Things to do in Noosa, Sunshine Coast, QLD

We were in Noosa again, and I never published this post from last time…whoops!

Noosa is such an amazing place, every time we go we find more things to do – it never gets boring.

We definitely try to cram most of these things in to our diary while we are up there.

Big loop walk – this is a goodie! When we come over from NZ we often wake up at some ridiculous hour (like 4/5am) so it can be great to bust this out before breakfast places open. Go either way you want around the loop. There is a great butt blasting hill – one way is short sharp and sweet, the other way is a gradual burn creator! Take your pick.

Ps if you are with a stroller, it’s great walking/running as its all smooth paving.

Aquatic centre – perfect for really hot Noosa days when you don’t want to be in the sun. The toddler area is covered, has gradual sweeping entry and the facilities are clean.  


Noosa Farmers Market

Full of the most amazing fresh produce and local artisan products. The Noosa Farmers Market, is held EVERY Sunday at The Noosa Australian Football Club on Weyba Road, Noosaville between 7am and 12pm. We often fly in from New Zealand on a Saturday and head straight to the market on a Sunday…it is just devine!

Spirit House restaurant & cooking school – OMG, not to be missed!!! Even for the most disconcerting foodie. Situated in Yandina (so a bit of a drive), I would recommend going during the day so you can experience the beautiful pond side view/atmosphere.  Do bring bug spray. We are yet to do a cooking class but they look amazing. 
Hastings street on the beachfront. Some favourite places to eat and drink include

  • Rococo for dinner with its pianist, beautiful alfresco dining and atmosphere. A real treat.
  • Bistro C for lunch, with its great view of the waves and exquisite seafood.
  • Sheraton bar for a pre-dinner drink. We call it the “birdcage”, you will see why!

Main Beach Noosa – have a go on a Stand up paddle board, surfing, boogie boarding. Pop up to Hastings St for a Boost Juice or better yet, pop up to the Surf Club for Sunday afternoon drinks and live music. Comes with a great view if the surf is up! This Easter weekend the water has been so amazing and warm. 

Grind – breakfast is the best. “The healthy grind”…salmon, avocado, rocket…my mouth is watering thinking about it. Opens at 6am, which is great for early rising kiwis. Located on Gympie Terrace, Noosaville 

Boat hire – take a boat up the river to the lakes. Start at Noosaville.

Canteen cafe – if you are doing the big loop walk, stop in and have a coffee at the Canteen Cafe at the Junction. They have cute little shakes in milk bottles. The food is clean and yummy!

Noosa Yoga Centre – Noosa Junction. Pick your class well – these guys are experts and will work you. But it’s beautiful yoga. I particularly enjoy the class with the wall ropes and props, it’s unlike anything in NZ.

Big W @ Noosa Civic for if you need anything

The Coffee Bean – exquisite coffee. Noosa junction.

Noosa cold press juice – yum! Hastings street.

Packed a picnic of drinks and nibbles and sat at Gympie Terrace by the river around 3.30pm.
