Sophisticated, stylish and always sunny, the stunning beaches, lakes and lush hinterland of the coastal paradise of Noosa all lend to its rightful reputation as one of Australia’s most captivating holiday destinations.

But while a herd of visitors come and go each year to the town peacefully tucked away in the south-eastern reaches of Queensland, there are those who have buoyantly decided on Noosa as their permanent address, in pursuit of the area’s advantageous, carefree lifestyle.

Noosa is the type of place where you can take a morning dip at a choice of beautiful beaches and wander through stylish boutiques along Hastings Street, all before being served lunch by one of Australia’s leading chefs, says Tom Offermann, principal of Tom Offermann Real Estate.

“Noosa also attracts families who wish for a safe and natural environment, with an amenable climate, top-tier schools and all the necessary infrastructure of a big city, but on a smaller, calmer scale,” he says.

“Even professionals, business leaders, and entrepreneurs can continue to flourish in their commercial activities here, and when they need to visit a big smoke, the Sunshine Coast Airport is just 20 minutes away, with not a traffic light in sight.”

As reported in the latest Domain House Price Report, the median for the collective area has seen continued growth, with Noosa Heads showing a 19.6 per cent jump year-on-year to $1.645 million, while Noosaville recorded a staggering 23.3 per cent rise to $1.35 million.

Offermann notes how these numbers will only continue to shift, with many more people still selling up in major cities.

“Sea-changers will certainly feel right at home in Noosa, as life here is calm, filled with people who are overly polite, and are never in any type of hurry,” he says.

“This region just has a way of putting people in a natural state of bliss.”

Inevitably, there’s a sense of pride that comes with living in Noosa, where residents are happy to join local community groups to make new friends and volunteer – as did Ross Fisher, volunteer president and life member of Noosa Heads Surf Lifesaving Club.

“I moved to Noosa 33 years ago with my wife and two young children, directly from the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island, below the Southern Alps,” he recalls.

“I built up a very successful business before semi-retiring some 20 years ago, and as a surfer and surf lifesaver, Noosa was the standout place to move to in 1989, as it was relatively small with a great subtropical climate, renowned for its surfing points and beaches.”

Giving a cue to its Sunshine State nickname, Fisher says Queensland has the longest patrol periods in Australia, with the club’s patrolling year running from mid-September to the first weekend in May.

“I have always thought that, in Noosa, we just roll from autumn straight into spring, as even winter days average at 25 degrees, which are most often still sunny and nice,” he says.

“For this reason, I’m able to swim all year round, but when there’s a good swell on and the point breaks are working, everyone, including me, is all the happier.”
