01 Oct Noosa Fairy Pools
Noosa Heads is my favourite place on the Sunshine Coast.
I love the contrast of bustling Hasting Street to island-time in minutes at Tea Tree Bay, the white sandy beaches, the walks through Noosa National Park, wanders on a Wednesday through Eumundi markets or the delectable choice of restaurants and cafes across Noosa Heads.
Noosa is one of those places where there is always something to do, making it the perfect holiday destination no matter if you’re a backpacker or a luxury traveller.
However one place that I only just discovered, proving to be a little slice of paradise in itself – are the Noosa Fairy Pools. Located just off the track through the Noosa National Park, if you’re not paying attention you will easily miss them.
While you’re on the track of the Noosa National Park walking from the carpark, continue past Winch and Picnic Cove and you’ll find the Fairy Pools. You will see a park bench on the corner of the cliff and then there will be a little sign to the right of it, walk down the track and voila!
The pools aren’t advertised because you are required to climb down the rock face to reach them and sometimes strong waves coming crashing in to the pools, so be careful if you’re swimming when the tide is high.
If you’re looking for a little Sunday adventure when the sun’s in the sky, check out the Noosa Fairy Pools.
For us, two hours was enough time to spend chilling out by the rock pools, bring some snacks and water and keep in mind that the walk is about 45 minutes each way too (at a leisurely pace).
Location: Just after Picnic Cove and before Hells Gate. Look out for a bench a few hundred metres after the Picnic Cove sign which marks the way down to the rocks.
Time: About half a days worth of adventuring.
Tell me, what’s your favourite thing to do at Noosa Heads?
