One place but lots of options Apr 29, 2013
A lovely town with a steep hill! There are basically two divisions to this town – backpackers and holidaymakers. One end of the town has cheaper food options– Taco Boys, Subway, The Coffee Club and a bar serving huge meals very cheaply. The opposite side has boutique shops and nice restaurants with live music and other forms of entertainment. This is the end by Main Beach and the entrance to Noosa National Park, as well as the start of many walking trails. I embarked on a brisk walk through the National Park out to a spot called Dolphin Point and then returned along the coastal trail. Although leisurely, the inclines were tiring. Make sure to set off early enough in the evening to catch the sea breeze but leaving enough time to return in daylight. My advice for Noosa is to book accommodation with a courtesy bus into town or if possible book accommodation near the beach. Nomads seems to be the nearest hostel but of course it is the other side of the hill.

Noosa is the cheapest place to hop on a bus to the Australia Zoo but one of the more expensive places heading South to learn to surf. The advice that I was given for surfing is to try it out at Agnes Water, 1770. An independent surfer has since told me that the surf lessons are not as good as in Noosa though. Quality or cost?

This stop is up there with Airlie Beach on my recommendation list.
