Can somebody bring me up to date? It's years since I've been up there and I can't remember the beach access points/cuttings. From memory there were two just over the ferry from Tewantin and I might be imagining this but could you also go to the southern end of the beach and head into town directly? I know there is the river but maybe at low tide? Or am I getting mixed up with somewhere else in my old age?

Hi Steve,

Mate there are now only 2 cuttings, use the southern one (the old cutting 1) if you want to head south towards the Noosa river mouth, and the old cutting 3 if you're heading North. Vehicles are now banned on the beach between first and third cuttings. The old 2nd cutting has been closed off.

There is no access to town (Noosa) except via the barge.

Note also that permits are now required to drive on the beach.

When you're there, take notice of the speed limits (80 on the beach, 50 around Teewah township) as the coppers regularly set up speed cameras there.

Hope this helps..

Greg..

thanks Greg - what's the easiest way to get around to the N side of Double Island Pt? Freshwater track?

No, I'd be going over the track just south of the point itself. I think it's called the Leisha Track. It's been done up fairly well with a lot of sleepers laid and is reasonably easy these days.
I'd expect you'd have your tyre pressures lowered anyway so you'd have no trouble.
The Freshwater track can be pretty rough and sloppy, especially after some rain.

Cheers,

Greg..

As Greg said but also: There is a vehicle and camping permit issuing office just before the Tewantin ferry on the left or you can purchase and print both off the internet. If intending to travel through to Rainbow Beach from Double Island Point you need to establish the pass-ability of Mudlo Rocks which have claimed many a 4WD. You can ring the Rainbow Beach Police Station or check online at Mudlo Rocks Beach Report.

Cheers John

thanks for that John - no I won't be bothering with Rainbow and certainly not Mudlo as I was at Inskip/Rainbow a few years back. Just wanted to get over the N side of the point.
