For anyone who is looking for a spectacular holiday, Noosa Waters on the Sunshine Coast must rank amongst the best areas for families to gather. Just an hour or so from Brisbane, this little nook is fast becoming the place to aim for even amongst Australians who are looking for holiday homes in the area. Consequently, there is a whole array of holiday accommodation here to suit all tastes and even the caravan crowd is taken care of as well.
Self contained accommodation is perhaps the most family friendly style to aim for, or perhaps a service apartment or holiday home would give the kids the freedom to run around and expend some energy. In Noosa Waters, just next to Noosaville, there is a very interesting mix of water front accommodations and those set a little further back. All homes are built to a very high standard so there is no need to worry that photographs have been touched up a little!
Through Noosa Waters runs a canal that is higher than the river level. Consequently, the water has to be pumped in every day and there are locks and weirs to facilitate this.
There is plenty to do in Noosa Waters and its environs, particularly for those who love water-based sports. Once the holiday maker is out on the water, perhaps up the Noosa River for example, the first thing that strikes the visitor is the absolute peace and serenity away from the bustling centre that is Hastings Street in Noosa itself.
In the Everglades, reached from Lake Cootharaba, the Everglades is a vast sheet of water that reflects the sky like a mirror. It is actually shallow enough to walk in for most of the year and stretches a good ten kilometers by five. In the Noosa River wetlands, marvel at the colour of the stained waters and then get a canoe for a closer look. This is as close to peace on earth as any individual can get!
For those who want someone else to do all the work, get a Noosa Everglades Discovery ticket which lasts for two nights. They give you all you need to be off in the quiet and will even pick up and drop off at your chosen holiday accommodation.
In Noosa Watters too is a very unusual phenomenon. A croquet court! Nestled among the well manicured lawns and parks, there are also kids play facilities so if the family want to stay put for a while, they can.
For the thrill seekers, Aussie World is not far away and they always have a new ride to titillate holiday makers. Although primarily built for kids, there are adult rides now which parents and older kids get to enjoy as well. Try out the first Sunshine Coast water ride here, called - the Plunge!
