Often looked upon as a bolt-hole for wealthy urbanites, Noosa is, in fact, a superb place for a romantic getaway, an anniversary weekend, or a long break away from work. Spreading along the sandy shore adjacent to Noosa Heads, and entwined around the estuary of the graceful Noosa River, Noosa combines the sophistication and pizazz of an exclusive spa town with the laid-back coastal vibe that Queensland is famous for. Noosa’s upmarket hotels are perfectly complimented by a wide selection of options for the budget-conscious visitor. You can find everything from a tiny-house loft in the hinterland, to a bush-fringed boutique hotel a flip-flop’s toss from the beach.
Noosa is famous for its surfing, and there’s a nice, uncrowded little point break around the Main Beach breakwater. If you’re feeling energetic, the walk around the coast through Noosa National Park is spectacular. Hastings Street, Noosa’s tree-lined main drag, is crammed with great restaurants and cafes. You can alternate your shopping with languid lunches (try the chilli-salted fries and a glass of Chardonnay at Rococo), or people-watch over cold drinks at Miss Moneypenny’s. In the evening, Noosa’s restaurants beckon, and afterwards, you can wander arm in arm along the beach in the moonlight and savour that warm Queensland night air.
