The quick and convenient Noosa North Shore Car Ferry operates 7 days a week from Tewantin to take you to Noosa North Shore which showcases the region's unspoilt nature to perfection - vehicle permits required, please see below for details.

Things to do

Find your own spot along the long stretch of beach to relax, or for the more energetic, why not try horse riding, four wheel driving, swimming, fishing and surfing? Refuel at the local family-friendly restaurant.

Go kayaking on the unspoilt Lake Cooroibah or see the wonderful array of native wildlife including kangaroos and birds. Noosa North Shore has various accommodation options, so it’s a great day out or a perfect place to chill out longer.

Drive along the beach past Teewah and the Coloured Sands, all the way to Rainbow Beach, Double Island Point and on to the Fraser Island vehicular ferry.
