Sunny start to 2020 as beachgoers enjoy Noosa

WHAT better way to spend the first day of the New Year on Noosa Main Beach?

Hundreds of locals and tourists set up their makeshift beach sites for the day as they enjoyed sun, sand and salt water.

While people lined the water’s edge, crowd numbers didn’t seem over-congested and the sometimes dreaded journey into Hastings Street was relatively smooth.

For holiday makers Lucca Herbert, 11, from Sydney, and Samuel Trompf, 8, from Wangaratta in Victoria, they spent the afternoon playing in the sand, and brushing up on their beach safety skills with life savers.

“You have to swim between the flags and if you get stuck in a rip you put up your hand and a surf life saver will help you,” Samuel said.
