Noosa: The Perfect Summer Holiday Destination


With beautiful beaches, subtropical climate and some of the most delicious eats and drinks you’ll find on the Sunshine Coast, Noosa is the perfect destination for a summer holiday.

Noosa’s weather is perfect for summer days by the beach and adventuring in nature, before heading over to Hasting’s street for a gourmet dinner, evening of yummy cocktails or a casual takeaway.

Relax on blissful beaches

Noosa is home to arguably some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Grab your towel and SPF and head out onto the white sandy beaches to enjoy the sunshine!

If you enjoy catching waves, Noosa’s Sunshine beach has the surf for you. But if you’d rather gaze out at a beautiful sunset, we think the Laguna Lookout will be the destination for you.

Stroll down Hastings Street

Hasting’s street is the perfect destination for anyone looking to escape the summer heat with airconditioned shops, restaurants, galleries and more!

Wanting to enjoy the laidback side of Hasting’s street? Stroll down the street coffee in hand until you reach Noosa’s Main Beach to enjoy a day in the sunshine. Once you start to feel hungry, grab a delicious take away pizza from El Capitano and head down to Noosa River to enjoy the sunset, or dine in with the entire family.

In the mood for a spot of luxury? Start your day off with a champagne brunch at Miss Moneypenny’s before hitting the shops to explore international boutiques and local labels. Pick up the perfect beach dress for yourself and some locally crafted trinkets, bringing Noosa home with you.
