Noosa

Standard

 

Last weekend we went camping for the first time since we have been in Australia. I must confess that I was a bit apprehensive because of the native bugs and venomous spiders but it was actually good fun and we surely expect to repeat it soon.

The invite came from some friends and we ended up being a group of 19 adults and 6 kids in total! We got together for meals at the camping kitchen and some of us ended up meeting at the beach or around Noosa Heads.

We had not yet been to Noosa so it was a great opportunity for some sight-seeing and driving around. Noosa beaches, though great for swimming, are also great for longboard surfing. The town has a great atmosphere and definitely walking around you get the feeling that this is the kind of place that makes you feel that you´re on holidays everyday.

If you are in Noosa on a Saturday morning be sure to check out the Eumundi Markets. They´re really worth the 20 minute drive! Also, on the way back home you should stop at the Nutworks, in Yandina, and have one their magnificent macadamia ice-creams 😉
