Boreen Point is a rural locality in the Shire of Noosa, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Boreen Point had a population of 328 people. The town of Boreen is located within the locality beside the lake (26°17′04″S 152°59′36″E / 26.2844°S 152.9933°E / -26.2844; 152.9933 (Boreen)), but the town name is rarely used with Boreen Point being the name in common usage.


The name comes from an Aboriginal word from the tribes around Moreton Bay which refers to the pathway that led between two bora rings.

Boreen Point is home to the Apollonian Hotel, a historic inn that was moved from Gympie, Queensland and rebuilt in Boreen Point.


One of Boreen Point's major attractions is Lake Cootharaba, a very large, shallow lake that is recognised nationally for its fantastic weather for sailing and windsurfing. The lake leads from the Noosa River and also up to national parks.
