Noosa Resort Frequently Asked Questions
Can we manage without a car?
You can easily manage without a car, although if you wish, car hire is available just around the corner. However, with the beach 40 steps away, convenience supermarkets and a 7 eleven store just up the street and the most wonderful selection of cafes and restaurants just at our gate, why do you need a car? Tours will pick you up at the front of the complex, a walk of approx 200 m brings you to the taxi rank or bus station and a 20 minute walk takes you to Noosa Junction for the larger supermarkets and more shopping. (although you may need to get a taxi back with all your purchases to carry)!
