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.

Our activities included walks in the national park and a surfing lesson. The surf schools guarantee you'll stand on the board during your first lesson - basically because the instructors will push you onto a wave so all you need to worry about is standing up. This didn't diminsh the thrill for me at all, when I managed to stand for ten seconds!

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 chicks.

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.
