Noosa is a coastal town about 2hrs north of Brisbane on the Sunshine Coast and it is so worth the drive. Please visit if you’re in Queensland!
We spent a week in Noosa back in November, staying in a beautiful 4 story beach house in sunshine beach (about 5 mins from Noosa). Sunshine beach is small but perfectly formed with it’s own surfclub and some cute cafés – I had an incredible calamari salad at one, sadly I can’t remember the name of the place. See photo.
I can’t rate this whole area highly enough – beautiful beaches, tons of amazing restaurants and cafés, relaxed vibes and plenty of places for a drink or 10.
Hastings street is the Main Street in Noosa and is jam packed with high end boutiques and gorgeous cafés (excellent people watching spot). At night the street is lit with hundreds of fairy lights and looks incredibly romantic.
A few of my favourite spots to eat and drink:
1) bistro c. One hell of a breakfast, situated in a prime spot right on the beach, the views and the food are to die for. Not the cheapest meal but the best in my opinion. See photos below.
2) 10 Hastings street. Gorgeous little cafe towards the end of the Main Street. Love the decor and had a pretty spectacular breakfast there last week- orange and pineapple frappe, and breakfast bruschetta with tomatoes, onion, basil, balsamic and halloumi on sourdough. Dreamy. See photos below.
3) the surf club. A local institution with the best views you could ask for and a really relaxed atmosphere. A great spot to waste an afternoon having a few drinks. Food is basic but good and they have a really varied menu. Photos below.
4) nitrogenie. On Hastings street this place makes ice cream by mixing the ingredients with liquid nitrogen right in front of you. I’m not a huge ice cream lover but this place has converted me. I had some sort of chocolatey biscuity creamy concoction with meringue on top, enough said.
