Noosa Stories is a weekly community podcast and a place where business, beach, and community meet. Noosa Stories was born by the idea of connecting people in the community through podcasting and I am excited to say that this is Noosa's first ever pure community podcast! In the show, I will share stories of people in the Noosa Shire of how and why they got here, what they do, challenges they faced moving to Noosa and how they have reinvented themselves to be able to stay here. My aim is to show people that, yes, Noosa is beautiful, but for us locals, the community make us stay. Cheers//Yenny
