Overview
The Shire of Noosa is a local government area about 130 kilometres north of Brisbane in the Sunshine Coast region of South East Queensland, Australia.

Noosa Heads is situated at the northern end of Alexandria Bay, forming the north eastern most tip of the Noosa National Park.

Noosa’s sub-tropical climate is tempered by the ocean so it is never blazingly hot and rarely cold enough to demand more than a cardigan.

The temperatures are mid to hot ranging from 17 to 28 degree celsius in the height of summer and 7 to 22 degrees celsius in winter.

The Noosa region has beautiful beaches, lush green hinterland, a stunning national park, pristine rivers and a cosmopolitan lifestyle. With an inspiring dining scene and a year-round warm and sunny climate Noosa is a lovely place to work and live.
