Teewah Village is a small secluded community on Noosa’s stunning North Shore.
Nestled between pristine ocean and Cooloola National Park section of the Great Sandy Region and yet Teewah is only minutes from cosmopolitan Noosa.
Time has stood still for over 40 years in Teewah village with sandy tracks, no street lights, power lines or crowds to be seen. Only the sound of the ocean rolling in, the birds and wildlife in the surrounding national park. There are many of the original Teewah Beach Houses still standing, while some have been improved over time to produce some beautiful modern Beach Houses but still in keeping with a secluded beach destination.
Teewah has always been a special place to get away for families and fishermen alike, with a variety of activities and things to see and do for all.
The Great Sandy National Park ( also known as Cooloola National Park) incorporates and preserves the largest tract of natural land in Queenslands southern coast and the largest intact sand dune system in the world (around Teewah beach). The National Park is a vast wilderness area covering 54,000 hectares, from Lake Cootharaba north up to Rainbow Beach. There are glorious beaches, sparkling lakes, wildflowers, mangrove lined waterways, forests, heath land and the peaceful Noosa River
