Noosa is in the top 10 places to visit

NOOSA has been named among the top 10 must-see Australian holiday destinations.

Travel website TripAdvisor released its Top 10 Australian Travel Destinations list on Tuesday and the Coast's icon surf suburb was highlighted as a must-see.

The Travellers' Choice destinations for 2015 put Sydney in at number one followed by Melbourne and Brisbane. Noosa was ranked in the number eight spot.

Gold Coast, Perth, Darwin and Canberra were notable absentees. The study measured the quantity and quality of reviews on the Trip- Advisor site, rather than visitor numbers.

"Hike across Noosa National Park's cliffs and forests, canoe through the Noosa River Everglades, kayak across the open sea or just bask in the sunshine on golden sand that stretches and sparkles for miles," TripAdvisor stated.

The number 10 spot was gifted to Cloncurry, a controversial talking point for many critics who believed Gold Coast deserved to make the cut. Noosa was recently named as having the 6th best beach in the country.
