Qld - Noosa

We stayed at Tewantin which is a five minute drive from the main tourist strip at Hastings St in Noosa. Last time we were here, about 18 months ago, the beach at Noosa had been totally washed away by storms but it is now beautiful again. Amazing! It must have taken thousands of tons of sand to build it back up.
We had a delightful trip on the Noosa ferry cruise which takes you on a round trip from Tewantin boat Harbour to Noosa. The captain is very informative and gives a running commentary on the history of the area as well as a view of some of the beautiful homes and units on the waterways.
Staying at Tewantin was very relaxing and out of the hustle and bustle of Noosa. I guess because we have been on the road for so long now, we really enjoy the quieter places.
We stayed here for three days and then we parked our van in the driveway of friends in Mooloolaba for four days. We were hoping to take the kayak out on the waterways here but it stormed for the entire time which put an end to that idea.
Since being in Queensland the last three weeks, we have had rain, rain and more rain. So much for the slogan ‘ Beautiful one day, perfect the next!”
