Weyba Downs

Weyba Downs is a rural/residential locality 10 km south of Noosa. It is immediately south and west of Lake Weyba, the southern-most of three lakes – Cootharaba, Cooribah and Weyba. The first two are connected by the Noosa River, and Cooribah is connected to Weyba by the Weyba Creek. There is evidence that the creek was once an extension of the Noosa River, which entered the ocean from Lake Weyba. 'Weyba' is thought to be derived from an Aboriginal expression denoting the stingray or, less probably, the flying squirrel.
