The weather forecast said “Rain” but we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to explore the Noosa Headland. I can’t believe how lucky we are to have this beautiful national park just over an hours drive from our front door.
We walked clockwise around the headland starting at Laguna Bay – a popular spot for surfers and sunbathers.
The track winds around the cliff-tops with some spectacular views through the rainforest trees down to some rocky secluded beaches.
Eventually we reached Alexandra Bay. Hidden away on southern side of the headland it feels a million miles away from the cares and worries of the city
Eventually the track passes through some denser forest with these wonderful Hoop Pines – native to South East Queensland.
All up about 9km, with 400m of vertical ascent. A beautiful easy walk. We’d definitely do it again!
