Carly's family just bought an apartment in Noosa and I was quite happy to volunteer to accompany her there for a week. Noosa is definately a great place to do absolutely nothing, which was our basic objective for the week.
We managed to casually stroll down
Hastings Street a number of times, always ending at Massimo's for a
gelati. Given that it's the only main street in Noosa Heads, most of
the shops on Hastings St are ridiculously expensive. We made sure to
check our email and go to the supermarket in Noosa Junction. We
splurged instead on a massage at the beauty centre attached to the
South Pacific Resort.
While we also watched lots of TV and DVDs, Carly and I are incapable of being still for long.
I'm generally not much of a beach person, but I could appreciate how
the beaches here with their deep blue water. It was quite entertaining
just sitting on the beach and watching all the surfies do their tricks
on the waves (some successful, others not so much). Of course, there
are always a few guys hanging around, carefully surveying the surfie
Our early Saturday morning trip to the huge Eumundi market was
also great. There were loads of local arts and crafts, music
performances and yummy food stalls. We both bought some gorgeous
plaques with artistic photos on them.
On Saturday night, we managed to find the only bar/restaurant with people under 30 inside (I guess most backpackers just hang out at their hostel). Zachary's Gourmet Pizza Bar (30 Hastings Street) has yummy pizzas and great cocktails, which we made the most of during their happy hour.
