Arriving in Noosa, our bus pulled in at 10:10am, and once we gathered our bags we took off in the general direction of Noosa River Holiday Park. The bus driver unsure as to whether or not we were actually getting on the right bus, we took the recommendation and hoped for the best. In no time we knew we were heading the right way and that it wasn't far to our stop.
After we checked in and got our site we began walking towards the tent sites located at the back of the campground. Only about 20 steps down the road I pointed out to the water and blurted out "pelican". We both stopped and stood there in awe while observing the size of them. The roamed around the beach almost oblivious to the people swimming and walking around them.
Excited to explore a new area we set up our tent and organized our belongings before heading back down to the beach to check out the crystal clear water and the Australian Pelicans from a closer view point.
The water, much colder than the water further up the coast felt a little more like home, with the first dip in being a bit of a shock to the system. Although it was very nice to finally be in some water that actually felt refreshing instead of warm bath water.
After swimming for a little we floated closer to an Australian couple bobbing in the water close to us. Within seconds we were all lost in conversation with Wayne and Margat. In the end they offered us a place to stay while in Brisbane and were a genuine couple but they live a little too far out of the city to make it feasible.
