In the 1800s, Noosa's early wealth came from the timber and milling industries with tourism developing in the late 1920s. The town has been the site of many tussles between developers and those seeking to preserve the town. Since the seventies, people have continued to migrate from southern states.

As the sun was setting on another day, I went back to spot the koala. There was one in a similar place, and this one had a baby, though it was hard to see, and even more difficult to photographKoala___baby2.jpgKoala___baby1.jpg!
