Welcome to Noosa, settled on the sprawling beachfront of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. This area is long and is not just one city, it is basically a conurbation turned into something bigger by the series of towns along the waterfront.
Noosa is a pretty city. Of course, the location tells you that with beautiful national park on one side and sprawling beaches on the other. What is more important is the town itself.
The architecture is amazing and perfect for the holiday town it has become. Nothing threatens you, think mega skyscrapers and congested highways! It is built in a nice way to allure the eyes and make you think to yourself that this is a pretty town.
All the shops are calm but inviting. The worst thing I saw in the streets were some garbage bins, oh the horror! People put their trash in a bin! The bins were closed! The agony!
We stayed in a neighbouring suburb called Noosaville. This meant walking. I think I walked more than usual, but it was worth it to see the town and experience the air of the place. Did anyone work here? It was certainly a vacation kind of place.
One day, we sat on the main beach of Noosa and looked north across the coastline. Here you could see that there was no protruding development or towers. It was just natural beauty. The pristine nature made me think that to travel Australia would be a good idea. A place built on nature with a few people scattered across it. Go have a look at our population distribution and think of that in the forest alone.
It was a nice place to relax and I could see why so many people had travelled here to absorb that fact. There were also extra people as a recent triathlon had taken the town by storm. The streets were filled with people and bikes but the beach was filled with just relaxers.
I could sit here for hours and write in detail about how many restaurants there are and how few towers exist. However, I think this is just a cool little place to pop on your travelling map.
