Our next destination was Noosa, unfortunately we hadn't heard back from anyone in Noosa who had a couch for us so instead booked up a hostel for one night. The journey was short and we arrived late afternoon and took a local bus to the hostel. We immediately missed couchsurfing having had our own room and going into a dorm where no one was actually very chatty or friendly wasn't great. We decided to explore and so went walking to the town. It was an attractive town and certainly wealthy with large modern homes around and expensive restaurants and bars. We sat on the beach reading our book until it got too cold and so headed back.
