This region is famed for its stunning natural beauty, perfectly illustrated by the undulating Hinterlands and sweeping beaches. Noosa is the epi-centre of the coast and provides an idyllic two night stay as you travel towards Fraser Island.
Unwind on the famous surf beach, wander along fashionable Hastings Street lined with boutique shops or the more active, hike through the Noosa National Park where you are likely to see some Koalas within the branches of the Eucalyptus trees.
