Noosa's first escape rooms have arrived!

By Red Lock Escape Rooms

Red Lock Escape Rooms are proud to announce their new store is now open for business at Noosa Junction. There are three new escape rooms: Bank Heist, Las Vegas Hangover and Area 51.

An escape room is a game for a group of friends or family where you need to work together to look for clues, solve puzzles and complete the mission of the room, all before the clock runs out. It is a fast-paced and adrenaline fuelled, real-life adventure game!

Red Lock is also a great location for a party or team-building events. Party packages are suitable for up to 20 people and include two escape rooms, unlimited retro arcade and board games, plus catering is available.

Be part of the world's biggest bank heist, uncover the mystery of Area 51, or trace back through your crazy antics leading to your Vegas Hangover, with Red Lock Escape Rooms!

First local women's only retreat - for locals by locals

By Laguna Signage Solutions

Our first women's only retreat for locals, created by locals, will be held at Beach Road Holiday Homes. This event was inspired by the amazing women who live in our shire who have so much knowledge and so many gifts to share.

The retreat is about connecting with each other, having some fun, gaining some knowledge and sharing our voices. It's about giving ourselves some time out to really relax together.

The event starts with an indigenous opening ceremony on Friday 28 February. Saturday morning QIgong will be offered on the lawns, followed by a feast of presentations, talks and workshops on health and wellbeing, relationships, creativity, business and personal development. There'll be time to swim in the pool, play tennis and take some precious "me" time to reconnect with nature.

The Saturday night is white party night with local musicians entertaining while guests feast and dance the night away.

Tourism Noosa members receive a $100 discount for booking by 1 October. You can book directly online or by email (see details below). We'd love you to join the Noosa Circle and celebrate being a women in our wonderful town.

Locals set to benefit from Council’s free data portal

By Noosa Council

Carolyn Bullen from Noosa Council and Carolyn Winkler from Slow Food Noosa look at Council's new statistics and data portal.

Local businesses, start-ups, investors and community groups can reap the benefits as Noosa Council rolls out its free data and statistics portal to the public. The collaboration between RDA, id.services and Noosa Council means the most up-to-date data, statistics and trends for Noosa will now be available for free through Council’s website.

Noosa Council’s Senior Economic Development Advisor Carolyn Bullen said this combined dataset will make it much easier for people to navigate Noosa-specific statistics as they are gathered from various sources including the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and all pooled into one handy place.

Users can access two different profiles: an Economic Profile which uses 11 different datasets to build a story of Noosa’s economy, how it is changing and how it compares to other areas; and a Community Profile, which provides demographic analysis such as age, incomes, ethnicity and households in the region. The statistics can be used for student research, a start-up doing due diligence, a local business planning for growth, a property developer researching the area before investing here, or an organisation that is writing an award or grant submission.


There’s data on everything from household incomes and spending in Noosa, to jobs, demographics, property data and economic impact calculators. The data can be accessed via the Business tab on Noosa Council’s website (see link below).
