Noosa is a small town on the coast, where lots of rich people live. The town has a wide variety of restaurants and we went out for a Mexican.
The next day we went canoeing. The river was very calm and still and the reflection of the trees in the water was beautiful. We canoed around Lake Como for a bit then paddled to our campsite, where we pitched our tents and settled in for the night. The other people on the trip were not seasoned travellers and had worn themselves out rowing, so went to bed very early.
The next day we rowed further up the river for about and hour and a half. Then we, and with a bit of encouragement, the rest of the group walked the 12km return trip through the rainforest and up to the sand dunes. These were very strange dunes as they were inland. Over thousands of years the sand had been blow from the coastline. As the winds dropped vegetation had grown back surrounding the dunes. Just as we got back to our canoes it started to rain. Half way back to the camp it got heavier and didn't stop for two whole days! This meant the return canoe trip was not fun. The river had risen by about 2', and was no longer calm and still. We paddled as hard as we could against the waves, nearly tipping over several times. Then eventually we reached our pick-up point. We were soaking wet, cold and tired. We then had a twenty minute speed boat ride across the more than choppy lake. Both the boat and us spent more time bouncing out of the water than in it. It was the scariest thing we have done in Australia!
