Need a bit of R&R? Unwind at Noosa’s blissful wellness destinations



With its abundance of heavenly beaches to laze on, natural gems to explore, invigorating activities to try out and places to rest up in style, Noosa has got more than enough to help you relax and rejuvenate. So you can hit the reset button whilst on your Noosa getaway, here are a few sure ways to ensure you leave completely revitalised ...


Take a relaxing walk through Noosa National Park
Start your morning with an invigorating dip in the ocean, then stroll across to the lush surrounds of Noosa National Park. The park provides plenty of heart-pumping scenic trails to explore, all offering different views along the way. The Tanglewood Track is a favourite amongst keen walkers, winding through coastal rainforest all the way through to Alexandria Bay and Sunshine Beach. If you would like a little guidance on your walk, give Noosa Running Tours a buzz – the team operates morning and afternoon walking tours through the Noosa National Park.

Stay and play at this golf and spa resort
With a huge golf course, a luxe award-winning spa, delicious dining and lavish accommodation, Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort is sure to impress. Golfers can tee off on the pristine fairways of the 18-hole golf course, before refuelling at Noosa Springs’ resident restaurant Relish, where mouth-watering fare and fresh local produce are always on the table. Looking to truly relax in style? The Noosa Springs day spa boasts facilities that will rejuvenate the senses – have a float in the hydro-massage and flotation pool, sweat it out in the steam room, then cool off in the blitz shower.

Spoil yourself by booking a massage online with Massage and Wellbeing.com and you will find yourself in blissed-out paradise in no time. The well-trained massage therapists at Massage and Wellbeing.com offer in-home and apartment treatments, or you can pop into the massage clinic in Sunshine Beach.

Cool off with a dip in Noosa’s big blue
With summer just around the corner, there is no excuse to not be in the water. Noosa’s Main Beach is the perfect place to chill out and cool off. This idyllic coastal stretch is one of only a few north-facing beaches on the east coast of Australia, meaning the waves are small and the water is crystal clear. You can do a few laps along the stretch, take a kayak out onto the calm waters or just soak up the sun on the sand. We recommend doing it all and more.
