Where is it?
Above: Lee bouldering in Noosa National Park
As far as I'm aware, there are no real, established routes (bolting is not permitted, and the rock is iffy anyway), but there are plenty of hard, overhung boulder problems. You could top rope if you really wanted to I suppose. It's also a great place to go due to the excellent swimming and snorkelling available a stones throw from the crag.
North Sunshine Beach
These areas are two successive headlands which lie on the other (southern) side of Noosa National Park. They are marked on all the decent road maps, so are easy to find. You wouldn't want to walk around the entire headland to get to them, so drive to the suburb of Sunshine Beach, park as far north on the beachfront as possible, and walk along the beach up north.
More than 20 routes were established
here in the early 90s. This is all the information I have been able to gather. More would be appreciated.
