Boutiquey Noosa

After the excitement of Fraser Island, I decided to use my last week from part 1 of my Australia trip to just chill out in Noosa and organise the next phases of my trip Down Under. Noosa is a "nice" beach resort about 1.5 hours outside of Brisbane and as a result it is very popular with locals, particularly now during Easter week. The town has multiple centres including Noosa Heads, Noosa Junction, Noosaville, Sunshine Beach and Tewantin with 100's of roundabouts in between so its all pretty confusing. Each centre has its own beach area and in addition there is a small national park between Sunshine Beach and Noosa Heads with an additional 3 beaches that can only be reached on foot.

Most of the towns have been built during the last 30 years or so and it is all very "boutiquey" with lots of lunchrooms, coffee bars and boutiques. Fortunately, most of the buildings are low-rise and there are plenty of parks and trees around so it is all quite nice. The quality of the beaches are excellent so it is really quite a pleasant place to stay. You can also buy some nice apartments around here if you are interested but it helps if you have A$ 1Million available or so for a basic one.

I eventually decided to hang out here the full week and avoid busy Brisbane as I can get a shuttle to Brisbane Airport directly from here. Most of my days were spent on the different village beaches although in between I did manage to head to Eumundi Market with Katie from England and hike around the National Park with Tanya from Guatemala. This walk was quite nice as the views were excellent and I finally got the opporunity to see a Koala bear in the wild.

In between, I have been preparing my trip next week to Fiji and also organising the following phases of my trip. After two weeks in Fiji, I will come back to Australia and spend May and June making my way down to Melbourne where I hope to sell my car before flying north to Thailand for the Asian part of my trip. More news soon from a new country !
