“N” is for …

An Aussie friend of mine once mentioned to me before that the Gold Coast is usually where the foreign tourists go while the Sunshine Coast is where the locals usually prefer to spend their holidays in. I’m not sure if everyone would agree with that but I somewhat understand what he was saying – this part of Queensland is definitely more relaxing and enjoyable to visit as long as you know where to go.

Thankfully, my in-laws are currently in town for a few weeks and we’re all discovering this part of Queensland together just like how “the locals” do it.

Our first stop is Noosa, which is undoubtedly the “shopping district” of this area – with its upscale retail stores and restaurants all lining Hastings Street.

As with most of our family holidays, it’s usually the gastronomic discoveries that leave a lasting impression on us – and this trip is no exception. Our unanimous favourite dessert place is Nitrogenie, which is “the smoothest, creamiest, purest tasting ice cream you could wish for” in this part of the world.

We couldn’t stop raving about it and just wanted to have more of it.

Unfortunately, they have yet to open a branch in Brisbane so I guess we’ll have to hold on to our craving until our next visit to Noosa… or until we find our own Genie in a bottle who will grant us our wish!
