Noosa and Everything Australian

Australia6If ever a town had a firm grip on their identity, it’s Noosa, writes Ed Peters for the South China Morning Post.

Located a couple of hours above Brisbane on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, the town basks in its all-Australian personality – from the flawless beaches and the densely wooded national parks, to the laid back attitude of the locals, there is a little bit of Australia hidden in every corner.

If cuisine tickles your fancy, a tour of Noosa is for you, he recommends.

Hastings Street is packed with fine food boutiques, specialised eateries and chic restaurants, all interspersed with more affordable cafes.

The town is home to an unusual combination of chain-stores and alternative living retailers making it a shopper’s paradise.

One of the main attractions is the twice-weekly market at Eumundi, where proud locals display handmade arts and crafts, eco-friendly organics, delicious food and unique souvenirs.

If you love the Australian laid-back lifestyle, Noosa is the place to be, says Peters.
