AUSTRALIA’S NATURE COAST: Queensland
Following the coast road right down to South East Queensland brings you to Australia’s Nature Coast: a region that stretches from the Fraser Coast and beautiful Fraser Island, to Noosa and the Glass House Mountains.
Australia’s Nature Coast is a region that is filled with natural beauty, along with a range of adventure experiences, from bushwalking and hiking, to 4WDing, farm experiences, fishing charters, food trails, water sports and whale watching.
You’ll find an abundance of National Parks and gardens to explore as you travel through the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, the Glass House Mountains and Pumicestone Passage. Visit Noosa and you’ll have the chance to experience the wonders of the Cooloola National Park, with remote golden beaches, sub-tropical rainforests, freshwater creeks and some of the largest and most colourful coastal sand dune systems in the world. The Cooloola National Park is World Heritage listed and covers around 70,000 hectares. It’s also home to the southern hemisphere’s largest pine plantation.
One of the best things to see here is Rainbow Beach, with coloured sand dunes that reach up to 200 metres high. And if you have the chance, visit Double Island Point with its towering rainforest growing on the sand, and the Double Island Point Lighthouse on the rocky headland.
