Things to do in Noosa

Hastings Street

Hastings Street unites fashionistas and foodies in one deliciously stylish strip in the heart of Noosa. Just walking distance from the main beach, you could be soaking up UV rays on the sand and hitting the strip for some retail therapy within minutes. Shop till you drop along Hastings Street with a range of high-end boutiques, signature local designers and your favourite labels dotted in between. 

Some of the best bars and restaurants line the Hasting Street strip from cute cocktail bars like Miss Moneypenny’s to local favourites like Bistro C. And let’s not forget, Noosa is home to the Noosa Food and Wine Festival where you can taste some of Australia’s best food and wine in an event for all senses over a weekend in May.

Eumundi Markets

Less than 30 minutes’ drive outside of Noosa is one of Australia’s best art and craft markets, the Eumundi Markets.  Known for their locally made artisan treasures, the Eumundi Markets are open every Wednesday and Saturday morning and you can bet your bottom dollar you won’t be able to leave without taking home a unique handmade gift or some delicious produce from one of the 500 market stalls.

Noosa National Park

The 15km of walking tracks will provide you with some of the most incredible natural scenery in South East Queensland, from secluded coves to rugged coastal tracks and 360-degree views from the headland at Noosa Heads.

The fairy pools in Noosa National Park are the best places to cool off and it can be worth your while to BYO snorkel to see the coral and sponges beneath the rocks at low tide.
