Noosa has been named the 10th World Surfing Reserve, recognising decades of best practice in coastal management and protection that have resulted in Noosa’s international reputation as one of surfing’s natural wonders.
Noosa is only the third Australian World Surfing Reserve, following in the footsteps of Sydney’s Manly Beach (2012) and the southern Gold Coast (2016).
Noosa National Surfing Reserve chairperson Phil Jarratt said Noosa’s submission recognised the generations of responsible management, thanks to the people who put the first protective layers in place almost 60 years ago.
The status follows a two-year campaign by local surfers since the dedication of the Noosa National Surfing Reserve in March 2015.
It identifies, designates and preserves outstanding surfing environments around the world by recognising and protecting their key environmental, cultural, economic and community attributes.
Now the Noosa surf community has the responsibility of helping to continue that protection of Noosa’s surf beaches into future generations.
