There's a rocky beach that defines the curving shoreline of Granite Bay in the Noosa National Park. Smooth, rounded pebbles of granite, dark grey and black, cover the shore instead of the fine, white sand that is synonymous with Noosa's most popular beaches.

The waves of a lapping tide wash over these granite stones, rolling them about so they tumble into one another. The result is a soothing and rhythmic 'rock music' that reaches those who tread the path high above.

The track to Granite Bay, and beyond, hugs a stunning section of coastline. We followed it all the way to the wide and beautiful beach of Alexandria Bay and back again. Upon our return to the place where we had begun, after hours of walking and swimming and walking again, our legs were most definitely weary and our hearts most definitely full.
