Noosa: About

Noosa
Noosa is from the Aboriginal word "Noothera" meaning "shaded place". Noosa is a place of natural beauty, a cosmopolitan village of restaurants, shopping boutiques and sidewalk cafes. It is minutes from some of the best of Australia's unspoilt environment: beaches, rainforest. bushland, everglades and lakes - couple that with world class food, at some of Australia's best restaurants, shopping and accommodation - there is nothing like it.
The forests and wetlands of the Noosa region provide a natural habitat for a diverse range of native wildlife - koalas, kangaroos, and a huge variety of bird species.

There is some debate about the meaning of 'Noosa'. Local legend has it that it's a corruption of 'no sir' that was the answer given to an early explorer by an Aboriginal leader when asked the name of the now-called Noosa River bar.
