Why we love it here

Stunning Noosa Heads is one of Australia's best-loved holiday destinations, and it's easy to see why. The natural beauty and surrounding green spaces envelop visitors with a sense of calm and well-being. Dive into the crystal-clear waters of Laguna Bay or the nearby coves and National Park bays, spot a koala in the eucalypt forests of the National Park, swim, stand-up paddle, snorkel or catch a wave in the Noosa World Surf Reserve, with some of the most perfect point breaks anywhere in the world.

Waterfront eats

Restaurants, cafes, and bars with breathtaking ocean views and chic interiors line Noosa Main Beach - just follow the boardwalk or fairy lights and pull up a spot at any time of the day or night! Venture a little further along the Noosa River, and discover a selection of stunning riverfront restaurants and eateries along Noosa Sound. Jump aboard the Noosa Ferry or take a romantic sunset boat or gondola cruise, and be delivered to your Noosa Sound restaurant of choice in true Noosa style.

What’s on the menu

Great food and drinks! The day starts early in Noosa, get yours underway with a sunrise coffee and a pastry from one of the many coffee carts lining Hastings St, then follow your morning walk or swim with inventive, local eats with an ocean view when you sit down for a long breakfast or lunch by the water. By night, eat dinner as the sun sets over the ocean, then hop from bar to bar, sipping some of Australia’s finest cocktails under the fairy lights. And in between, try the local Noosa ice-cream flavours.

The shopping list

Noosa Heads' main hub, Hastings Street, is an iconic beachside village street lined with an eclectic array of boutiques, homeware stores, galleries, and surf stores, where international labels sit prettily alongside local Noosa-born labels, to help you achieve that effortless, breezy Noosa style.
