…from the seaside to the vistas
Get ready to see the Noosa hinterland in a beautifully different way, from atop breathtaking vistas and throughout the quaint countryside roads. The Noosa Strade Bianche Grand Fondo and Vintage Bicycle Festival is a competition and bike show, with events on both 8 and 9 August.
The 133 km loop has climbs and descents full of challenges such as inclines and gravel roads. There’s also the 89 km Medio Fondo for those looking for a slightly less strenuous challenge, and both of these depart from Noosa Marina at 7am Sunday. For those with steel framed road bikes, the 33km Piccolo Fondo held at 7am Saturday provides an introduction to some of the longer routes. On the routes, participants can stop for coffee, a brew or even a pastry at one of the many picturesque small town areas filled with country cafes and local charm.
Also on Saturday, participants can show off their vintage bikes at the Vintage Bicycle Show and Swap Meet from 11am to 3pm at the Noosa Marina. Admission fees are only charged for those in the contest, so feel free to drop by and soak up some sun by the Noosa River, or spend the afternoon having lunch at the marina.
If you’re looking for a place to stay that is serene but close to the action, Noosa Quays is a popular Noosa resort with blissful surroundings located just ten minutes’ drive from the Noosa Marina. Our oversized balconies look directly over the stunning waters of Noosa River, and the resort was recently renovated.
