Time camping isn't spent. It's invested

Camping in Noosa

From our very first visit we have been enchanted by Noosa.  It is very refined and sophisticated with glamourous resorts, boutiques, art galleries, nightclubs and gourmet food.  However, it managed to keep a relaxed vibe with plenty of natural beauty to attract nature lovers and surfers.

Until recently we have only managed to squeeze in day visits to Noosa spending all of our time around Noosa Heads and the Main Beach.  Recently we based ourselves at Noosa Caravan Park and had a blast exploring the area.  You can read about it here.

There is no shortage of accommodation, however, be warned that this area is VERY popular.  Therefore you need to book in advance to avoid disappointment and be aware that it comes at a premium.

We choose Noosa Caravan Park as it is just up the road from the vehicle ferry to Rainbow Beach.  It is a lovely park with a tropical feel thanks to all the palm trees and abundance of birdlife.

The bays are not huge and fairly close to one another.  However, I thought it a lovely personal touch that the owner comes out onsite and gives the driver reversing directions.

All amenities are modern and very clean.  There is a dump point for the disposal of black water and plenty of bins located throughout the park for both general and recyclable garbage.

No fires or pets are permitted in the park.  Smoking is also banned in all buildings and communal area.  The park has a solar heated swimming pool, playground, kiosk and free wi-fi.

Now while we have enjoyed the time spent in caravan parks while we get accustomed to the van, we do crave wide open spaces and campfires.  So while we will still visit the odd caravan park here and there, future updates will focus more on camping spots away from the big smoke where you can sit around the fire and drink in the peace and quiet.
