History and Culture

The name Noosa came from the Aboriginal word meaning “shadows” or “shade” – this is most likely a reference to the tall forests in the area that offer shade from the sun. The Gubbi Gubbi tribe had been visiting the Noosa area for 40,000 years before Europeans first arrived in the 1800s. In 1879 the Noosa Headland was declared a Town Reserve, then in 1930 it was gazetted as a National Park – meaning that to this day Noosa National Park has remained untouched. It is now one of Noosa’s most important natural assets, which is regularly explored by locals and tourists. Noosa Heads has a strong culture of nature and sun lovers, with the famous Hastings Street providing a vibrant scene for renowned cafes, fine dining and boutique shopping.
