A buddy of ours from Sebastopol contacted us and said that he was in a place just north of Brisbane, called Noosa. He said it was a cool place so we decided to check it out. It turned out to be one of the best places that we've been to in Australia. Our campervan park was located right on the beach of an inland estuary and a short distance from the ocean, the downtown area, and some great hiking trails. We didn't get to meet up with Erin from Sebastopol, but we made friends with two couples; one was from the UK and the other two were a Canadian and an Aussie, looking to possibly settle in back in Australia. We all took a cool hike along the coast and up through the coastal hills and then hung out on the beach for the rest of the afternoon. The next day, four of us rented kayaks and cruised around the estuary checking out the mansions on the water. The weather turned out to be perfect both days, which really made things much more enjoyable. After we all finished kayaking, we said goodbye and drove about 5 hours to Tween Sands, slept overnight and then got up and drove 7 hours to Airlie Beach by the Whitsunday Islands. We will be here for the next 3 nights.
