Noosa North Shore Beach (Teewah Beach)
Just across the river mouth from Noosa Main Beach is a different world altogether. You won’t find any beachside bistros or boutiques here, just mile after mile of pristine sandy beach.
The beaches of Noosa North Shore form an unbroken stretch all the way from the Noosa River to Double Island Point over 50 kilometres to the north. Given the vastness of this beach it isn’t surprising that the most popular modes of transport are either by 4WD or on horseback. Permits are generally required for driving.
Backing much of the northern section of the beach is the Great Sandy National Park. This extensive area of wilderness encompasses mangrove swamps, rainforest, ancient sand dunes and the coloured sands of Teewah beach. These sands feature various hues of red, brown and yellow formed from the iron-rich minerals in the local clay and sand.
The North Shore is popular for numerous outdoor pursuits with anglers and surfers thinking nothing of jumping in a 4x4, catching the Tewantin ferry and driving up the coast. It is also a great spot for camping with kangaroos and native birdlife regular campsite visitors.
