My Noosa This love affair for forty years I’ve shared with you, my Noosa Through storms and cyclones, joy and tears I’ve stood by you, my Noosa. You’ve grown, no more an unspoilt child, but you have held your charms. Your beauty, natural and wild still keeps me in your arms. By Noel Bird for Competition with Noosa Journal Aug.2010.

Re Noosa River Environs: over the past 5 years we have noted the increased pop ulation & subsequent new dev elopments around our lakes & river. This has led to a decrease in our Pristine position of .1% so far. Our concern is that with the increased interest in Climate Change there may be a move away from sustaining the pristine quality of our River System in lieu of changes to the way we change our living & exist ing patterns. Thank good ness for NICA & other such organisations who keep their research up to date & advise Council & other associated bodies of changes. Maybe we will need to build awareness & also to further legislate to ensure our Rivers are not 'taken for granted' as they have in the past, & been polluted. Our SCR Councill ors have ideas for small village sewerage & energy farms to augment the growing needs of its population: a good move if it can be funded SOON!

One of our last & longest fresh water Pristine River Systems in the World: the Noosa River & Environs. Born on its banks at Tewantin; lived there with my parents who fished & crabbed extensively off its banks till 5 years old; moved away but visited often to enjoy the Beaches & seafood; fishing & swimm- ing; met & joined Noel who enjoyed canoeing & kyacking the upper reaches with treks to Cooloola Sand Patch & other camping & fishing sites upriver from Harry's Hut; & retired to Boreen Pt., a peninsula into Lake Cootharaba where we are able to hear the beat of the Pacific Ocean tidal waves on Teewah Beach, some 5 kms. East across the Lake. Yes, we are still actively pushing for World Heritage Listing to conserve & preserve this majestic River & its environs; supporting Noosa Parks Assn. & the Sunshine Coast Regional Council's 'Noosa Biosphere (Ltd)'- a UNESCO initiative to recog nise community involvement - that is 'Man in the Bio sphere'.
