Oh beautiful Noosa how we adore you! If you live in Australia there’s a good chance you’ve visited this incredible little coastal holiday destination. Often considered the ‘quieter’ and more ‘low-key’ version of the Gold Coast, beautiful Noosa and it’s surroundings live up to all it’s praise! Geographically located in South East Queensland, about an hour and a half from North from Brisbane, this easily accessible holiday town is buzzing with good vibes.
With the borders now open and Noosa opening it’s doors once again to interstate travellers, the Noosa locals are welcoming the new life. It brings a great sense of positivity back to the area with so many of Noosa’s shops and restaurants being small businesses and such an integral part of the community. Many of you have made Noosa your annual holiday destination, escaping up North in Winter during the cooler months.

This picturesque little seaside destination manages to blend serenity with action! The weather and perfect temperatures all year round play a big draw card in making this place so attractive and there’s also plenty of options depending on your budget. If you love nature there’s plenty of scenic natural surroundings including walks around the gorgeous Alexandra headland and days spent at the beach. If you head North you can also enjoy 4wd beach driving at Rainbow Bay and Double Island point. You can also head inland and soak up the beauty and laid back setting of Eumundi which lies just West of Noosa. If you have kids or you’re an animal lover, spend a day at the iconic Australia Zoo.
It’s the perfect destination to encourage you to go at your own pace. If you’ve come to slow down, enjoy a day at the beach or amongst nature. The Noosa Coastal walk that weaves through the National park is so beautiful.
