Festive Season in Noosa 2017

Well, summer has well and truly hit the Sunshine Coast and in true festive spirit, the sound of clinking champagne glasses fills the air. We’ve hit the ground running entering high season in Noosa, with that relaxed holiday vibe beaming from everyone in sight, although the locals will be quick to tell you that popular Hastings Street feels that way all year round. It’s the land of scorching days and balmy nights, afternoon BBQ’s and sunset beach walks.. and though we may not be able to guarantee you a parking space we can guarantee that Noosa is a holiday goers dream.

The Sunny Coast offers a vast array of activities and adventures for you and your family; from kayaking in the Noosaville river to roaming the eclectic Eumundi Markets, shopping on Hastings St or taking your 4WD to double Island.. there is something to excite and entice every walk of life.

Now, we all know that the holiday period comes with a list as long as Santa’s beard of things to organise, plan and pay for, but rest assured that when it comes to the perfect holiday house, we have you covered.

Let us worry about your accommodation so that you can worry about sunburn and happy hour cocktails.

Cheers everyone!

Noosa Beer

Looking for an excuse to visit Noosa on the Sunshine Coast and love BEER!   The Sunshine Coast is developing a huge following on the Craft Beer Culture Scene.


The most popular at this time is the Broughaha in Maleny.

Not only does it serve beer but great coffee and food as well.  Reservations are a must, especially on the weekend.  A tasting card will cost you $30 but well worth the trip.


The original Bonsai Brewhouse in sleepy Pomona.  This brewhouse is located in a rustic building with a veranda lined with Bonsai.  Checkout their opening times on their facebook page.


Eumundi has its own Brewery combined in the ImperialHotel.   Enjoy a trip to the local market and combine a cooling pale ale!


A trip to Cooroy is a must to visit the Copperhead Restaurant & Brewery.  Here beer and food (high end pub food) are plentiful.  This is purpose built building with loads of timber and chandeliers.

Again reservations are a must on the weekends.


A brewhouse is currently under construction on Rene Street in Noosa.  Keep you posted on that!

I would be happy to raise a glass of bubbly or two for all the hard work the athletes have had to endure.

Wanting to Come to Noosa?

Wanting to come to Noosa but not sure where you would like to stay. We all know the glamorous Hasting street where you can be wining and dining next to pop stars.. Or casually strolling down Main Beach in your thongs licking ice cream.. but where to next?


To the south of Main Beach you will find Little Cove. An undulating woody hill area populated with many units and the entrance to the gateway of the Noosa National Park to Hells Gate. There are hidden beaches and rock pools to explore along this stunning cliff face.


Before reaching Noosa Junction further to the south west home of the backpackers, we have a range of budget conscious properties along Noosa Hill. Many of these properties have local bus stops at your front door.


To the west before Noosaville is Noosa Sound. Tranquility rains supreme as you breeze along the canals crossing over the calm waters off the Noosa River. This area abounds with luxury homes and private docks, as well as award winning hatted restaurants.


Properties in Noosaville have access to the Noosa river and many water sport options as wells as Gympie Terrace with a wide array of delicious restaurants and cafes. This area has many pet friendly options.


Noosa Waters has luxury waterfront properties and is the best viewing spot for events like the Noosa Christmas boats light up event. This area is conveniently located in the middle of Noosa close the the Civic Shopping Centre, the Noosa Junction. 

Noosa Alive

Noosa has a great reputation for delivering some of the most iconic events in Australia and recently Rococo Restaurant, located in the heart of Hasting Street, did not disappoint being a leading host for ‘Noosa Alive’, with their magnificent marquis erected right on Noosa’s Main Beach.

Holiday Guests and local residents who were lucky enough to purchase tickets for events during ‘Noosa Alive’ experienced a great weekend, full of Latino music, amazing food and, of course, the constant flow of champagne.

Keep an eye out again for next year if you were not lucky enough to experience this time around.

Noosa's Most Famous Mountain.

Noosa's Most Famous Mountain.

Have you ever driven around Noosa or been down on the Noosa River or perhaps playing with your pets at Noosa Dog Beach and looked at that ever present pointy mountain over to the west?

Well if you have ever wondered what it’s called, that is Mount Cooroy, and it’s a landmark for us Noosa locals. Whenever we see it, we know home is not far away. My favourite place to Mount Cooroy is from Noosa River or Noosa Spit/Noosa Dog Beach. It’s a beautiful upside down conical shaped monolith that reaches 438 m high and watches over us.

Access is not available all year, except in October, every year it is opened up for public access for Cooroy Mountain Festival, unless you are lucky to know some of the owners of the farmland around Mount Cooroy.

The name was originally called Mount Coorooey, from the Aboriginal word for possum, Kurui. Politically correctly;  Kuri’bigal’ba is the indigenous name from the now extinct locals from this area, Kabi.

So if you are after one of THE best views in the Noosa region then start training and get fit and walk Mt Cooroy.

Calling All Golfers

Calling all Golfers 

There are four golf courses in Noosa with at least another dozen within a 45 minute drive from Noosa. The four are very different style courses; the Noosa Par3 course, the private Noosa Valley Golf near Doonan, the Tewantin-Noosa public course in Tewantin and the Noosa Springs resort club.

The largest and oldest club in Noosa is the Tewantin-Noosa course. The course is normally pretty busy so bookings are necessary most of the time. The website has all the details, check out they have a great pro shop and a clubhouse with a bar and bistro. There is a free practice range but of course you’ll have to bring your own balls. The course itself is picturesque with an abundance of bird life and kangaroos.

If you want to fit in with the locals they have welcoming comps just about every day. You may need to have a Golf Link handicap to join in but they normally have a few single openings. Give the pro shop a call the day before or even on the day.

Noosa Springs resort is the closest to the tourist areas in Noosa Heads. The springs have all the amenities you would expect at a resort club. Their website has all the info you’ll need. They have a great practice range that is open some nights. If you buy a bucket of balls make sure you take advantage of a great practice.

While reasonably challenging the course is ‘manicured’ as long as you stay on the fairways and greens. The course is a lot less forgiving than Tewantin. If you’re very far off the fairway you’re probably going to take a drop. You don’t want to be too ambitious in your search for missing balls given the hidden dangers lurking in the dense rough. There are a few hills but chances are you’ll be driving an electric cart.


Happy Golfing

Don’t forget to take advantage of the Day Spa in Noosa Springs.

Something to do in Noosa


Looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend? There are so many kid friendly activities in Noosa such as fishing, water sports, surfing, and hiking. Now is such a beautiful time of year, so why not take advantage of this beautiful weather Noosa has to offer and go exploring through the Noosa National Park or hire a boat and take the family out fishing.


Noosa National Park is situated at the end of Hastings Street and features amazing coastal scenery and is the home to many national animals. The kids will have a great time exploring and keeping an eye out for lizards and birds. You never know you might even spot a koala or two. If you look out to the ocean you might see some dolphins swimming up the coastline. From August through to November you might see pods of whales frolicking as they make their way up Queensland’s coastline. You can explore on your own or book a tour with one of the eco-tour companies. Once you have finished why not hire a tinnie for an hour or so and take the kids out fishing and see if they can catch their own dinner. You can cruise through Noosa River up Hastings Street and take in the surrounds. What an amazing way to spend your day in Noosa.
