Noosa is officially Best Backpacker Destination

When travelling Australia’s East Coast, a must visit place is of course none other than Noosa. With its amazing weather, nature and activities it has everything you ever wanted in a travel destination. Travelers voting for the Golden Backpack awards 2013 obviously agreed with us and – drum roll please – they made sure that Noosa won best backpacker destination in Australia!

If that doesn’t convince you just yet, then let us explain in more detail what makes Noosa one of the best places on earth. For starters, it just really is a little slice of paradise. Think amazing beaches, clear blue water and you lying down on your towel in this scenery… Now we’ve got your attention, don’t we?

Besides those picture perfect beaches, the surfing and the laidback beach lifestyle that goes with it, Noosa has way more to offer… This amazing place also scores high with nature lovers all over the world. Pack up your walking shoes and enjoy the Noosa National Park, with its phenomenal coastal views, and witness national animals including koalas in their natural habitat.

If you can’t get enough of Noosa’s spectacular nature, there’s always more. Explore the Noosa Everglades by cruise or canoe and witness an ancient system of waterways with clear lakes and fantastic wildlife. If the wildlife at the Noosa National Park and the Noosa Everglades still isn’t enough for you, then use Noosa as a base for your visit of Australia Zoo and finally have that cuddle with a koala or check out the saltwater crocs!

A trip to any destination is of course incomplete without spending some of your hard earned money at local stores and markets. This means that the world famous Eumundi Markets needs to steal a place on your to do list while in Noosa! Wander through the Markets’ 500 stalls on Wednesday or Saturday morning and find arts, crafts and produce… Souvenirs, anyone?

Returning to that clear blue water and sand, we can’t help but mention Fraser Island with all it's sand dunes, lakes and the Champagne Pools (seen in the picture on the left).

It just so happens that Noosa is the perfect gateway to visit this World Heritage Listed and largest sand island in the world. All of Noosa’s amazing traits motivated us to depart our Nomads Fraser Island Tours from this stunning location where there’s always something going on for backpackers! There’s many more reasons why you need to see Noosa, but you get the picture!
