Walk through wildflowers at festival

Walkers surrounded by wildflowers

Noosa will showcase nature at its best including its spring wildflowers as part of the annual Sunshine Coast Wildflower Festival during August.

The full program runs from 15-30 August and offers 18 free walks and other activities at different Sunshine Coast locations from the Glass House Mountains in the south to Noosa North Shore. Coordinated by Sunshine Coast Council, each activity has a particular theme, including local wildflowers and wildlife, fire management for biodiversity and traditional cultural landscape.

Noosa Integrated Catchment Association (NICA) will be guiding four walks in the Noosa area as part of the festival. The walks have been chosen to enable people to explore some of the many different habitats and plant communities around Noosa.

NICA’s four walks will be led by experienced local guides – botanists and naturalists – who will inspire and share their knowledge along the way. The public can choose from the popular Headland Section of Noosa National Park, a hidden gem in Girraween Nature Refuge at Noosa Heads, the woodlands of Arthur Harrold Nature Refuge at Noosa North Shore and a discovery tour of the mysteries of mangroves at Noosaville. This last walk is fully accessible to people in wheelchairs.

The full program of walks and activities can be found on the Sunshine Coast Council website;
