Noosa is a very good place to take a holiday or vacation at. The weather is not too cold and not too warm. Well, you may get some very hot days, but, generally, the weather is good for anything you'd like to do. You can go surfing, swimming, tanning, walking, jogging, running, and more. There are great spots to do photography and meditative relaxation.

Life is a bit laid back here. The Council has done well in preventing the area from becoming too modernized. You still have shops and business centers but the main highlight and the most overpowering presence is nature and its awesome sceneries. Parks abound so you'd have good places where you can sit back and joyfully sip your favorite coffee, cappuccino, or hot mocha.
