Tribal Travel have just released a brilliant new special for mega yacht Ananconda III.

 The Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef are at the very top of most students “to do” lists while they are travelling in Australia. Here on the Sunshine Coast we’re lucky enough to have both of these attractions within easy reach. 

Ananconda III is one of the best sailing boats available in the backpacker/student market.  Reaching a massive 101 feet in length, there’s plenty of space and shade for everyone.  It has fantastic dive and snorkel options, and is proud to show off some of the worlds best dive sites.  Delicious meals are prepared daily on board the yacht, and the licensed bar provides refreshments throughout the day. At Tribal Travel, we put a large percentage of our customers on Anaconda III, and we receive excellent feedback. 

So consider this special price, as it will never again be as cheap to visit these stunningly beautiful areas of Australia.  Just pop into the Tribal Travel shop if you would like more information.

GO CARD – Much Cheaper!!!

Hi GV!

Just a short note to remind you about the cheapest way to travel by bus on the Sunshine Coast.

The cheapest and easiest way to travel around town is by purchasing a GO CARD from the Noosa Junction Newsagency (near the Commonwealth Bank).  If you are over 15, you  will need to purchase an Adult GO CARD.

Weekly tickets are now unavailable.  Buying a GO CARD is the cheapest way to travel the Sunny Coast.  You will save over 33% every trip compared to travel prices without a GO CARD.

Global Village CPE Course Has A Great Reputation

Many students come to Global Village Noosa to take the Cambridge Proficiency Exam because of its excellent reputation overseas.

Activity Coordinator Nadia Colbourn interviewed a couple of the ten students in Merrilyn’s CPE class to seek their opinion.  They all seem to agree that with excellent tuition and fabulous surroundings, Noosa is the place to study for this prestigious exam.

Sun is out and so are our students

Sandra’s students were enjoying being in our sunny courtyard again this morning. There is no better place to practice your English.

Musical Chairs is the name, dancing is the game!

GV Noosa students were in a jovial mood on Friday afternoon and competed in a fun game of musical chairs for some fantastic prizes. 

Butts were all in with the students walking slowly and carefully around the circle of chairs in anticipation to park themselves in a vacant space. This seemed all to easy so we decided to ‘step it up’ and have the students bust some varied dance moves for each round. This seemed to get the crowd cheering and clapping however the male contestants seemed to worry more about their dance performance than the ladies which ended up with the ladies taking out two of three prizes! Congratulations to Tina, Jack and Michaela. I’m sure they will be busting out their new dance moves at Tribal Night on Monday! 

Michael and Louei take first place

Thousands of students visit GV Noosa every year and all of them are talented in some way or another.  Among the current students there is an elite group of table tennis players who today hit against each other to win the 2 free passes to Underwater World at Mooloolaba and 2 movie tickets to the Noosa Five Cinemas. 

Micahel and Louei were the finale winners.  They will visit underwater World at Mooloolaba this month.  Angelica impressed the male players with her quick eye and hand coordination, she did so well that she ended up in the final with her team-mate Duks, they did not win the final but they were lucky to be drawn as the free movie ticket winners.   I heard ‘Love and Other Drugs’ is a good flick!


Be a part of Noosa’s biggest student/backpackers night……

For all students, old and new, make sure your at Irish Murphy’s this Monday night 10th of January 2011 for TRIBAL NIGHT!

GV After Dark – Thursday Party’s at KB’s

Oh what a night!!!

The rain didn’t hold anybody back last night.  The party was rockin’ at KB’s.  The dance floor was pumpin’ with hot chicks and groovy moves from the lads. A game of Heads and Tails stripped the clothes off a few, awarding the last men standing with a Noosa Big Day Out tour and jugs of beer.

We caught a glimpse of the party fun on camera.  Check it out and come and join us next week Thursday night at KB’s bar, Nomads Backpackers Noosa!!


You might be wondering what all the fuss is about on Wednesday at 2pm, well, that’s the day all the groovy gv crew get down to the beach for some volleyball action, surf and sun!!  Check this youtube out to see what you’re missing out on.
