Name a Noosa Trail and win a weekend away!
  • Wednesday 06 May 2009

The Noosa Trail Network is being extended; two new tracks will come online later this year—so get your creative juices flowing and submit your trail name entries to the Name a Noosa Trail competition.

Council needs to name:

—the Pomona to Cooroy track—which flows from the Noosa Showgrounds at Pomona through Yurol State Forest to Cooroy

—the Pomona to Lake MacDonald track—which runs from the Noosa Showgrounds at Pomona under the railway (twice) across Yurol Forest Drive to the picturesque Lake Macdonald.

Senior Planning Officer, Anne Warmbrunn, said that the Name a Noosa Trail competition is a great way to get some innovative names for the new trails and invites the community to get involved.

“Noosa Trail Network is a magnificent resource for residents and visitors to the region—so it’s only fitting that we ask the community to name the new tracks,” Ms Warmbrunn explained.

“Be inspired by the environment or the history of the region and come up with a name that you think best represents each new track.

“Send in your ideas for a name for each track and you could win two nights accommodation at either the Kin Kin Haven Bed and Breakfast in Kin Kin, or the Inn the Foothills Bed and Breakfast in Pomona.

“Both prizes have been generously donated by each bed and breakfast,” Ms Warmbrunn said.

Entering is easy—simply send your suggested trail name and the track you are naming with your name, address, phone number to

A winner will be selected for each track and competition closes Wednesday, 27 May 2009.

Winners will be contacted by phone and recognised at a presentation at the Noosa Festival of Water, Sunday 7 June 2009.

The Noosa Trail Network is a series of bushland tracks and trails linking Pomona, Kin Kin, Cooran and Lake Macdonald with a circuit around Cudgerie estate. The Noosa Trail Network enables mountain bike riders, horse riders and bush walkers to enjoy the spectacular Noosa hinterland on trails that are well signposted, with picnic shelters, water tanks, interpretative signs and scenic lookouts.
