A Winters Weekend in Noosa, Queensland

It May Be Winter But It’s Not Wintry

It’s almost mid-winter here in Queensland but we’re still getting out in the water and enjoying our new stand up paddle board. It’s perfect for exploring the canals and rivers of Noosa while getting a bit of exercise and the kids like playing round on it too. The weather was picture perfect all week and I even surfed so I still hold onto the title of crummiest surfer in Noosa, even if I did have to wear a wetsuit top.

On Sunday we went to the River Festival, organised by the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club. I have to say that the Noosa River is definitely somewhere I’d like to spend more time and well worth celebrating, so celebrate we did. The kids fished, had a go on a bungy trampoline, got their faces painted and ran wild on the bouncy castle.

Then we went to Doonan, about ten minutes inland from Noosa, for the Steiner Children’s Festival. Doonan is a leafy enclave with gorgeous trees and big views from some places. There were heaps of fun things for the kids to do like a gem hunt, carpentry, making a sword, pony rides, a flying fox and a juggling show.

This is our weekend in pictures. Don’t get jealous, get over here. For life would be truly perfect if only we had some friends to enjoy all this with. Enjoy the photos.
