Noosa is situated at the northern end of Alexandria Bay, forming the north eastern most tip of the Noosa National Park.
Noosa Heads's sub-tropical climate is tempered by the ocean so it is never blazingly hot and rarely cold enough to demand more than a pullover or cardigan. The average annual rainfall is 1709mm and lightning storms are common in the summer months. The temperatures are mild to hot ranging from 17 to 28°C in the height of Summer and 7 to 22°C in Winter.
The town of Noosa Heads is 160 kms north of Brisbane, 1100 kms north of Sydney and 20 kms east of the Bruce Highway.
Noosa's Main Beach is one of the few beaches along Australia's coastline that faces north. It has moderate waves and is safe for swimming all year round.
The coastline of the rocky headland that forms the centrepiece of Noosa National Park is interupted by small northerly facing bays. Further around the headland is Alexandria Bay. This is one of the nicer sandy beaches in Noosa.
