Transfer back to Hervey Bay by catamaran with Kingfisher Bay Resort then continue south to Noosa. This iconic destination is legendary in Australia, in particular for the beautiful Noosa National Park, and makes for a great place to explore. With a protected cove beach that almost guarantees year-round surfing opportunities, as well as amazing seascapes, Noosa is a popular destination with visitors to this region. If you want to indulge with a spot of dining and shopping, Hastings Street is the heart of Noosa and is brimming with great boutiques and gourmet restaurants.

Day 6-7

Noosa

Spend the next couple of days relaxing in Noosa and exploring at leisure. You may wish to go for a stroll through Noosa National Park and seek out koalas in the native eucalyptus trees, go horse-back riding through the bushland or give surfing a go and spend the day in the warm, crystal-clear waters.

Day 8

Noosa to Brisbane (141km)

Leave Noosa this morning and return to the Bruce Highway on your way to Brisbane in the south. The capital of Queensland, Brisbane is a great combination of endless sunshine, friendly people and myriad attractions that have long since transformed it into a popular holiday destination. Spend a little time here before returning your hire car – this marks the end of your trip.
