Located just a short drive from Peregian Beach, Emu Mountain is a hidden gem that offers stunning views of the coast and hinterland. The walk to the summit is not too strenuous and takes around 30 minutes, making it a great option for families or those looking for a leisurely stroll. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views that stretch from Noosa to Coolum.
Peregian Beach Markets
While not exactly hidden, the Peregian Beach Markets are definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for a unique shopping experience. Held on the first and third Sunday of each month, the markets feature over 100 stalls selling everything from local produce to handmade crafts. It’s a great opportunity to meet local artisans and sample some of the region’s best produce.
Noosa National Park
While Noosa National Park is a popular attraction, there are plenty of off-the-beaten-path trails and beaches to explore. The park is home to a variety of wildlife, including koalas, dolphins, and sea turtles. Some of the lesser-known trails include the Tanglewood Track and the Alexandria Bay Track, which lead to secluded beaches and offer stunning views of the coastline.
