Thinking of a trip to racv noosa resort with our 3 small children (1, 3 & 4)
Has anyone stayed here? Walking distance to beach, cafés?
Will it be too cold in July? We're from hilly south- 4 deg here today so doesn't have to be roasting hot but would be nice to visit beach. I checked the weather forecast and there's a bit of rain, cloudy days forecast for this month but not sure whether that's intermittent at this time if year and if it's still worth a visit?
Will we need to hire a car?
If no car hire any recommendations from getting from sun coast airport to resort??
Any tips on what to do with small children? Good family friendly cafés? I found underwater world on google, worth the trip?
It's very expensive for us so wanting some first hand experiences/ opinions please
Thanks so much

Noosa information please
Went to a wedding there last year. It is a lovely spot but definitely not walking distance to the main beach or the Hastings street strip. Room service is expensive as are on site meals. But as all apartments have a fully stocked kitchen you can manage by doing your own.
Pool area is lovely and there is a little playground there as well.
You'd be better off finding a place in Mooloolaba as its on the beach, cafes close, walk to underwater world.

It's definitely not a walk to the beach. If you want Noosa it's best to stay in Hasting St but you will pay for it - very pricey and school holidays book out fast. July is not very warm but it is quieter. You might be lucky and get a 25 degree day and winter is generally beautiful (although we've just had probably the wettest June on record). But this week temp minimums are well into single digits and it isn't uncommon to get 5 degrees in the early morning... Still plenty of Southern tourists happy to swim 😊
Also other than the beach Noosa lacks activities for young children. Mooloolaba is cheaper accom and you can walk to underwater world (much like Melbourne aquarium, run by same company). Australia Zoo is also worth the trip (need at least one full day, maybe 2), but you will need a car (some tour companies may run buses etc from mooloolaba during school holidays). It's about 30 mins or so from mooloolaba (would be an hour from Noosa).
You could always do a day trip to Noosa on a sunny day if you have a car. about 30 min drive from Mooloolaba.
Hope this helps!

We prefer Noosaville to Noosa. It's more family friendly and cheaper. If you went to Caloundra or Mooloolaba/Maroochydore area you could get away with out needing a car the whole time.
We are from South of Brisbane and are currently on Holidays in Caloundra. We have pretty much walked everywhere except to the Ginger factory today and the Zoo on Monday. There is a transit centre here with free shuttle buses to Australia Zoo. Heaps to do. Our boys went swimming on Tuesday but it has been a bit cool for us since then ( Cool for us SE Qlder's is 22😂)

We have just spend 5 days near Noosa. We stayed at Tewantin and caught the ferry down the river and walked up and down Hastings St and went to the beach.
I'm not sure about the airport as we drove there from Brisbane. I didn't think it was warm enough to swim, but the kids went in and there were plenty of people swimming at Noosa beach. It was about 22 degrees the day we were there.
