Byron Bay and Noosa is usually the places people say they like the most from backpacking the East Coast of Australia. Maybe it is because of the laid back athmosphere, the great hostels or the fact that they both are cities with nice beaches and good conditions for surfing. For me it was a bit of everything. The city itself is much smaller than Byron, but the hostel Nomads was just the perfect size so that everyone were talking to everyone. If it is one place I would have liked to stay longer in Australia it would have been Noosa in order to go surfing, do a trip to the worlds biggest sand island Fraser and to see the Everglades, which only exist here and in Florida.
