Cooloola, Great Sandy National Park

National Parks and Reserves

In Cooloola, Great Sandy National Park, you can experience the majesty of nature’s sculpture in sand. Massive dunes, towering cliffs of coloured sands and wide ocean beaches have been etched by wind and water. Tall forests, fragrant wildflower heaths and paperbark swamps decorate the sands. Water features abound, including surf, freshwater lakes and the undisturbed upper Noosa River.

Walk one of the many scenic tracks to explore places such as the historic Double Island Point lighthouse. Pack a tent to hike the two to four day Cooloola Wilderness Trail. Drive along Cooloola’s eastern beach or take the Cooloola Way and Freshwater Road through tall open forests and heathlands. You will need a four wheel drive vehicle with high clearance to enjoy driving the sand tracks or the beach at low tide. Paddle peacefully through the serene reaches of the Upper Noosa River.

Escape the hustle and bustle with an unforgettable camping trip. Choose from a variety of camping areas from well-appointed camping areas with facilities to walkers’ camps with nothing but birdsong and sea breezes for company. Visit the helpful information centres at Tewantin and Rainbow Beach.
