Situated at the northern tip of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Noosa Shire covers an area of 871km2 and is home to more than 54,000 people.
Noosa Shire Council was re-established as a local government on January 1, 2014. It followed a hard-fought community campaign over several years to restore its shire following the amalgamation of three sunshine coast councils in 2008.
Noosa Shire has an economy that is diversifying beyond a thriving tourism industry. It is recognised as a UNESCO Biosphere and has a proud history of preserving its natural environment. Thirty five percent of the Shire is protected as either national park, reserve or conservation area.
