One of Queensland’s most luxuriously laid-back resort towns, nestled in a spectacular sunkissed cove and surrounded by pristine beaches, subtropical rainforest, clifftop walks, and unique wildlife. World famous for its longboard surf culture, and home of the annual Noosa Festival of Surfing it embodies a quintessential coastal lifestyle.
Start your day with an energising walk through Noosa National Park, where you can see koalas, wallabies and echidnas. Climb to the top of Hell’s Gate – the perfect lookout to spot sea turtles, dolphins and whales. Grab a take-away coffee from a street vendor and soak up the view from the beach boardwalk, or sit Parisian café-style at Aromas On Hastings, where people-watching is always on the menu.
Spend endless sunny days mixing it with surfers, bikini bods and young families, floating in the crystalline waters of Main Beach, Sunshine, Castaway or Peregian Beaches. Take an afternoon stroll along Hastings Street for well-earned spot of retail therapy or window shopping among an eclectic mix of designer boutiques, surf shops and coastal inspired homewares stores.
Watch the sunset over the Noosa River with an Aperol Spritz in hand as the sky changes from gold to sapphire, then settle in to dinner at one of the many outstanding restaurants or bistros under the warm glow of fairy lights.
