In May every year, a band of intrepid swimmers takes part in one of the richest ocean swims in Australia – the Noosa Blue Water swim. This is either 2km, 1km or 500m of open ocean swimming at its best – clear, clean, calm water and perfect temperature -not too hot not too cold in the Noosa weather. Many of these swimmers come back to Noosa, Australia year after year for this event.
There is something special about the Noosa swim. Maybe it is the walk through the National Park to reach Tea Tree Bay, Noosa Queensland the starting off point. Maybe it is looking back along the headland and admiring the beautiful scenery along Noosa Heads. Maybe it is the finishing point at Main Beach, Noosa – one of the finest beaches on the Sunshine Coast or maybe it is just the friendly group of people who take part.
The Noosa Blue Water Swim forms part of the Noosa May Fiesta – a month of festivals and events in and around Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. Other events include the Global Food Festival at Noosaville, the Eumundi Food Festival Long Table dinner at Eumundi and Celebration of Australian Food and Wine, Noosa Style held at Noosa. Pick up a Sunshine Coast Map to find the location of each Noosa event or log onto the Noosa Council website for more information and free on-line Noosa maps.
