Noosa National

Nestled on the doorstep of the famous tourist town of Noosa, this popular park features some of South East Queensland’s most picturesque scenery.

Spot dolphins frolicking in the ocean at Boiling Pot and Dolphin Point, and be thrilled as thunderous waves crash into the rocks below Hell’s Gates. Wind through lush rainforest, fragrant open woodlands and heathlands exploring 15 kilometres of walking tracks. Walk along clifftops boasting unforgettable coastal views before leaving your footprints on pristine sandy beaches.

Sunshine Plaza

Sunshine Plaza

The Sunshine Plaza is the biggest shopping centre on the Sunshine Coast. Why not spend the day exploring the shopping centre, watch a movie at Events Cinema or have lunch at any of the wonderful restaurants along the Maroochydore River.

 

The Noosa Farmers Market

Noosa Farmers Market

Nestled amongst the fragrant gum trees, every Sunday a hive of activity takes place. The Noosa Farmers Market is packed with locally-produced seasonal produce that will make your mouth water. Come along for the spectacular fresh food and produce and experience the Noosa Farmers Market for yourself.

 

Noosa Marina Markets

Noosa Marina

After your leisurely Sunday breakfast or before a long Sunday lunch at Noosa Marina, take a stroll through our Sunday markets. The Noosa Marina markets operate every Sunday from 8am to 2pm. Our art, craft and local produce market has an idyllic setting on the deck and overlooking the Noosa River, located just seven kilometres from Hastings Street. Take your time strolling around the many market stalls, where a variety of locally made craft items can be found along with the freshest of local produce. Click here to see the Sunday Markets map The atmosphere is alive with music and entertainment from local and interstate musicians.

Noosa Main Beach

beach noosa

We have one of the best beaches in the world right on our door step!!! If you are looking for something to do on the weekend why not spend the day at Noosa Main Beach! You can take a picnic, go for a swim, have lunch at one of the famous restaurant along Hastings Street or just sun bake! Don’f forget to take a towel, your sunscreen and your camera. If you take any photos hashtag #lexisnoosa so we can have a look!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend 🙂

 

Surf Lesson

5

What a beautiful afternoon to be at the beach learning how to surf!

1

The students picked it up so quickly and were catching the waves into shore. All I could see were smiling faces as they were so happy with themselves for picking it up so quickly.

3

Hope you all enjoyed your 2 hour surfing lesson. You all did great.

It’s the Weekend!

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!

Beer Tasting

What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, trying some Australian and New Zealand beers with friends. Cheers!!

Beer 6

This afternoon the Lexis Noosa students tried 5 different beers from Australia and New Zealand.

BEER 1: STONE AND WOOD

Stone & Wood from Byron Bay have burst onto the craft beer scene with some fantastic hand crafted beers including this Pacific Ale which is jam packed full of fresh tropical fruit aromas and flavours. The quintesential summer sessional beer, it has crowd pleaser written all over it.

BEER 2: WHITE RABBIT DARK ALE

Brewed out of the old ‘Little Creatures’ Brewery that was carted across the country from Fremantle (WA), this great dark ale has a great intensity with sweet tones. Medium hops with caramel and toffee notes that lingers for considerable time.

BEER 3: JAMES SQUIRE ONE FIFTY LASHES PALE ALE

James Squire One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale is a crisp finishing, Australian style cloudy Pale Ale with malted wheat for refreshing character and a concoction of hops which create fruity aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus. (Brewed in inner-city Sydney)

BEER 4: CRICKERTERS ARMS LAGER

This easy drinking Cricketers Arms lager was specially crafted to honour friendships and celebrate achievements paying homage to a time where telling stories, cheers and post-match banter was an important tradition. Keepers Lager is crafted using sun-dried malt and infused with citrus Amarillo hops. (Brewed in Laverton, Melbourne)

àLager = effervescent beer light in colour and body

BEER 5: COOPERS EXTRA STOUT

Coopers Extra Stout is a beacon for lovers of a hearty brew. With its robust flavour comprising a blend of fruit, chocolate and hop bitter notes it’s everything a stout should be. Brewed naturally using a top fermentation method, this beer’s unique rich, dark texture comes from specially roasted black malt. (South Australia)

 

Cheers.!.!.! We hope you all had a wonderful afternoon at our Beer Tasting activity.

Incredible Students

Introducing one of our incredible students at Lexis Noosa, Beatrice from Pre Intermediate.

Beatrice 1

My name is Beatrice, I’m French and I have lived in Italy for 34 years.  I learned English at school a long time ago and I sometimes attended English courses.  I speak French and Italian and I’d like to be able to think in and speak English too.

Beatrice 3

 I was worried about being an older student, but I am happy that my age is not a problem in Lexis. I am happy and comfortable in the school and have met some nice students.  At the moment my English is very bad, but I am sure that I am making progress with the lessons at Lexis.  I am looking forward to learning more English skills in the school.

Beatrice 2

To stay in Australia for 3 months I am going to try to get a job as a masseuse or a cleaner.  Any job will be good for me as long as I can improve my English at the same time.

Welcome to Noosa!

Welcome to our Lexis Noosa Family 🙂
