Not just the beach! Our Noosa accommodation features much more

Marketing Ocean Breeze - Friday, March 18, 2016

While the Sunshine Coast remains an idyllic place to relax and unwind for your vacation, people have different methods of relaxation. Some like the beach and a cocktail, some prefer to sightsee a little, and some prefer to sightsee from dawn until dusk. And others prefer a little more adrenalin.

If this last category fits you, you have come to the right place. Noosa Heads features some of the finest adventure sports to be had anywhere in Queensland. From saltwater and freshwater fishing charters, to water sports, to more terrestrial pursuits such as hiking and mountain biking, your Noosa accommodation with us here at Ocean Breeze Resort puts you in striking distance of them all.

The Noosa River, and nearby Lake Weyba, serve as a nursery and host for a number of saltwater fish. Many congregate around the mouths of these rivers, as they prepare to run and rear offspring. These smaller fish attract larger fish, which, in turn, attracts you. With numerous well-regarded fishing charters ready for you, you can access them easily.

Meanwhile, Noosa National Park lies just to the east of us, its impressive peaks dominating the view. Locals have carved paths up these slopes and along the impressive shorelines, allowing our visitors the chance to experience directly the magic of the coast on their own. They can be walked or pedalled: and with plenty of convenient cycle enthusiasts nearby, you will not have to go far to get equipped.

Meanwhile, back nearer to the beach, water sports await those who look for wakeboarding and jet-skiing opportunities. When you pay us a visit here in Noosa, you have choice at your fingertips for whatever activity gets your blood going. At the end of the day, you can retire to the beach, just outside your door, and slow the pace back down again.

We're sure you've had worse days than that. Contact us today to get started!

Ocean Breeze Resort: Noosa Accommodation incorporating Green Space

Marketing Ocean Breeze - Wednesday, December 16, 2015

It has been well established that green spaces serve to relax and refresh us. They offer us a quiet and calming landscape for us to find a moment to take a quiet break from our busy lives, surrounded by natural features. City planners have lately attempted to encourage the creation of more spaces like these, but enjoying them can be a rare luxury for many urbanites.

It is this scarcity that encouraged us to include greenery and natural features in to our Noosa accommodations. At Ocean Breeze Resort, we know that a key focus for your vacation is to find your centre and refresh yourself, and we like to include such assets as green space right in to our landscape.

Our accommodations incorporate temperate gardens throughout the grounds. As well, we are located within 50 metres of some of the most outstanding nature walks in the region. The coastal rainforest here provides the perfect setting to expand upon the natural theme provided by our resort.

When you need a few days to recharge your batteries, a true jungle has been well established to beat out the urban jungle. At Ocean Breeze Resort, we can guarantee ample time among a natural setting.

Hope to see you soon.

The Evolution of Noosa

Marketing Ocean Breeze - Tuesday, September 15, 2015

The Shire of Noosa first finds its way in to public record in the log of Captain Cook's first voyage, as he made his way along the Australian coast. A small harbour by the mouth of the Noosa River, the site was noted for its tropical beaches and clear blue water.

As Europeans began to settle the region, Noosa Heads began to spread its humble roots as a fishing village. 'Coaster' trading schooners plied the coastline between these small hamlets, as few were connected by road or rail at this point. This was set to change with the Gympie Gold Rush, just north of the Noosa Heads region: thousands of gold seekers thronged the port, intent on carving out their share of the rush. This boom was helped along by prospectors seeking to exploit the rich timber of the tropical forest at the same time.

However, soon after the Second World War, tourism in Noosa took over. As southern Queensland continued to grow its urban centres, more and more city residents began to look elsewhere, to find an area to put aside purely for vacationing and relaxation. Noosa Heads, with its abundance of natural beauty and outstanding climate, was a prime candidate. Accommodation and housing for holidaying Queenslanders and out-of-state visitors soon sprang up in Noosa, and the city was transformed.

The summer population now triples during holidays, when urbanites flood the beaches. The regions population also continues to grow, as some find the allure of Noosa and the Sunshine Coast too tough to resist year-round. An entire infrastructure of good restaurants and tourist excursions has sprung up to complement the beach vibe, ourselves included.

At Ocean Breeze Resort, we offer self-contained apartment style accommodation right in the heart of bustling Hastings Street and just a moments stroll to Noosa's stunning main beach and the entrance to Noosa National Park. Our clean and spacious apartments are set amongst lush gardens, ensuring your stay, and your senses, reflect the tropical grandeur of Noosa Heads and the Sunshine Coast region.
