Noosa Notes

Walk and cruise Noosa in winter

Walk and cruise Noosa in winter

​Marco! … Polo! Usually the sound of summer in Australia. I’m overlooking the pool at Mantra French Quarter Noosa with a glass of Lanson in hand and it is supposedly winter. Don’t tell the kids. Perhaps winter never comes to Noosa...

VISIT NOOSA

Just how close to a humpback whale would you feel comfortable being? Watching the majesty of humpbacks as they travel through the warm waters off Noosa on their annual migration north is an unforgettable sight – their playful tail slaps, breaches, sprays and fin ‘waves’ seem even more incredible when you consider their size … around 15m in length and weighing more than 35 tonnes!
