Noosa is a stylish and relaxed town on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.  Famous for its scenery, beaches and food, it makes a perfect location to have a break.

What To Do First?

Explore Hastings Street - it is the main street in Noosa - full of restaurants, bars, boutique shops and galleries.  By day, you will see surfers with their boards alongside smart shoppers with boat shoes & Panama hats.  By night, the street is lit with fairy lights hanging from the trees and the atmosphere feels very Mediterranean with people strolling from open-air bars to the beachside restaurants.

Where To Try?

There are so many great choices it's impossible to list them all here.  Two places that ought to be on your list are:

An elegant option - Sails Restaurant - modern Australian cuisine, beach views, great for a special lunch or dinner. 

A relaxed, but trendy option - Miss Moneypenny's - lovely outside decking area.  Serves cocktails and very tasty pizzas.


Noosa Main Beach is right by Hastings Street and is patrolled all year round.  Great location to learn how to surf or just to relax on the beach.  If you want to explore you must visit Noosa National Park.   Its entrance is right by the end of the beach and the walk to Hell's Gates rewards you with great views.


Bring your own bottle of wine and catch a sunset cruise.  Ice bucket and glasses provided, you can cruise the river & canals.  A very relaxing way to start your evening and see some places that are only accessible by water.
