Oh, and I just remembered Bli Bli castle! Its near Noosa and is wet weather friendly. Its not good if you get claustrophobic but its a rather unique attraction!
And the Ginger Factory at Buderim is also close to Noosa. Its been done up and has a great undercover cafe and ice creamery and shop selling all kinds of ginger products. There's a steam train and an indoor ride 'Overboard' which has to be experienced to be believed. Its a lot like Its a Small World at Disneyland. We love it but be warned the song will be stuck in your head for days.

The ginger factory in Yandina isn't too far from Noosa and ok on a rainy day.
More rainy day options at other end of the coast. Will you have a car?
There's underwater world, a few of those indoor kids play centres & our largest shopping centre is at Maroochydore. There's a games arcade along Mooloolaba esplanade.

Yes, hiring a car.

There's also top shots at Maroochydore which has mini golf and a few other activities. It's partly covered so would be ok if not raining too heavily.
Hopefully the weather forecast is wrong and you get lots of sunshine! At least you aren't here this weekend..the weather is miserable with flooding and torrential rain!

Quick question, is Noosaville and Noosa apart of Noosa Heads or separate suburb?
Also the weather is looking a little better, haha.

Noosa is Noosa Heads. That is really the part near Hastings St and the surf. Noosaville is really he part on the river. In terms of weather, it's been a beautiful, warm sunny weekend here! Hope the sunshine stays out for your holiday OP.

Are the Eumundi markets ok for children? Normally we don't take them to markets because they can't "walk" from stall to stall looking at all the nice things
Ive heard mixed reviews about Underwater world. We've been to Melbourne Aquarium and they did enjoy that.
Australia zoo seems like a big outing and we see lots of zoos in Melbourne (we have a pass and see Melbourne, werribee and Healsville). If Aust zoo is wow in comparison , then we'll take the drive out.
Also Montville is another place we are thinking of taking them.

We love underwater world and have a season pass. It's a good size for my little ones (3 and almost 2) and they love looking at all the sea life. The seal show is good to watch if you are there at the right time. Bonus is it's across the road from the beach so you can add in a walk and maybe fish and chips for lunch or something. We usually only spend an hour or 2, but if you haven't been before it might take you longer depending on how much time you spend looking around.
Australia Zoo is definitely a big outing. Full day needed to see it all, especially if you want to watch the shows. Massive day for little kids. I haven't been to the other zoos you have mentioned so can't compare, but I think it's a pretty amazing zoo. We take a picnic lunch and hire a locker to put it in so we can eat whenever we like (lots of lovely areas to sit) and don't have to spend ridiculous dollars on average food at the shops there.
Montville is lovely but be prepared to do a bit of walking up and down the Main Street where all the lovely shops and cafés are. A lot of the shops aren't overly kid friendly in terms of lots of breakables and not much space. There's some great places to eat with amazing views.
Yell out if you have anymore questions

Australia Zoo is a full day outing, and is always better during school holidays as they have more activities going (pony rides etc). Their midday wildlife show in the 'Crocoseum' is fun the first time and there's usually one of the Irwin's involved. Last time we went my 5 year old absolutely loved it and declared it the best day ever, and my 9 year old was bored...
I'd skip the Eumundi markets if you don't normally take the kids to markets. They're beautiful markets, but not any better geared towards kids than most markets of that type. There's still lots of walking from stall to stall and the kids get bored more quickly than the adults.
Montville is nice, and if its raining I find it particularly magical as it sometimes gets misty. Mary Cairncross Park is near there and has a big field, small playground, rainforest walk and cafe with an awe inspiring view.
