40-mile Beach: A pristine stretch of white sand with stunning headland views all the way from Noosa to Double Island Point

Red Canyon: Here, red and yellow sands form a unique canyon in the sand dunes where you will enjoy magnificent views over Teewah Beach – a breathtaking beautiful landscape.

Lighthouse: Double Island Point Lighthouse offers breathtaking 360-degree views across the Pacific Ocean and scenic surrounds of the Great Sandy National Park. This location often spots pods of dolphins, turtles, sharks, manta rays and Humpback Whales (June-October).
