    Moving to Noosa - Sunshine Coast

     

    Noosa

    Noosa lies North of the Sunshine Coast around 150km from Brisbane CBD. It is split in to four distinct areas, Noosa Heads, Noosa Junction, Noosaville and Noosa North Shore.

     

    Noosa Heads 

    Moving to Noosa HeadsOnce you head down the hill from Noosa Junction you will be met with the ocean on one side and the river inlets on the other. In the middle you have Hastings Street with an abundance of boutique shops including some of the larger chains like Peter Alexander and with unparalleled dining in bustling cafes and elegant eateries with ocean views.  Noosa Heads is definitely a holiday destination although I would recommend not visiting on a public holiday when all hotel rooms are booked and car parking is impossible.

    Noosa Main Beach is found at the side of the Surf Club, you can hire sun shades, lounges, kayaks, paddle boards and much more. They even rent out lockers to store your valuables whilst you swim in the crystal blue waters. If you are lucky you may find yourself swimming with the dolphins who tend to swim in to the bay to have a look what's going on.

    Noosa Spit is at the opposite end of Hastings Street, here you will find lovely areas with BBQ facilities and picnic benches along with a dog friendly beach.

    Noosa North Shore

    Moving to Noosa North ShorePalm trees, beach camping, crystal blue waters, coloured sands, fishing, horse riding and 4WD beach driving, yes, welcome to paradise. Noosa North Shore can only be reached by car ferry which crosses the river at Tewantin. It is only a small chain ferry but keeps busy.

    Noosa North Shore gateway to the World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

    Unfortunately it is only Beach driving so you will require a 4x4, I did go across on the ferry in my Mazda but to be honest without a 4x4 you are not going to see a lot. If you have a suitable vehicle you can drive past Teewah, through the coloured sands, on to Double Island Point, Rainbow Beach then on to the vehicular ferry across to Fraser Island.
