Arts & Culture

Noosa has a rich and diverse cultural heritage. The arts, music and drama scene all blend superbly with the stunning backdrop.

Discover the creative side of Noosa with artists and artisans including glass blowers, printers, painters, sculptors and ceramicists who showcase their work in local businesses, cafes, markets, book shops, restaurants and galleries. Or for something a little different, enjoy a master class or workshop run by a local artist.  

The main public art gallery is the Noosa Regional Gallery, which presents a strong collection of Australian contemporary art and local and touring exhibitions. Discover the fascinating history of the region at the Noosa Museum located in the picturesque hinterland town of Pomona, just 25 minutes from Noosa Heads.

Be entertained by Noosa’s musicians and performers at local venues and restaurants, free community concerts, at annual festivals and Pomona’s historic cinema.

The Noosa Long Weekend Festival is an annual event in July which celebrates local talent and well known and emerging talent from all over Australia. It’s 10 days of arts, literature, dance, drama, music, food and fun. The Noosa Jazz Festival has the town swinging in September each year with the sounds of jazz ringing throughout restaurants, cafes, venues and parks.
