The longest fine sandy beach in the world is not the only attraction which this city has to offer from its location on the northern tip of the Sunshine Coast. Noosa's inhabitants care deeply about protecting their city from uncontrolled development and maintaining the quality of life which makes it so attractive. It is a city with pedestrian zones, where buildings are no taller than the treetops and is in unspoilt surroundings which protect flora and fauna. Although it is just over 100 km from Brisbane, Noosa maintains its relaxed way of life and close ties to nature. Add in a wonderful climate to all that, and you have the perfect destination for a family language holiday in Australia!
