How to Cure the Common Cold

In a recent major scientific breakthrough Doctors have discovered the cure for the common cold is not as elusive as they thought. Doctor's from Australia's Sunshine Coast have been conducting research on volunteers from many of the other States and New Zealand. They have also found they get similar results with Japanese and European visitors who submitted themselves for testing.

It now appears that the best cure and relief of cold symptoms is to soak up a week's worth of sunshine in Noosa, Australia. Dr Longwood says "The best thing anyone can do for themselves if they are suffering the effects of cold is to go to a warm place, especially in winter." Dr Longwood's advice is well supported by the thousands of holiday visitors who flock to Noosa annually to cure their colds.

It's not just a cold you can cure in Noosa. Noosa is good for whatever ails you. Its common knowledge that most illness is caused by stress and you can't find a more relaxing place on the planet than Noosa. Strolling along the Noosa River in Noosaville is very therapeutic stress relief, as is ducking across the street from the river into one of the many trendy cafes. There's nothing like enjoying a bit of people watching from the comfort of an outdoor café to help you relax and appreciate how good Life can be.

When Rob Shields and his family travelled to Noosa earlier this year on the advice of their family doctor, they didn't have any idea what a treat they were about to discover. Leaving New Zealand on a cold winter morning to arrive in Australia three hours later on a hot sunny day was just the beginning. What a change. The beach was packed, the waves breaking off Noosa's 'First Point' were perfect, people were out and about in shorts and T-shirts, and the atmosphere of positive vibrations was all the healing energy they needed.

Everything about Noosa is welcoming and friendly. The people, the casual dress, the variety of retailers, friendly shop assistants, smiling restaurant staff, tour operators and even the bus drivers reinforce your presence is appreciated. Although Noosa is as trendy as any place in Hawaii, it retains a small village feel. There are no high rises in Noosa. A three story building height limit ensures the hotels and resorts blend into the tropical shrubbery. Rob said "I've never been anywhere in my life that's had so many people walking around in their bathers, they even go to the grocery store in their Bikinis here."

You know you are in a thriving resort town by the shear number of accommodation and outdoor dining choices. Hastings Street is Noosa's most famous address but for eating, Gympie Terrace is the place to go. Gympie Terrace is located along the Noosa River in Noosaville, five minute's drive from Hastings Street or Main Beach. Noosaville is fast becoming the accommodation destination of choice in Noosa for it's easy access, close proximity to everything, and laid back / relaxed atmosphere. The park along the river includes a rambling boardwalk and several covered BBQ areas where families and friends often gather for the day. Kids running, kites flying, boats zooming, sunbathers soaking, it's all happening.

The Shields family stayed at Sandy Beach Resort, one of Noosaville's most attractive small resorts. Enjoying classical Queensland architecture nestled into the tropical gardens, each of the 21 luxury apartments is fully self-contained with all the bells and whistles. The 1, 2, & 3 bedrooms holiday apartments are incredibly spacious. Each unit also offers two TVs, an ensuite off the Master bedroom as well as a private balcony, Video/DVD player, CD players, Direct Dial phones and Wi-Fi Internet connection for travellers with laptops. The resort facilities include two large swimming pools (one heated year-round) a big spa pool, Sauna, and an excellent covered BBQ area. As Rob says "We were blown away by the quality and the value for money Sandy Beach Resort has to offer."
