    Default Noosa question

    So we're going on our first family holiday to Noosa. We are leaving end March /early April and I'm a little worried about the weather. (See pic). Does this mean it could rain all day with no sun? What are we to do at a resort on rainy days

    I've only been to Noosa once and it was nearly 10 years ago. Does the resort have a kids club?

    Also- that weather is like a month away. Most meteorologists can't predict the correct weather a week away. I wouldn't stress too much about it yet.

    No, it doesn't have kids club.

    Yeah I know it's a month away, but there's lots of rain around the forecast

    Look the weather people get it wrong a lot, but it could rain or storm a little at that time. Up here though it usually passes pretty quickly and it's not usually a cold weather rain, it's still warm and humid.

    If you have a day or so of rain you can go do markets somewhere else on the Sunshine Coast (it's a big place) or visit a themed attraction or even a different beach.

    You'll have fun each way.

    Thanks. I'll have to research some wet weather attractions then.

    UnderwaterWorld is a good rainy day activity.

    The Noosa Aquatic Centre has a cafe and an undercover area to sit and watch your kids swim, the kids pools have sails over them.

    People watch in Hastings St over some yummy food, my recommendation would be the Noosa Beach House Bar, menu here http://www.noosabeachhousepk.com.au/alldaymenu

    Take an Everglades tour - this is beautiful

    Take the Noosa Ferry and enjoy the beautiful Noosa river. Get on behind the Sheraton in Hastings st and it will take you to Tewantin (not a lot at tewantin so get back on the ferry after half an hour or so but it's a nice way to while away a rainy afternoon), lots of stops on the way. My kids love the ferry!

    Drive out to beautiful Eumundi, try Berkelouw Books for a lovely way to spend a morning, good coffee too. The markets are on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

    Cooking School if that's your thing? Try the Spirit House.

    Quite often on rainy days the rain is intermittent. And if its not too cold the rain isn't too troublesome.

    If you have a car you can go up to Montville. Its in the hinterland and can be a fun day out. We've been up there in the rain and its still lovely. You can sit and have devonshire tea and people watch, wander around the crafty shops, soak up the mountain atmosphere, and visit Mary Cairncross park which has an interesting little visitor centre with a small dinosaur display and a rainforest walk (which is fine in light rain if you bring a raincoat). There's a lovely cafe with awesome views there too.

    There's Underwater World at Mooloolaba as mentioned by PP. Kids always have a good day there and its almost all inside.

    You can play at the beach in the non rainy patches. If the sand is damp its perfect for building sandcastles and the beaches at Noosa are stunning.

    Noosa National Park can be good to walk around as long as you bring a raincoat and are careful. Rainy weather can help keep people away so that its actually possible to visit the National Park. Normally it gets so crowded that you can't get a carpark anywhere near it (same for the beaches actually). So I think that rainy weather can be a huge advantage for visiting Noosa as long as its not constantly torrential (which is very unlikely).

    I think you'll have a fantastic time!

    Ah you ladies are all so lovely.
    I'll definitely log into BH while up there and use some of the ideas!
    What about the Australia zoo?

    Australia Zoo is a little bit of a drive but its certainly a fun day out. Its very expensive though and if you've been to Taronga in Sydney you might be a bit disappointed because I think Taronga is definitely better.

    I must admit the kids have always had fun when we've gone. Its mostly outdoors so doesn't provide a lot of rain protection but as long as you have raincoats you should be fine. The food court is well protected from rain, and the crociseum too.
