Suburb Profile: Noosa Waters
Winner of the prestigious Premier Award for Excellence and Queensland's Best Waterfront Development in both 1996 and 1997, Noosa Waters offers an exquisite residential lifestyle with a strong community atmosphere.
Consisting of 928 lots over 45Ha with 471 residential lots fronting a man-made canal system which is connected to the beautiful Noosa River, Noosa Waters was developed over nine years beginning in 1991. It has a most sophisticated lock and weir system. Water is pumped in daily and gravitates back into Noosa River constantly resulting in high quality water utilised for swimming, boating, fishing and crabbing. The wide waterways are approximately 2.4m deep and a vessel under the height limit of 4.2m can gain entry under the bridges.
The lock system caters for boats up to 15m in length and 4m in width.
Access to Noosa Waters is only given to the waterfront property owners by way of a security sensor card.
Within this development there are 31 well-manicured parks, a recreational oval and croquet court offering children's play facilities, a place to relax, privacy and separation between residential sections.
Noosa Waters is centrally located within walking distance of thriving Noosaville with its river esplanade lined with restaurants, cafes and shops. It is also just 5 minutes from Hastings Street and 2 minutes to a neighbourhood shopping centre. It is the last of any waterfront development in Noosa and has already been highly sought after by locals, southerners and overseas residents.
Capital growth has exceeded all expectations with land opening prices tripling for dry allotments and waterfront blocks in some cases increasing by 600% over the previous ten years.
