Top tips for hiring a car in Noosa Heads

  • Hire a car in Noosa Heads to explore the coastline at your own pace. The 620 Route bus is the only public transport through Noosa Heads and travels directly along Sunshine Beach Rd and Noosa Pde, meaning accommodation in the south near Leslie Dr is poorly connected. It’s possible to drive to the entrance of Noosa National Park from the centre of the city in only 5min, while the trip by bus takes roughly 30min and drops you over 1 km away. A hire car also opens up the possibility of visiting Tewantin National Park, which otherwise requires a transfer of buses in Tewantin.
  • The hire offices for companies, including Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty, can be found across from the baggage claim area at Sunshine Coast Airport (MCY). Hire cars are located directly outside the terminal, across the pickup lane, and can be reached with a short walk of less than 5min. Noosa Heads is more than 27 km from Sunshine Coast Airport, so hiring a car will save you from a costly taxi fare (approximately A$ 90) or shuttle bus (approximately A$ 35).
  • As Noosa Heads is surrounded by beaches and lagoons, pedestrian traffic is busy in car parks and coastal streets. Be wary to drive slowly and provide additional passing space as pedestrians are often carrying surfboards and other bulky items. If you are heading off road and going beach driving during your trip, reduce tyre pressure to roughly 18–20 psi and follow the tracks made by previous vehicles.
  • Thanks to not having a large business district, Noosa Heads does not experience a rush of traffic at any part of the day. Congestion stays consistent on the shopping areas of Sunshine Beach Rd and Hastings St, with cars moving slowly around pedestrians.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Noosa Heads for $33 or less
  • Book your car hire in Noosa Heads at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Noosa Heads are around 130% more expensive than airport locations on average

  • Lions Park Car Park has free 4h spots between 08:00 and 17:00, while metered parking is available along thoroughfares but spaces can be hard to find. Bay Village on Noosa Pde is great for longer visits with a flat daily rate of about A$ 40.
