Moderate track
Starting from the car park off Mitti Street, Noosa Heads, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Noosa Hill via the Tanglewood Track, then loops back to the starting point via the Noosa Hill Track. Explore the picturesque blue gum, bloodwood and she-oak forests of Noosa National Park as the refreshing coastal air fills into your lungs. Try to spot some cute fluffy koalas hugging the eucalyptus trees, along with echidnas wandering around. You have a chance to see a White-bellied sea eagle as well. After the walk, take a swim at the nearby beaches to cool off. Remember to protect yourself from the sun and always watch signs of strong currents. Also, look out for carpet pythons along the track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
