Noosa, Noosa, Noosa… It is a little piece of heaven on earth.
Just a short drive from Brisbane is the Sunshine Coast. The area is known for its stunning beaches, surfing, nature reserves and eco-parks. Noosa is one of the most popular spots on the coast and it’s not hard to see why!
We arrived from Brisbane by bus at 11am (the trip took about 3 hours). It is much faster to drive and would take about 1.5 hours.
Once we were all checked in to our accommodation, we went straight to the beach! Our first day was spent eating, exploring and sleeping on the beach (the ideal holiday lifestyle). We ended the day with Ice Cream and watching the sun go down. – Noosa is known for beautiful sunsets.
Eat. Beach. Sleep. Repeat.
10 Hastings Street Cafe became our favourite spot as soon as we stepped in the door. It had the coolest beach-y feel and as soon as our food came out we were hooked! We even went here for a meal all 3 days we were in Noosa . The Banana Bread with Coconut Sorbet was my favourite (Pictured below).
Our moto of the trip was pretty much ‘Eat. Beach. Sleep. Repeat’ what else would you rather do on holiday?
Our second day in Noosa was spent in Noosa National Park. (of course after a quick stop at 10 Hastings Street for Breakfast!!)
The National Park has a few different walking tracks. We chose the track to ‘Hell’s Gate’ which is situated at the end of the National Park. I knew there were hidden Fairy Pools along the way to Hell’s Gate and we were on a mission to find them!!
The Fairy Pools were absolutely Stunning! We could have spent all day there spotting tropical fish in the water, swimming,and sun bathing on the rocks. I of course, spent some time pretending I was a mermaid.
Dolphin Point is a spot right before Hell’s Gate which is known for spotting Dolphins! Unfortunately we didn’t see any on this day. They must have been too busy catching their lunch!!
Some of the walking track is paved but after a certain point it turns into a dirt track right along the cliff, so be sure to watch where you’re walking!
Shortly after leaving Dolphin Point we arrived at Hell’s Gate. It was a beautiful spot, with the ocean stretching as far as the eye can see.
We absolutely did not want to leave! We got up really early on day 3 to make the most of being in paradise. As it was raining a bit in the morning so we spent this time looking around the awesome shops the main street has to offer.
Once the rain had cleared up we spent the rest of the day at the beach until we had to leave.
We will be back Noosa!!
