If you like the big city life, nightclubs and parties, Noosa is not the place. It is an early morning town; a health and fitness town; a foodie town; a retiree town; a community focused town, and most of all, a country town on the beach.
Pros: - Quiet (compare this to Maroochy, BrisVegas, etc). - Beach - No traffic lights! (except the 1 near/next to the pool/school). Roundabouts only - Everything is a 5 to 10 minute drive - Beach - Weather - Beach - Access to lovely food and drink - Happy people nearly everywhere - Airport access is 25 mins away.
Cons: - Very expensive - Place is hell busy and crap during Schoolies and Christmas time (pro tip: leave on your own holiday, then) - Very expensive - Very expensive - Oh, it's very expensive. - Tradies charge like a wounded bull to do _anything_
