“The Noosa Story traces the history and development of the Noosa area from the time of Dalla and Kabi Kabi Aboriginal tribes to the present.  This well-documented and critical history works from three angles – history, tourism, and conservation.  This third edition details the changes that have taken place in Noosa since the last edition was published in 1982: the changing face of Hastings Street; the planned development of the North Shore; and further attempts to restore Noosa’s famous beach.  Today Noosa is a prime target for real estate developers who are now willing to invest 100 or 500 million dollars to build luxurious resort-style accommodation.  The Noosa Story documents the effects that these developments are having on the environment of this beautiful region”
