The hub of Noosa, Hastings Street, is the scene to be seen. A mecca for all things draped in relaxed luxury, the street was made for pedestrians to wander in and out of boutiques and surf shops, sit for hours in cozy cafes, and soak in the views of the ocean and headland just meters away.
Known for its gastronomic fare, start your mornings on Hastings Street at the iconic Aromas cafe for a coffee and crowd watching experience before heading to Noosa’s staple, Cafe Le Monde, for breakfast. If your body is craving healthier fare, look to Vanilla Food or Coconut Head, restaurants known for whipping up plant-based eats.
Enjoy an active lifestyle by spending some time walking right to Noosa National Park, having a swim at Noosa Main Beach, or stretching your muscles at Noosa Flow for a blend of yoga and pilates. Afterwards, it won’t take long to stumble into boutiques like Alterior Motif, Signature on Hastings, and for the surfers, Noosa Longboards, for apparel and gifts that ooze a laid-back appeal. Or, you can join the locals at Noosa Farmers’ Market every Sunday from 7am to noon for fresh local produce and goods.
Find respite and partake in self-care practice by booking yourself in at the Aqua Day Spa for a facial, massage, or both (we won’t judge), before heading back to any of the incredible resorts and hotels to choose from located right on Hastings Street. Favourites include the Sheraton for villas and suites, the Mantra French Quarter for apartment-esque stays, or the Seahaven Noosa for those that want an ocean view.
A day on Hastings Street wouldn’t be complete without ending the night with a cocktail at Miss MoneyPenny’s to sit back, sip, and soak in the sounds of Noosa’s cruisy nightlife. Or head for fresh seafood or gourmet dining at restaurants like Ricky’s, Wasabi, and Sails where you can dine upon the shores of lapping waves. We dare say Hastings Street is meant to enjoy the finer things without the fuss, dripping in the Sunshine Coast’s incredible fare, accommodation, and natural beauty.
