Noosa National Park Walk

Why not explore the Noosa National Park? Make your way all the way down to the Noosa Main Beach and then follow the water around to the right until you find the boardwalk. Walk all the way out to Hells Gate for spectacular views of the coast. Make sure you are look in the trees at all times as you might see koalas and in the water you might see dolphins, turtles or whales.

Catch bus 631 from the Noosa Junction stop A at 8.03am. It will cost $3.96 one way. Download the journey Planner app on your phone to have access to all the bus timetables and prices.

Australia Zoo

Koala Australia Zoo

If you see Carol at our Student Uni Travel shop you can book tickets for the bus and entry into the zoo.

 

Mount Coolum

Mt Coolum3

Just need to catch the 622 Bus at 9.00am or every hour and hop off at Mount Coolum national park. It cost $3.96 for one way bus travel. Beautiful views await from the top of the mountain and it should only take you 30 minutes to climb to the top.

Cheese Tasting

Today our Lexis Noosa students tried 6 different types of Australian and New Zealand cheeses. I wonder what they will think?.?.?

And the winner was…… Mango and Macadamia Cheese!

KING ISLAND BLUE CHEESE – Australia

Blue vein cheese is a unique category of mould ripened cheese as it ripens from the interior, as opposed to the exterior (like soft white cheese). Blue vein has a strong tangy flavour, a pungent aroma and a smooth creamy texture.

TASMANIAN HERITAGE CAMAMBERT – Australia

Tasmanian Heritage Camembert has a wonderfully satisfying smooth, mild and delicate flavour.  Its rind has a dense, even white mould covering, with a slight mushroom aroma, revealing a silky yet firm and pale centre.

 

MAINLAND EPICURE – New Zealand

Our most intensely flavoured cheese – a block of Mainland Epicure cheese has a strong flavoursome bite to it and firm, crumbly texture. This makes it a memorable cheese for those who don’t compromise on taste.

KENILWORTH – Sunshine Coast

A unique blend of mango pulp and macadamia nuts. This cheese is very different and something that every cheese lover should try!

 

MERSEY VALLEY – Australia

Mersey Valley is Australia’s best loved vintage club cheddar! Mersey Valley vintage club cheddar was created over 35 years ago. Mersey Valley Classic has an extra strong bite, which is balanced with a crumbly melt-in your mouth texture. Mersey Valley Classic is a very versatile cheese that is perfect for a platter, as a snacking cheese or for use in cooking.

KING ISLAND DOUBLE BRIE – Australia

A flagship in the premium Black Label range. This Double Brie blends a rich, creamy Brie style cheese with the unique flora of the earthy Brevi culture to give added complexity to both its aroma and flavour. Made with high butterfat King Island milk, the result is a very special artisan cheese.

Graduating Students

Today we had 16 students finish their English courses at Lexis Noosa.

We have Mia from Michael’s private class, Kai, Cecile and Sawami from Pre-Intermediate class, Alicia, Ayumu and Reina from Elementary class, Marion, Leonardo, Lupo and Manon from Upper-Intermediate class, Maud and Melanie from Intermediate class, Tanja from FCE class and Svenja from CAE class.

Mount 13

Mt Tinbeerwah is located just 15 minutes from Noosa Heads in Tewantin National Park and offers a 1km hike to the top. Beyond the first lookout the track climbs to the fire tower lookout perched 265m above sea level – an additional 300m walk. Bring your binoculars and camera to take advantage of the spectacular panoramic 360 degree views with magnificent views over Noosa and the Pacific Ocean. A perfect time to go is late afternoon to check out the beautiful sunsets.
