Welcome to the Noosa Biosphere Reserve
The Noosa Biosphere Reserve is a celebration of community and environment. Since 2007, the Noosa Shire has held UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status. It recognises the ongoing efforts of the Noosa community to manage the region’s land, waters and wildlife sustainably, in balance with its urban population and visitors from across the globe. Together, with more than 700 biosphere reserves around the world, we are working towards the global sustainability goals of the Man and the Biosphere Program and Lima Action Plan.
