Noosa! What a beautiful destination 🙂 Just an hour and a half drive from Brisbane, this is one of the Sunshine Coast’s most popular Schoolies destinations, and with good reason. Warm, clear waters and white sand beaches stretch along unspoiled hinterland, with a climate providing sunny days and calm, balmy nights, making for an unforgettable experience.
Not only jam packed with natural beauty, Noosa is a very cosmopolitan town, offering a huge range of boutique shops, trendy bars and fantastic cafes and restaurants. If you like a blend of outdoor activities with modern, fashionable amenities then Noosa will be right up your alley. Days here can be spent on the beach swimming, surfing or kayaking, followed by a trip down the famous Hastings Street, which is located right next to the main beach and is where you will find all you need for shopping, food and nightlife. Hastings Street is the place to be seen, and a great place for people watching (celebrity sightings are not unusual here!). Driving in any direction along the coast will lead you to more pristine beaches, each more beautiful than the next.
Noosa is a launch pad for nearby tourist attractions like the kitschy Aussie World, Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo and the Eumandi Markets, which is the largest open-air market in Australia and operates every Saturday, stretching on for what seems like forever.
A longtime favourite holiday destination for Aussie and international travellers alike, Noosa does not disappoint. From fishing to fashion, with an unparalleled nightlife, this Sunshine Coast hot spot is guaranteed to make you Schoolies experience a memorable one.
