Plan a Mid-Week Noosa Staycation

18 Aug 2021

Hey Locals (and friends just a drive away from Noosa). Can’t travel? Lucky you’re in one of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations already! Make like you’re on holidays and book a mid-week staycay in your own backyard, to make the most of the lull, and take your pick of last-minute Noosa accommodation and restaurant reservations.


A Hastings Street institution and one of Noosa’s best hotels, it’s hard to imagine a better spot to spend a few days than the Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort. With the sprawling lagoon pool, swim-up bar, evening poolside tunes at The Cabanas, sunset views from the Riviera lounge, in-house day spa and two adjoining restaurants, you literally won’t need to leave.
