    The kitchen was really bad, only 6 hotplates so it was always a long queue for it. The pots and the kitchen equipment was really bad and the sinks was smaller than a bathroom sink. Some of the staff was really friendly though and the had at least two free activities every day.

    After Melbourne, my favorite place on my entire trip. Such a lovely little town. So chilled and beautiful

    Insider Tip:Go to Sunshine Beach, waves are amazing and much quieter than the main beach.

    Noosa / Noosa Heads

    The city of Noosa is really worth a trip, especially when you are on a backpacker tour down the Aussie East Coast. Wanna see rich people housing? Go and see Noosa. Its true, but Noosa does not only have a quite good number of "palaces", it also offers a beautiful landscape, many different sorts of activities and you can really enjoy your time in Noosa! Would do it again immediately!

    Insider Tip:After a nice day of exploring Noosa with your hired bike, go to Noosa Beach House, a tiny noble Beach House Bar/Restaurant on the main street, it's really worth a visit! (Prices - average/affordable for backpackers)

    You must see Noosa, for many australians in Brisbane it's a traditional spot for the weekend. You could stay here for 1 night or 5. The natural backdrop of the beaches is stunning and you can find yourself many places to eat good food at and while away the time.

    Insider Tip:Farmers market on a sunday and traditional Fish and Chips behind Sunshne beach in the little strip of restaurants.

    Really great town lots going on, beautiful beach's and isolated bays if your willing to walk a bit further. Lots of stuff going on at night but generally a bit pricier than other towns on the Sunshine Coast. Well worth a visit.
