1. Share the love early this Valentine's Day!

Treat your loved one to a delicious picnic with a view

Let D'licious Gourmet Hampers pack a beautiful picnic hamper for you, visit Belmondos Organic Market, Gibsons Noosa Homewares and Cafe, Providore on Hastings or Organika for tasty picnic goodies, and find a beautiful spot by the Noosa River, on the beach, at a hidden bay on the edge of Noosa National Park, or on a mountain top.

2. Celebrate the love over dinner!

Discover the incredible Noosa food scene for a romantic dinner

Take advantage of this romantic occasion to check out one of this exciting bunch of new Noosa restaurants - or play it safe with one of the tried and tested Noosa dining institutions.

The December 2021 opening of Lucio's Marina was one of the most anticipated new restaurant openings in recent Noosa memory. The famed Sydney family-style Italian institution has reopened in a prime river-front locale at the Noosa Marina, with an aperitivo bar and impeccable seafood trattoria.

ALBA by Kuruvita now occupies the sprawling restaurant space at Parkridge Noosa, and offers all-day dining at the cafe, providore, restaurant and pizzeria. The space also boasts a cooking school - making it the ideal spot to celebrate a romantic foodie day!

When it's romance you're after, it's hard to go past the moody, intimate surrounds of Locale Noosa, with its Hastings Street address and perfectly-executed modern Italian plates. Or indulge in cocktails and a seven-course dinner at Miss Moneypenny's, with the chef's selection Valentine's Dinner (bookings required).

3. Jump in the river!

Climb aboard a Noosa love boat and cruise the beautiful Noosa River

From sun-up to sunset, the Noosa River is one of the prettiest spots to sit back and appreciate the beautiful things in life. Here are some of our faves:

For a romantic sunset cruise and curated cocktails, jump aboard the chic M.V Catalina Noosa, with its chilled beats, sunset vistas, and the best people-watching in town.

Can you go past a glorious and utterly romantic Gondolas of Noosa cruise or onboard Noosa Dreamboats Classic Boat Cruises?

Go at sunset with M.V. Noosa Queen, Noosa Ferry, Noosa River & Canal Cruises or Drovers Woodfired Pizza Cruise.

Hire a boat and find your own secret spot on the Noosa River.

4. Unique Noosa Indulgences

Enjoy more of Noosa

Noosa is home to an array of artisans, producers, and talented local artists that create unique, one-off pieces that tell your loved one you've put more than a passing thought into their Valentine's Day gift.

Enter a state of deep relaxation at City Cave Noosa, which offers single or coupled float treatments, as well as infrared sauna and massage treatments. Or treat yourself or loved ones and luxuriate with some pampering at one of Noosa's beautiful day spas or massage rooms.

5. Book A Boutique Stay

Make Valentine's Day last a little longer with a stay in Noosa

Unique, boutique stays don't come any more beautiful than the brand-new HOLA (House of Local Art) Eumundi, which is adorned with art from a selection of well-known and up-and-coming local artists.

Beachfront stays are ever-popular in Noosa, and for good reason. Take your pic from a selection of chic and subtly romantic beachside abodes including Seahaven, Tingirana, and Netanya Noosa, or wander the short distance up Noosa Hill to the secluded surrounds of Pepper's Noosa Resort, for the ultimate romantic getaway.
