Noosa Fairy Rock Pools
If you can drag yourself away for Atlantis Marcoola for a bit why not take a drive up to Noosa & visit the Fairy Rock Pools.
Located just a short walk away in the Noosa National Park. It is around a 30-40 minute walk from the Little Cove Car Park and around an hour
from the Sunshine beach side along unpaved but fairly flat and well-maintained trails. There are rocks to be negotiated at the end in order to
access the swimming holes.
The Fairy Pools are two natural tidal pools lying low between the basalt rocks just west of the tip of the headland at the eastern end of
Granite Bay, with many visitors unable to find them.
The smaller pool (to the west) is only separated from the ocean at low tide but the larger one may still be usable at high tide when the swell
is smaller and fewer waves crash over the rocks to refill the pool. It is worth bringing goggles or a snorkel and mask since at low tide, when
the pools are cut off and there is less turbulence, you will be able to see several kinds of coral and sponges making for a beautiful display growing
on the rocks.\
There is also a pretty cobblestone beach to the west of the pools which is excellent snorkelling and diving in the area and the national park has some
lovely bushwalking trails. All of the bays around the headland to the west are world-class surf breaks.
