Hope everyone enjoyed their afternoon. There were definitely many laughs coming from the group this afternoon!
Phillip recently studied at Lexis Noosa both in general English and in an Accelerate Small Group Class. He kindly agreed to share his experiences with us. This is his story.
My stay in Noosa
My name is Philipp and I live in Switzerland. I decided to brush up on my English before starting a new job in Switzerland. I took some General English followed by an Accelerated Small Group Class. The combination of both courses was excellent. Both for meeting new exciting people and improving the language.
I chose Noosa because of its nature, beautiful long beaches and because I prefer a charming town rather than a crowded city.
When I arrived in Noosa, I was even more impressed than I had expected by how green it was everywhere. It also means that there are always colourful birds twittering and bush turkeys sometimes with cute chicks around. No wonder that the bush turkey is the symbolic animal of Noosa.
I stayed at a homestay to get the experience how Aussies live and to improve my English even more. It was a very valuable decision which I really enjoyed.
There are plenty of activities people can do in and around Noosa. After school, I usually went surfing which is a must-do in Noosa for anyone of any skill from beginner to expert.
I also went paragliding many times to fly alongside the beach or over the gorgeous National Park to experience a wonderful sunset from a bird’s eye view. That was definitively one of my greatest highlights in Australia.
A bit less adventurous but no less interesting was jogging or walking through the National Park and looking for some Koalas which were hiding in the trees.
Another amazing thing was simply the remarkable friendliness of the local people. It did not take long to get invited for a drink on the beach or even for a barbeque at their house.
That kindness is already reason enough to come back to Australia.
I am already looking forward to planning my next adventure Down Under and visiting some old friends.
Today our students went exploring at the Noosa National Park.
Nestled on the doorstep of the famous tourist town of Noosa, this popular park features some of South East Queensland’s most picturesque scenery. Discover secluded beaches, rugged coastal features and views from the iconic headland at Noosa Heads. 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. Keep your eyes peeled for a diverse range of wildlife that live in the park, from sleepy koalas perched on branches to glossy black-cockatoos squawking overhead.
We hope you all had a wonderful time at the Noosa National Park and can’t wait to see you all on the next activity!
Today we say good bye to 5 amazing Lexis Noosa students that have completed their general English courses. We are also saying good bye to 19 of our TAP (Teenage Activity Program) students that have been with us over for 2 weeks.

Nestled on the doorstep of the famous tourist town of Noosa, this popular park features some of South East Queensland’s most picturesque scenery. Discover secluded beaches, rugged coastal features and views from the iconic headland at Noosa Heads. 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.
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.
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.
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. When it’s time to go home, let the Noosa Ferry take you on a relaxing ride from the markets to one of the stops along the river. New stallholders are welcome throughout the year, and most of our stalls are protected from the elements, providing the perfect year-round selling venue.
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 🙂
What a beautiful afternoon to be at the beach learning how to surf!
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.
Hope you all enjoyed your 2 hour surfing lesson. You all did great.
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 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!!
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.
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.
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.
The Driving Force Tour are gearing up for an epic night in Noosa this Friday and Cornerstone can’t wait to have them live on stage.
Nestled among fragrant gum trees, the footy grounds become a hive of activity for the Noosa Farmers Market. The markets offer plenty of different stalls including organic produce, skin care products, marinades, sauces, skin care products, freshly baked breads and cheeses.
With a weekend of spring sunshine ahead, a swim or surf at Noosa Main Beach sounds like the perfect remedy to a long working week!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
