Noosa, Noosa Heads, Noosa Waters (on the Sunshine Coast)
Town set within lush tropical vegetation and along the Pacific Ocean.
Take the walk through the National Park to reach less crowded beaches, stroll through the main street where top boutiques and eating establishments are found, or why not relax on your balcony overlooking the ocean.
This is where the rich and famous mingle with the unknown.
The Australian Zoo
Ah, don't we just love Steve Irwin. Not since Crocodile Dundee has the land downunder had so much publicity. Wonder what they have in common. Ah, that's right, those things they make handbags out of!
We irreverent Smiths call the place "Crikey World" and, when you go there, you'll probably think you're seeing double, quadruple and worse. The reason being that all staff have to wear the uniform khaki shorts and shirt that Steve Irwin has made a trademark of his enterprise.
Lots to see and genuine experiences to have her for all the family. Anything slimy, repulsive, primaeval, deadly is liable to be encountered here but, hey, that's entertainment!
Open 9.00 to 4.30 daily except Xmas Day,
it's $27 for adults so it is not cheap but good value for money nonetheless. Kiddies can slip in for $17 and, remember, Steve puts his money and profits back into saving wildlife. Say what you like about the man, he is genuine. Me, I love the guy!
