TEWANTIN

Tewantin is the most northern tip of the Sunshine Coast. The town has some unique qualities that separate this community from the more plastic elements of the ‘coast’ towns, including Noosa.

Tewantin is a suburb in Noosa. It was the original settlement in the Noosa region and is one of its three major centres today.

Tewantin is a nice small and proud community and this attribute is on display by one and all. The town has a down to earth class.

The name Tewantin is an anglicized version of the Aboriginal name for the area. Tewantin was originally a timber town and in 1869 Tewantin was also the river port for the Noosa area. In 1871 Clarendon Stuart surveyed a town site for the Tewantin settlement. Tewantin was then a thriving small town with a reliance on the gold, fishing and timber industries.

The Tewantin Hotel has held onto the heritage of the community.

The Tewantin War Memorial has good profile in the town.

The Tewantin Churches are of the modern era.

When visiting Tewantin be sure to visit the lookout just some ten minutes from the cbd.

This place is nice and distinct from Noosa has stay appeal. If seeking the relax button stay a week. Other than that allow a day or two.
