Noosa, From Dusk To Dawn.

In Noosa, Rachel’s day unfolds like a cherished ritual. With a seasoned eye, she unveils the coastal town’s hidden treasures – secret alcoves for reading, coffee, and an afternoon sunset spot. Even when there is only enough time for a couple of waves before work, Rach manages to make the most of it. Carpark karma and condition pending, of course.

First thing in the morning I like to have eyes on the ocean, with a coffee I’ll head to a viewpoint like Point Arkwright to plan my day around what the waves are doing. If conditions are right I like to try my karma points for a car park at Noosa National Park. If I’m lucky, I’ll surf on the points followed by a stroll through the park to do some twitching (bird spotting) and test myself on some plant ID. It’s been such a wet summer, so a tropical spot like Buderim falls offers a freshwater rinse in a beautiful rainforest setting. There are plenty of places to watch the sun go down, one of my favourites is the dog beach on the river at Noosa where you look over to the north shore as the sun sets behind Mt Cooroora.
