Nature in abundance
Just five minutes before this picture was taken, Jason and I had been watching the whales pass offshore, one of them flaying its flukes with gay abandon at regular intervals.
Others had noticed and were watching from various viewpoints along the route.
Migrating from Hervey Bay on their way to the Antarctic for their annual krill fill, they have become a great advertisement for the anti-whale hunting lobby.
Couple this experience with the sublime sunset shown here and you can readily understand why Noosa still retains much of its magic.
Wonderful Location For A Holiday
"The Last Day Of Winter"
We were in Noosa for the last week of winter and on the last day went for a walk along the beachfront. As on previous days the sun shone, hundreds of people were on the beach and in the water. What a fabulous place to escape from the cold southern Australian winter.
"Jazz Festival At Noosa"
When travelling it is sometimes best to arrange your visit to coincide with a local festival. By sheer luck we were in town for the start of the Noosa Jazz Festival which had some great musicians such as James Morrison.
"National Forest and Beaches Everywhere"
Noosa is located on Queensland's Sunshine Coast approximately 1.5 hours drive from Brisbane. The area is one of astonishing beauty, many attractions including Steve Irwin's Australian Zoo less than an hour's drive.
We took a guided four wheel drive tour to Fraser Island which would be one of the best tours I have taken anywhere in the world. Make certain you visit the Eumundi Markets held on Wednesday's and Saturday, large and amusing, you will be sure to find something you want to buy.
Enjoy Noosa and the surrounding districts, fabulous country.
