Noosa set to take a walk on the wild side

BURSTS of bush colour in Noosa can only mean one thing – it is Spring Wildflower Festival time.

And the Friends of Lake Weyba are keen to share this annual display of natural magic with locals and visitors alike on free guided walks.

For a bird’s eye view, scale the Marcus High Dunes. Take in the vista of the pristine waters of Lake Weyba, the wallum heath lands and stunning coastline.

FoLW’s Christine Tainsh said the Lake Weyba wallum heathland is an ecosystem unrivalled for its rich biodiversity.

“The local community and visitors to the Noosa area are privileged that the catchment area of Lake Weyba still retains expanses of natural and unique coastal wallum heath, despite a long history of pressure from developers and urbanisation,” she said.

“The area is part of the Maroochy Noosa Wallum Corridor, is National Estate Listed and is of international, national, regional and local significance.
