Noosa and the Sparkling Sunshine Coast

This charming coastal town on the QLD Sunshine Coast offers a true coastal experience where you can swim, greet the wildlife, shop local boutiques, and dine at world-class hatted restaurants. Listed below are some recommended experiences to get the most out of a visit to beautiful Noosa and it’s surroundings.

Swim with Seals

Interact up close with the puppies of the ocean at Sea Life in Mooloolaba. You can dive in to join them for a swim or simply shake their flipper. You can also get to know the penguins, who will be very grateful when you feed them some tasty fish.

Wander Hastings Street

This vibrant boulevard in the heart of Noosa is known for its eclectic mix of beachside luxury and relaxed holiday vibes. Pick up a gorgeous souvenir from one of the many boutiques and shop up a storm at local favourites Toscani, Alterior Motif, and Palm Noosa. Stocking coveted Australian brands such as St Agni, Spell & the Gypsy, and Rag & Bone among handpicked European labels, and high street staples, Hastings Street is the perfect place to find a unique piece of Noosa to take home.


After working up an appetite shopping on Hastings Street, visit Wasabi, an esteemed Japanese cuisine that was the highest rated sunshine coast restaurant in 2018, receiving two hats.

If you prefer to try modern Australian cuisine, head to Season restaurant on Hastings street. With views over the tranquil waters of laguna bay, it’s an easy place to kick back and relax. Try the signature dish, the slow-roasted lamb for two with yoghurt tarator, walnut herb crust, honey whey carrots, onion soubise, orange, fennel, olive, and rocket salad.
