Noosa

"Noosa is located 151km north of Brisbane on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast."

The classy and sophisticated resort village overlooking Laguna Bay attracts the high class to the hippie, seeking out the beautiful shores, magnificent views, restaurant extravaganza and designer shopping.

Hastings Street is the epitome of designer and boutique shopping. All sorts of fabulous designer label clothing and shoe stores line the street. This street is always bursting with activity with shops galore, cafes, bars and restaurants galore and people galore.

At the end of Hastings St is Sandy Cove and access to Main Beach. Sandy Cove is a calm beach overlooking the river mouth where it adjoins Laguna Bay. Boats and jet skis ride up and down the river and the break off the point attracts local and visiting surfers.

Main Beach is just around the point and can be accessed from Sandy cove via footpath or from town. The popular swim beach offers beautiful views of the bay and headlands. The beach is very picturesque and a favoured hang out.

Eastern beaches include Sunshine Beach and Castaways Beach. Sunshine Beach stretches for miles and is a popular surf beach due to the decent waves and swell. A lifeguard station is located here.

Castaways Beach attracts all the kite surfers. This beach is much quieter and unpatrolled. Dogs are permitted here in the dog exercise area.

Laguna Lookout on Viewland Drive in the national park offers stunning views of the city and its waterways. The lookout is near the car park and only a short walk.

For the water lovers keen to enjoy the local waterways to the full extent, houseboats are available for hire at Tewantin, just north of town. Cruise the river in luxury on a 6, 8 or 10 berth boat. What a way to see the sights. The boats are moored at Memorial Park Jetty on Diyan St, Tewantin.

The Noosa area has several caravan parks for the campers and plenty of stylish resorts and apartments for those wanting to indulge in the flamboyant lifestyle so apparent in this city.
