Noosa National Park is one of the wonders of South East Queensland so come along and enjoy beaches and bush with fabulous views.  The plan is to park the cars at Noosa Woods and walk along the boardwalk past Noosa Beach to the National Park. Then it is out on track 4, the Coastal Track, to Ti-Tree Bay and Granite Bay to Alexandria Bay and over the headland to the north end of Sunshine Beach. Then we will return via a walk through the bushland, including Track 2, and possibly Track 3 to Noosa Hill.

 

It will be a fairly long, but easy, trip. Pack your morning tea and lunch snacks. No beaches in the park are patrolled, so I suggest swimmers wait till we are back at Noosa Beach late in the walk, where there are flags and facilities. We will, of course, end at a coffee shop in Noosa.

 

So, come along for an awesome day at Noosa on my first walk as leader for the Club. Fear not, it’s an area I know, and it’s hard to get lost. Bring all the usual daywalk stuff, including swim gear if you so wish. I have been advised to set the limit on the number of walkers at 16, so nominate early. (Car trip - Distance  149 km from Red Hill – travel time 1 hr 48 mins). Also, I will delegate the role of car marshall to another member, as I will meet you all at Noosa Woods car park.
