Yandina, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia


A lot of people might know Yandina because of the Ginger Factory which is advertised heavily on TV. The thing that I really love and remember Yandina for are the delicious falafel wraps that David and I were served at the organic cafe pictured above. I cannot explain to you in words how delicious these wraps were - something about the combination of falafel, wrap, hommus and tabouli was just a taste sensation. This isn't a photo of the exact wrap that I had the pleasure of eating (I was too busy devouring mine to bother taking a photo), but I decided to include this photo anyway, just to give you the general gist of where I am coming from, and to make you hungry :)

The other great discovery in Yandina, was this heritage house where they display arts and crafts made by locals. I managed to find some details of wonderful local artists here and spent ages browsing through the gallery, looking at the wonderful pieces they had on display.

Cute, cute, cute, bumble bee dress.

The drive back to Noosa from Yandina was also a real treat with the beautiful Maroochy River to admire along the way...
