About Us

Here we meet Mr Rainer Mueckenberger, our beloved and renowned owner and operator of Noosa Nudist Retreat. Rainer is a passionate, outgoing and caring business manager who has been an avid nudist and nature lover since he was 16 years of age, growing up in his native land of Germany. This passion for ‘strutting his stuff’ in the nude all started when he came down with a bladder infection in Croatia, after swimming in the then-popular ‘stretch towel Bermuda shorts’, which clung wet to the body for hours after swimming. Rainer’s doctor suggested that he ditch the wet shorts that were likely the cause of his infections and frequent the nudist beaches instead! Rainer never looked back stating, “besides the health benefits, I loved the friendliness of the people and was amazed at how clean the nude beaches were! The people really cared about nature and being a part of it, instead of trashing it.”

As a 20 year old who loved to cook and travel, Rainer immigrated to Australia as a qualified chef and waiter and went on to cook, own and manage eight successful restaurants during his career. It was when he moved to the Sunshine Coast to raise his daughter that he was delighted to find the stunning ‘unofficial’ nude beach at A-bay in Noosa. As the visionary entrepreneur that Rainer had become, he thought it would be wonderful for the nudist and naturists that frequented the beach, to have somewhere else to go to be free and naked! With his passions for cooking, health, well-being and naturism, he made this dream a reality and turned his tropical hinterland home into the welcoming and fun Noosa Nudist Retreat we all know and love today. Rainer loves to entertain and cook for his guests, delivering excellent customer service and a unique experience to like-minded nature lovers such as himself every day. As Rainer says, “suggestions are always welcome and we aim to please!”
