A great way to extend your walk along the esplanade foreshore, if you are open to some fun and water.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walkers up for a challenge, mountain bikers and horse riders – you are likely to get wet feet!.

HIGHLIGHTS
This local’s favourite and popular horse trail starts from the southern end of the esplanade. It is essentially bushwacking along the lakeside, and sometimes in it. Bring bugspray and be prepared to wade around a bit, but also to enjoy a spectacular setting, any time of day!

It’s hard to believe you are just kilometres away from the tourist crowds of Noosa.

Lake Weyba is part of the Noosa Biosphere Reserve, the first in Queensland, and covers approximately 150,000 hectares of freshwater, estuarine and terrestrial environments.
The lake has several tributaries including Weyba, Keyser, Eenie Hosman and Murdering Creeks.

Lake Weyba, like the other lakes in the Noosa Catchment, are an important feature as natural lakes are rare in Queensland.

AFTERWARDS
While in this area you can follow other trails that lead away from the lake through coastal bushland and saltpans. Or you might simply prefer to call it a day and head home to dry off!

HOW TO GET THERE
To the starting point: Head north on the Sunshine Motorway and follow the signs to Noosa. At the roundabout after the Peregian Springs/Murdering Creek Road roundabout, turn right at the Eumarella Road exit.

Heading south from Noosa and nearby suburbs, take Walter Hay Drive off Eenie Creek Road. At the third roundabout (the one that leads into Emu Mountain Road), take the Eumarella Road exit on your left.

Follow this road for about 2 km until you reach Lake Weyba Drive right in front of the lake. The trail starting at the southern of the Lake Weyba Drive.

To the end point: The end point is the same as the starting point.
