Winter at the beach

I love coming home to Queensland for winter. The weather has been particularly good lately..time for a Noosa beach visit.

We woke up to this view from the hotel balcony.

The pool looked great, but I prefer the beach just a short walk away. Here is Noosa beach early in the morning.

It just keeps getting better as the day goes on.

I love nothing better than diving into the cool ocean.

Later in the afternoon a golden light descends on the beach, the perfect time for a walk.

…beautiful Noosa.


  1. Yes it is one of the best beaches anywhere. Uniquely Noosa.

    • They don’t come much better than Noosa.

  2. Love Noosa too, Debra! Best time of the year to be there. Great photos…

    • This time we stayed at Mantra on Hastings St. We have also stayed at Sebel, which was good. We also love Little Cove Court, but it is a long time since we have been there. The coffee is good in the bakery in the French Quarter at the national park end of Hastings St.
