Boreen Point is a locality north of Tewantin on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. It is within the local government area of Shire of Noosa (between 2008 and 2013 it was within Sunshine Coast Region). At the 2011 Australian Census Boreen Point recorded a population of 264. The town of Boreen is located within the locality beside the lake, but the town name is rarely used with Boreen Point being the name in common usage.
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.
The Shire of Noosa operates a mobile library service on a weekly schedule in Orchard Avenue.
