Postcards from Noosa
If you were looking for a sign that tells you to take a holiday, let this be it. Do yourself a favour and take a trip to the Sunshine Coast, home of your favourite and mine, Noosa Heads!
Eclipsed by gorgeous beaches, lakes and the tropical hinterland of Noosa National Park, it’s not hard to guess why we love this place so much. Enjoy warm water and tropical temps year round, and make sure you check out some of our favourite places to visit when you’re next in the Noosa Shire!
Fairy Pools - Noosa National Park
A quick hike through the Noosa National Park will take you to some natural tidal rock pools, the Fairy Pools. Have a dip in the crystal clear water, or pack your snorkelling gear and to see all the marine life hanging out below! We would highly recommend heading down there early in the morning though, as this little hotspot can get pretty crowded (especially in school holidays!)
