My favourite weekend - noosa exploring
Noosa is a heavenly place in Queensland, only two hours' drive from my home in Brisbane. I have spent many summers (and winters) in this glorious beach town, which has aromatic bushlands, stunning clear beaches and a plethora of amazing restaurants. The gorgeous scenery creates the ideal backdrop for hiking or walking on sand, timber walkways or rocky inclines. One of my favourite paths is the traditional walk from Hastings Street at Main Beach up towards the Noosa National Park and travelling the five kilometres to Hell's Gate, an amazing lookout point over the never-ending azure ocean.
Along the track, find coves to stop at and explore, sitting on rock tops to watch the ocean lap in and out. Whenever you need some healing time, or a breather from your everyday life, this is the perfect place to escape.
