Located in the heart of Noosa, where beachside luxury meets chilled holiday vibes is the bustling Hastings Street. Here you will be spoilt for choice with a variety of award-winning restaurants, luxury accommodation, chic boutique stores and of course, the famous Noosa Main Beach.

2. Noosa National Park

Step into an oasis of jaw-dropping natural beauty when you enter this expanse of protected green space. Follow the timber boardwalk from Noosa Main Beach and follow one of the many coastal or bushland walking tracks. Stop in for a dip along the way at one of the delightfully secluded bays and keep an eye out for turtles, dolphins, and koalas.

3. Waterfront Dining

Is there anything better than a divine meal, an incredible view and nowhere to be anytime soon? We certainly can’t think of anything… Lucky for you, Noosa Heads is filled with amazing waterfront dining options. Choose from an array of excellent restaurants along Noosa Main Beach (we love Season Restaurant, Sails, Bistro C and Boardwalk Bistro for Hastings St options), or jump on the Noosa Ferry and arrive at Ricky’s Restaurant and Bar, with magnificent sunset views of the Noosa River and hinterland.
