It has almost been two years since Joanne and Jason acquired the management rights of Coco Bay Resort. Upon reflection, they have developed a few favourite places and things to do around Noosa. In honour of their 2 year anniversary, Jo and Jason share their list of favourites with us.

“These are places and activities that we go back to time and time again.

“In full disclosure, we receive no financial incentives for those businesses mentioned. Rather, these are our personal recommendations that we want to share with guests to give them ideas and inspiration for next time you visit.” Jo Carter, Manager

We hope this list of our favourite things in Noosa inspires you to come and enjoy Noosa and experience our backyard as a local would.

If some of these are new to you, maybe you can give them a try on your next holiday in Noosa.

“We look forward to adding to our list of favourites over the next two years!”
