  Springtime at Noosa
by iandsmith

The beach is what drew people to Noosa and that is still the main drawcard. Surfing gave it a prominence and publicity above the other attractions that were there.
The National Park of the headland, the coloured sands of Teewah, the creek that offered abundant fishing. These were all reasons for people to go there and still are but today, the fishing has waned, the National Park is always busy and there's a dozen tours to take you to the coloured sands.
There's also a myriad of other attractions.
The first surf lifesaving club was formed in 1927 but it was surfboarding that put it on the international map.
Today the population is around 10,000 and growing. Real estate is expensive, as is some of the accommodation. Those with money and an artistic bent are liable to be found here and at Byron Bay in northern N.S.W.
