Council is working with the community to develop a landscape plan for Lake Weyba Foreshore Park. Lake Weyba is a large shallow lake mostly fringed by natural landscapes. The foreshore currently provides the community with access to the lake for a variety of recreational purposes.

The Lake Weyba project locality plan[2423KB] provides an overview of the area.

Project scope

The landscape plan will inform opportunities for improvements and provide a vision for the future of the foreshore park.  The landscape plan will aim to enhance the site’s environmental values, recreational opportunities, and access to open space, the lake, and recreation trails.

Project update

Council has engaged the community to help shape Lake Weyba foreshores future to meet the growing recreational needs of the community.

Community feedback collated through survey responses, letters and emails to the project team have been reviewed and considered in the development of a draft landscape plan.

View the Draft Lake Weyba Foreshore Landscape Plan. Comments received that relate specifically to the lake will be forwarded to Noosa Council and included as feedback in the development of the Noosa River Plan.

Where to from here

The Lake Weyba Foreshore Landscape Plan presents a vision for the area with a number of key outcomes that can be delivered through a staged implementation process over a number of years subject to available funding.

Council will actively seek grant funding from various sources to assist in delivering the plan.

Updates on the implementation of the plan will be made available on council's website.

Overview

Lake Weyba is a shallow tidal lake surrounded by a variety of vegetation communities that includes mangroves, saltpans and open forest. The shorelines are dominated by melaleuca wetlands. The lake adjoins sections of the Noosa National Park, residential areas, open space and retained native vegetation. With the variety of natural values Lake Weyba is recognised as a nationally important wetland.

The lake is used mostly by shallow-draft boats such as catamarans, kayaks, canoes, kite surfers, paddle boards and small tinnies. The foreshore has limited facilities with no formal boat accesses to the lake. An existing natural trail meanders along the foreshore and is used by riders and walkers.
