Noosa is at the Northern end of a strip of golden beaches known as the City of Sunshine Coast, Australia. This paradise is blessed with many protected beaches spread out along the headland which itself is part of the protected Noosa National Park, containing native flora and fauna of the region. Winter in Australia is from June to August, and summer is from December to February. Getting to Noosa is a very easy journey, just you follow these steps:
Arrange your trip for the best time. Remember Noosa, is in South-Eastern Queensland and gets temperatures ranging from 63-83° F in Summer and 45-72° F in winter. Purchase a return ticket to the Australian Airport at Brisbane. If this is not possible then Sydney or Melbourne will also suffice and obtain a connecting flight to Brisbane or directly to Sunshine Coast Airport. Book your accommodation at Noosa hotels or campsites. Apply for the relevant visa through any Australian Consulate attached to their Embassies in the USA. American nationals should not have difficulty obtaining a visa. Connect to Noosa after arrival in Australia, via a flight from Sydney Melbourne or Brisbane airports directly to Sunshine Coast Airport. If you arrive in Brisbane it is only a 80 mile drive North by car, coach or train.
Visit Hastings St beach, at Laguna Bay right in the middle of the Noosa foreshore. Surfing and swimming is available. Accommodation is available right on the beachfront. The beach is patrolled by the Noosa Surf Life Saving Club. Visit the Noosa National park which has walking trails and signs depicting the flora. A track along the cliff edge of the park leads to the excellent swimming beaches of Tea Tree Bay, Granite Bay, fairy Pools, Hell’s gates, Alexandria Bay, and Sunshine Beach. Visit Noosa River which is serviced by modern accommodation where there are ample picnic facilities, grass banks and calm water for swimming and boating. Noosa also has scuba diving clubs with frequent dive trips all over the Sunshine Coast waters. The Australian Navy scuttled the decommissioned HMAS Brisbane just off the Sunshine Coast at Mooloolaba and the site is now part of the National Parks of Australia. There are regular dive trips to this wreck each week. International standard shopping malls abound in Noosa and Sunshine Coast as well as a boutique shopping style on Hastings St in the middle of Noosa Heads itself. Hastings St is akin to a miniature Rodeo Drive down under. For further information see the following website.
