosa is the 20th World Surfing Reserve chosen for its beautiful point breaks and visionary coastal conversation. This ensures visitors have access to the crystal clear surfing waves for years to come.

In 2018 our Plastic Free Champions eliminated 1.6 million pieces of single-use plastic from the Noosa community. Plastic Free Noosa works with cafes, restaurants, alerts and major events to eliminate the use of six key plastic items commonly used — plastic water bottles, straws, coffee cups & lids, takeaway containers, plastic cutlery & crockery, and plastic bags.

All of this combined ensures a balance between community and environment for a sustainable future for everyone to enjoy.

Noosa Oceanrider welcomes you to Noosa and wishes you an enjoyable your stay.

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.
