Quick post here. I only had about half a day in Noosa, so immediately after checking into the Dolphin Hostel (nice), I headed to the Sunshine Beach to begin the coastal walk through the national park. Definitely better than any of the walks I had done in Sydney. This one hugged the coast line the entire time and was a bit more secluded compared to the running trails of Sydney. Apparently you can see some Koalas on the walk, but I only saw some dolphins, which was still pretty cool. The hostel was a bit away from the main street area of Noosa, so you kinda had to plan your day around the free shuttles that go back in forth 9 times a day, but it wasn't too bad. Had some pretty good food while over there and bought some supplies for breakfast the next morning. There was a great sunset, but unfortunately I wasn't in a position to take any good pictures.
That night I met a few nice people from England and Toronto that was traveling through the Oz Experience. The English couple are actually planning on visiting Dallas during their travels which blew my mind. I offered them some advice and suggested Austin as a better place to go, so hopefully they'll enjoy it.
Woke up bright and early the next morning to catch sunrise on the beach, and after sprinting along to get a good vantage point for some pictures there ended up being too much cloud cover along the horizon to really see anything. Good excercise though I guess. I left around 9am that morning so I could get to Rainbow Bay before the 1:30pm Frasier Island orientation at the Dingo's Hostel (really good).
