Noosa National Park has trails that can be far from an easy stroll, especially in the heat of summer, and especially if you started your walk back on Hastings Street so be prepared with water and take your time.

This is one of the most accessible national parks. Just a short walk from the center of Noosa and there is even a lovely little coffee place that serves food as well at the commencement of the walk.
