Start with a walk and coffee along Noosa River. The kids can play in the pirate park while you kick back, or get a fast pace going and work off those Christmas calories. Once your legs are stretched, you can sit back and watch the boats as they come in of the afternoon. The pelicans will be close by waiting to flock and pick up some fish scraps!

Go from watching the boats to cruising on one with a sunset ferry cruise. You can even take your own drinks to enjoy as you watch the sun descend, before being dropped at Rickys jetty.
