Noosa, on the Sunshine Coast, is only the third Australian surf destination to be awarded this prestigious honour, following in the footsteps of Sydney’s Manly Beach (2012) and the southern Gold Coast (2016).
Decades of best practice in coastal management and protection have resulted in Noosa’s international reputation as one of surfing’s natural wonders, with Noosa’s stunning five-kilometre stretch of coast incorporating some of the best point break waves in the world.
The dedication ceremony saw some of Australia’s biggest names in surfing, including seven-time World Championship winner and current chair of Surfing Australia, Layne Beachley in attendance.
GemLife prides itself on selecting premium, world-class destinations for all resorts with both GemLife Pacific Paradise and GemLife Maroochy Quays located in the idyllic Sunshine Coast, less than an hour’s drive from this stunning, pristine beach.
GemLife Pacific Paradise is surrounded by natural bushland and stunning beaches, yet located nearby to the thriving precinct of Maroochydore’s CBD and is only a 40-minute drive away from Noosa.
