Home. Travel Guide » Noosa


Noosa is a popular holiday spot for a good reason. Beautiful, sheltered beaches surrounded by a totally unique national park, huge goannas, inland water ways, local market days all bathed in sunshine is what Noosa is all about. The Noosa Everglades are one of only two everglades in the world - rent a canoe or take a tour through the waterways to spot wildlife. Noosa is also a popular launching pad for Fraser Island trips, a backpacker favourite experience. Noosa has become a popular retirement resort town which means it can be expensive but for the budget backpacker, a few days hanging out on the beach is wonderfully free.
