Comments

Easy to follow walk, recommend the Tanglewood walk if it's a hot sunny day as it's shaded, whereas the coastal walk is quite exposed to the sun. Tanglewood walk is also less busy. Really great variety of track. Parking is terrible on weekends and holidays, so try to either get there really early (9am or earlier) or park somewhere else and take a bus in if you can. Also avoid parking illegally, you'll get a parking ticket for sure, they're really onto it there! (Learnt the hard way, whoops).

Lovely gentle walk

Combined this walk with Hells gate and headland walk to Sunshine beach. 3. 1/2 hours Nudist colony on the way--much preferred seal colony and certainly not the same beach beauties as was in my day (50 years ago) Highly recommend the walk to take wheelchair bound family, the elderly the young and families. Views are out of this world. You would pay millions to live near these views. parking best in town for up to 4 hours walk and picnic-at top of hasting street. Great town totally catering to tourist at every entry level DO NOT miss this walk. Thanks to my Irish mate Peter for taking me here.

Nice fairly flat walk through bush land, beach and along the coast. Hell's Gates has an amazing view and is very windy.

Used to do walk / jog here all the time when residing in Noosa.
Many great other tracks in the National Park too.
