visiting journalist program

Tourism Noosa runs a Visiting Journalist Program that targets travel and lifestyle media nationally and internationally.

The program is based on the principle that journalists produce motivating and detailed coverage on our destination after experiencing the product first-hand. Their personal experience has proven to have a great impact on the domestic and international travelling public.

Tourism Noosa hosts about 70 media famils a year from a variety of print publications to broadcast media across Australia and New Zealand.

Both nationally and internationally, the Visiting Journalist Program integrates Tourism Noosa’s overall marketing approach for the region and aims to encourage visitors to experience the variety of holiday options on offer.

Noosa Notes

Walk and cruise Noosa in winter

Walk and cruise Noosa in winter

​Marco! … Polo! Usually the sound of summer in Australia. I’m overlooking the pool at Mantra French Quarter Noosa with a glass of Lanson in hand and it is supposedly winter. Don’t tell the kids. Perhaps winter never comes to Noosa...

Close encounters with whales


Just how close to a humpback whale would you feel comfortable being? Watching the majesty of humpbacks as they travel through the warm waters off Noosa on their annual migration north is an unforgettable sight – their playful tail slaps, breaches, sprays and fin ‘waves’ seem even more incredible when you consider their size … around 15m in length and weighing more than 35 tonnes!

See the best views of Noosa from Mt Tinbeerwah, four-wheel-drive past Noosa’s ‘coloured sands’ along Noosa North Shore or glamp it up in a ‘Luxury Teepee Tent.’ Relax on the water at Lake Cootharaba or kayak through Australia’s only Everglades, and its football fields of water lilies. It’s time, to start your NEW Noosa adventure!
