Next stop is Hastings Street where you will enjoy 90 minutes’ free time to explore Hastings Street and Noosa Main Beach. You will have plenty of time to grab a coffee or browse the many shops along Hastings Street or take a walk to Noosa National Park.
Noosa Main Beach is one of the few beaches along Australia’s coastline facing north and is the best option for families or those who are not confident in the surf, as it is protected by the headland, has gentle waves and is patrolled year-round by surf lifesavers.

Noosa is one of the many jewels in the Sunshine Coast crown, and with stunning beaches, nature at every turn, and one of the most famous shopping streets in the region (Hastings Street), this is somewhere you simply have to visit. If you’re a lover of gastronomy, there are several top-quality restaurants in Noosa too, making it a foodie’s delight! Stuff yourself with delicious fare and walk it off along the main shopping street - go on, you know you want to!
The sunsets in Noosa are also some of the best around, in fact, they are rivalled by very few in the entire country. The Noosa National Park is home to an abundance of flora, fauna, and wildlife to explore, and the coastal path shows you some of it, with stunning views aplenty. Remember your camera for this one!
Within all of this, Noosa has that typically laid-back, surfer vibe that this part of Australia is so famously known for. Friendly, welcoming people are at every turn, and when it comes to showing you the best of Noosa, you’ll have a queue of people offering their services. Of course, your driver is also an expert in the area, and if you want to know anything, ask away!
Regardless of the month of the year, Noosa bathes in sunshine, and even when it’s apparently winter everywhere else, Noosa doesn’t know what that word means!
