Australia ranked second in the World’s Friendliest Countries list by Forbes Magazine and a leading accommodation identity on the Sunshine Coast says Noosa is also one of the safest places to travel.
Stay in Noosa General Manager Dave Langdon says Australia’s stable political system, well-maintained roads, low crime rate and high standard of healthcare make it a safe country to explore.
“Tourist destinations within Australia are some of the best in the world in terms of safety, social cohesion and human rights,” Mr Langdon says.
“Tourists can safely enjoy unique landscapes in places such as the Sunshine Coast, from the vast outback to wide ocean beaches, without a worry.”
“The culture of Noosa is built around beach-inspired fashion, fine wine and gourmet foods,” Mr Langdon says.
“Queensland Tourism Industry Council Chief Executive Daniel Gschwind says Queensland is a safe destination for international tourists and the tourism industry as a whole is focused on how to minimise risks for travellers.
“Potential travellers place an increasingly high value on the safety and welfare aspects when making destination choices,” Mr Gschwind says.
“The further away that people travel, the more concerned they are likely to be about being away from their support network. To this end, the Queensland tourism industry and government agencies have gone to great length to provide accurate information to visitors which is available in multiple languages.”
