The park has one of the few remaining emu populations in coastal Queensland and is a refuge for rare animals, including the Cooloola acid frog and ground parrot. Boat tours and whale watching are available. Rent canoes, kayaks and small powerboats from Boreen Point and from Elanda Point for travel on the Noosa River. Fishing is allowed at Teewah Beach, the Noosa River and Kin Kin Creek, with lures recommended over live bait. Bass season is closed from June 1 to August 31.
