I can't believe I have lived on the coast for 30 years and this is the first time I have been on the Noosa River Ferry. What a fantastic day out and such an easy way to access Hasting Street. $25 for a day pass and you can stop at several different locations. The ferryman is lovely and enjoys the... More

On a recent visit to Noosa, we hopped on the Noosa Ferry and learned all about the happenings around Noosa and the various highlights of the shoreline by the very informative skipper and host. He was a friendly guy and entertained us along the way. There is seating inside or on the top deck of the ferry. We picked the... More

We used the ferry to go to The Boat House for cocktails and dinner. The ferry driver was such fun, played great music and had an excellent commentary. We found out that there is a BYO drinks and nibbles cruise for only $12 which we will definitely do next time we are in Noosa.

The skippers really know their stuff and give an entertaining commentary as the world floats by. There’s a few stops where you can get off between Noosa Heads and Tewantin before re-joining and the restaurants/cafes at the Tewantin Marina are a great spot to wait for the return trip after sightseeing the town.

We bought a day pass for this activity and were had a wonderful day. First we took the full circle from the Noosa Heads Township to Tewantin Marina and back. On the second round we hopped off at Noosa Sound Q Place and walked up to Tewantin Marina (approximately 7 km) just in time for the last cruise back. Totally... More

We have used the hop-on-hop-off service to avoid the Hastings Street parking fiasco, and really enjoy this mode of commute. The river views are so interesting, and the skipper provides an informative commentary. We have also enjoyed the sunset cruise -so much so that we boarded and disembarked at Tewantin where the vessel is moored overnight in order to enjoy... More

This private ferry service runs between Tewantin and Noosa, with five stops in between. As a tourist, it is probably best to get the all day pass, which means you can get off and on at the different stops and explore. If you choose to stay on board, the round trip takes one and a half hours. This gives you... More
