Student Profile – Dominik from Switzerland

Dominik first came to Lexis Noosa in 2017 and studied for a few months with Charmaine in General English.  He was a great asset to have in the Cooking Option in the afternoon class. He shared his expert knowledge with the class and he improved his vocabulary about food.  After he left he went travelling to Cairns and then south all the way to Kangaroo  Island.

Photo: Dominik in Cooking Class July 2017 & a visit to Cairns in August 2017.

Dominik always had a dream to work in Europe in a group of international chefs.  He worked with world renowned chef Anton Mosmann in London making and serving food at Wimbledon Tennis and at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

Photo: Dominik working at Wimbledon and Tottenham Hotspur in London.

Domink returned to Lexis Noosa in September 2018 to further improve his English and to travel some more around Australia.  He did a road trip to Agnes Water last weekend and he has more travel dreams to fulfill.

We loved seeing you again Dominik and wish you all the best for your future career. Hopefully we can visit your restaurant one day.  Your food is always amazing!

Park 5

If you haven’t already than you must go exploring through the Noosa National Park! It’s a beautiful walk along a coastal track and stunning views like this one. Don’t forget to look up high for a cuddly koala around the Tea Tree Bay area.

Eumundi Markets

Eumundi Markets are a must see tourist attraction on the Sunshine Coast! It is on Wednesday and Saturday mornings starting at 7am. Just need to catch the bus 630 from the Noosa Junction station and get off at Eumundi Station. Have fun exploring the hand made items at the markets and enjoying all the delicious food and drink stalls. Yum!!

Koala Australia Zoo

Another must see tourist attraction would have to be the world famous Crocodile Hunter Australia Zoo at Beerwah. You can catch a greyhound bus from the Noosa Junction and it will take you there and back for the day. If you need help booking see the wonderful staff members at the Student Uni Travel store located near the school.

Kayak 7 Another weekend idea could be to hire a kayak or stand up paddle board and explore the Noosa River. Just see the friendly staff at Boardwalk Boat Hire down near the Sofitel Jetty in Noosa Heads.

LiveMusic

There is always plenty of music to listen to around the Noosa Heads area!

Cafe Le Monde has live music from Captain Squidlicker & The Sinking Ships starting from 8.30pm Friday night. Join your friends for some dinner and drinks and have a wonderful night out!

Aromas Noosa has the best cocktails in the town. It’s located on Hastings street it’s the perfect location to take a seat and watch the day go by.
