Noosa Biosphere Reserve - A celebration of community and environment.

Noosa Trail Masterplan

Project Overview

A detailed action and implementation plan for a network of eight hinterland trails.

The project will deliver a Masterplan for the Noosa Trail Network – a network of eight hinterland trails passing through diverse areas within the Noosa Biosphere Reserve including national park, state forest, private property, council parks and road reserves.

The project aims to eliminate and prevent misuse of this important environmental asset whilst supporting and managing the sustainable use of the network and its surrounding areas.

The project will be led by Tourism Noosa who have partnered with Noosa and District Landcare and the Noosa Council’s Economic Development Department.

Stakeholder engagement has already commenced with bike clubs, commercial operators, QPWS, community groups and Noosa Council.

Intended outcomes

A key outcome of the project is the delivery of a detailed Masterplan that addresses trail enhancement, case studies, funding models/costs, infrastructure requirements, economics and sustainable jobs, erosions, revegetation and weeds, water, risk management plan, marking and education information.

Following the Masterplan, Noosa Council received a further $1.6 million federal funding to improve and create new links in the Noosa Trail Network.
