Hastings Street - Noosa
Noosa's Hastings Street is champagne territory, although a chardonnay and even a 'crownie' doesn't look out of place.
Noosa is still regularly rated as one of Australia's most favoured getaway destinations. It's stylishly inspiring, yet so totally laid back.
Such is its attractiveness that Queenslanders will drive for nearly two hours from suburban Brisbane just to take coffee.
On weekends, nearly every table has been taken and there's always a good mix of locals amongst the visitors who have been successful in commandeering a table. This is one of those streets in which a cup of coffee and a glass or two of water can literally be made to last for several hours.
Hastings Street is home to the best in boutiques, international standard resort hotels and classy restaurants, yet it's still possible to rent a unit at a price that doesn't destroy the credit card, 'eat out' on a hamburger, and at certain times of the year, snap up fashion at heavily discounted prices.
Others choose to stay in the luxury of their resort property, selecting a premium spot around the swimming pool, or soaking up the Queensland sun on the beach.
At dusk, each of the resorts takes on a new mantle: the lights dance across the pools, the bars alive with music and laughter, and Hastings Street welcomes its evening clientele - dressed 'smart-casual' as they make their way to dinner. They have the joy of selecting from a myriad of restaurants including those that come on high recommendation, such as Lindoni's, Jaspers, Berardo's and Bistro C.
A day soon passes, and at Noosa, each day just happens to be even better than the day before. The experiences continue to mount, matched only by the pleasures that accompany.

Noosa is full of culinary delights from high end restaurants to delightfuly cheap and cheerful take away shops.

There's also ice cream shops galore but anyone in the know will tell you the only place to eat icey delights is Massimo's. Don't be put off by the flocks of people, it is worth the wait! Check out all the other Noosa restaurants.
Bistro C has been a favourite for many years and it's no wonder why when the place is completely laidback and offers gorgeous meals from breakfast to dinner with a view overlooking Laguna Bay. The menu is thoughtful and uses only the freshest of local ingredients. Come for breakfast and stay for a cocktail at sunset!
Season is another seasoned favourite as it sets overlooking Noosa's Main Beach and Laguna Bay. This lovely beachfront restaurant is open 7 days a week from breakfast through to lunch. It is relaxed fine dining at its best as it uses Noosa's wonderful fresh produce and fantastic service.
Noosa Surf Club and Restaurant sits on prime real estate nestled between Hastings Street and Laguna Bay with a beautiful view of the National Park. Breakfast is served on the deck from 8am to 11am and is a great way to kickstart your day. The dining experience is laid back but full of fantastic views. We think the famous bucket of prawns served with a nice gold beer is the perfect Summer's day lunch.
