The Noosa Heads and surrounding area is popular with holidaymakers, who wish to visit Noosa for its sophisticated cafes, bars and restaurants, white sandy beaches (both Laguna Bay & Noosa River), national parks, the proximity of nature and wildlife to the built areas and busy calendar of cultural, sport and community events.

Noosa is approximately 1 hour 45minutes drive north of Brisbane Airport and 40 minutes north of the Sunshine Coast’s domestic Airport near Maroochydore, with regular flights servicing both.
Conservation and Sustainable Development
Noosa and its community has protected its natural environment and resisted proposed sand mining and over-development by creating significant areas of national park. Noosa Council implemented sustainability planning policies such as traffic management, limits on high-rise buildings and population density.
Noosa's ongoing commitment to managing its development while protecting the natural environment has been recognised by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). The entire local government area was declared a biosphere reserve at a meeting in Paris, France, in September 2007.
