Cooloothin Conservation Park

Cooloothin Conservation Park, Hiking & Walking Trails, Cootharaba QLD

The terrain is covered primarily with evergreen, deciduous forest, and it’s an incredibly lush destination for walking or hiking along the different trails. Cool down in the swimming hole, too; this is a place that only locals know about, so you can be sure you won’t be surrounded by too many people. Since there are no tourist facilities here, bring your own supplies and wear comfortable trekking shoes for a safe trip. It’s always best to check the weather forecast ahead of time too.

After exploring Cooloothin Conservation Park, check out Lake Cootharaba nearby. This stunning lake is a water sports paradise: here, you can go paddling, kayaking, canoeing, kitesurfing, and even sailing. The lake hosts numerous yachting and windsurfing competitions, too. Lake Cootharaba is the biggest lake on the Noosa River, and its shores are excellent places to camp and fish. Meanwhile, the inland area remains pristine and is home to many kinds of wildlife.

The Boreen Point Campground is another great place for camping near the park. It’s a popular family holiday destination tucked right into the white beaches of Lake Cootharaba. The campgrounds are just 25 minutes away by car from downtown Noosa, yet it provides campers with a tranquil getaway with the best of both beach and bush environments.

A general store and family pub are also within walking distance, while kayaks and paddleboards can be rented. The Boreen Point Campground facilities include a camp kitchen powered by gas BBQs, hot showers, flushing toilets, a charging station, and a septic dump point.

The Cooloothin Conservation Park and the many nearby attractions are terrific destinations to visit on the Sunshine Coast.
