There is always a Festival of some sort happening in Noosa and June is no exception with the NOOSA FESTIVAL OF WATER happening on Sunday June 26. This annual event is held at the Noosa Botanic Gardens and is a free family event. A perfect way to start off the school holidays.
You can take in one of the many wildlife and eco presentations, including snakes, reptiles and dingoes. There will be fishing tips to be had or if you are an early riser you could enter the Lake Mac Bass Fishing Comp which tags and releases the fish. Looking for a lazy day then you could simply sit back and enjoy free music and entertainment including the Gubbi Gubbi aboriginal dancers, in the amphitheatre which overlooks Lake Macdonald. You can bring along your picnic basket or just enjoy the foods for sale around the gardens.
There will be free paddle boarding and kayaks so if you have been wanting to try out these fabulous sports this could be for you in the lovely flat lake conditions.

Noosa's Most Famous Mountain.
Have you ever driven around Noosa or been down on the Noosa River or perhaps playing with your pets at Noosa Dog Beach and looked at that ever present pointy mountain over to the west?
Well if you have ever wondered what it’s called, that is Mount Cooroy, and it’s a landmark for us Noosa locals. Whenever we see it, we know home is not far away. My favourite place to Mount Cooroy is from Noosa River or Noosa Spit/Noosa Dog Beach. It’s a beautiful upside down conical shaped monolith that reaches 438 m high and watches over us.
Access is not available all year, except in October, every year it is opened up for public access for Cooroy Mountain Festival, unless you are lucky to know some of the owners of the farmland around Mount Cooroy.
The name was originally called Mount Coorooey, from the Aboriginal word for possum, Kurui. Politically correctly; Kuri’bigal’ba is the indigenous name from the now extinct locals from this area, Kabi.
So if you are after one of THE best views in the Noosa region then start training and get fit and walk Mt Cooroy.

Calling all Golfers
There are four golf courses in Noosa with at least another dozen within a 45 minute drive from Noosa. The four are very different style courses; the Noosa Par3 course, the private Noosa Valley Golf near Doonan, the Tewantin-Noosa public course in Tewantin and the Noosa Springs resort club.
The largest and oldest club in Noosa is the Tewantin-Noosa course. The course is normally pretty busy so bookings are necessary most of the time. The website has all the details, check out www.noosagolf.com.au they have a great pro shop and a clubhouse with a bar and bistro. There is a free practice range but of course you’ll have to bring your own balls. The course itself is picturesque with an abundance of bird life and kangaroos.
If you want to fit in with the locals they have welcoming comps just about every day. You may need to have a Golf Link handicap to join in but they normally have a few single openings. Give the pro shop a call the day before or even on the day.
Noosa Springs resort is the closest to the tourist areas in Noosa Heads. The springs have all the amenities you would expect at a resort club. Their website www.noosasprings.com.au has all the info you’ll need. They have a great practice range that is open some nights. If you buy a bucket of balls make sure you take advantage of a great practice.
While reasonably challenging the course is ‘manicured’ as long as you stay on the fairways and greens. The course is a lot less forgiving than Tewantin. If you’re very far off the fairway you’re probably going to take a drop. You don’t want to be too ambitious in your search for missing balls given the hidden dangers lurking in the dense rough. There are a few hills but chances are you’ll be driving an electric cart.
Don’t forget to take advantage of the Day Spa in Noosa Springs.

Looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend? There are so many kid friendly activities in Noosa such as fishing, water sports, surfing, and hiking. Now is such a beautiful time of year, so why not take advantage of this beautiful weather Noosa has to offer and go exploring through the Noosa National Park or hire a boat and take the family out fishing.
Noosa National Park is situated at the end of Hastings Street and features amazing coastal scenery and is the home to many national animals. The kids will have a great time exploring and keeping an eye out for lizards and birds. You never know you might even spot a koala or two. If you look out to the ocean you might see some dolphins swimming up the coastline. From August through to November you might see pods of whales frolicking as they make their way up Queensland’s coastline. You can explore on your own or book a tour with one of the eco-tour companies. Once you have finished why not hire a tinnie for an hour or so and take the kids out fishing and see if they can catch their own dinner. You can cruise through Noosa River up Hastings Street and take in the surrounds. What an amazing way to spend your day in Noosa.
