Aussies Quick To Promote After Royal Announcement
Australian tourism chiefs in the surfing town of Noosa, Queensland, are keen to capitalise on the recent announcement by Prince Harry and his new bride Megan – aka the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – that they will travel Down Under this October.
Kensington Palace has announced the Duke and Duchess will visit Sydney for the 2018 Invictus Games – a Paralympics style event for defence veterans – of which Prince Harry is patron.
It hasn’t been revealed if they will travel elsewhere but rumours are rife that the Royals may travel to Noosa to stay with fellow Suits star Gabriel Macht and his Australian wife Jacinda Barrett.
With everything from Everglades to the most delectable food and wine, here’s five reasons why Noosa might want to be on your wishlist:
The Noosa Everglades
One of only two everglade systems in the world, the other being found in Florida, the Noosa Everglades are one of Australia’s best kept secrets. Known as the River of Mirrors because of its stunning reflections, they cover 60kms of pristine waterways as well as a wide variety of flora and fauna.
The Fairy Pools
Those searching for a natural swimming spot need look no further than the Noosa Fairy Pools in Noosa National Park, which are the Sunshine Coast’s natural spas. These two natural tidal pools lay low between the basalt rocks just west of the tip of the headland at the eastern end of Granite Bay, near Noosa. Be sure to pack your snorkel!
One of the most romantic places in Queensland, the Noosa Spit is an untouched stretch of beach where white sands meets crystal-clear waters. The beach is also protected from the bigger surf waves making it a great spot for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and sailing.
Noosa is world renowned for some of the best surfing breaks in the World and if you decide to participate in one of Australia’s favourite pastimes, you can guarantee crystal clear water, magnificent views and an abundance of marine life. Beginners can head to Little Cove, Noosa Main Beach or First Point. Advanced surfers should test their skills at Nationals, Granite Bay and Alexander Bay, where there are bigger waves.
Noosa’s Food & Wine
With award-winning restaurants, cafés and bars, Noosa is a food lovers paradise, and it’s even home to one of Australia’s biggest food and wine festivals. Taking place from 16-19 May 2019, Noosa’s Food & Wine Festival features 70 delectable events showcasing some of the country’s best chefs and beautiful locations.
…………………a right Royal destination by all accounts!
