I’ve been visiting Noosa since I was a Melbourne schoolgirl escaping the winter cold
with my family. I’ve lost count of how many times I have been here, but one thing is
for sure, I never tire of coming back. But why? What is it about Noosa specifically?
If you have never been, Noosa Heads is a little seaside cove accessible by one road
with the Noosa National park at the end of the main street. It has the feel of being on the
French Riviera or Italian Riviera. There is a poise and class about this location that makes you
feel special when you visit.
The main thoroughfare, Hastings Street, has an elegant, little village feel,time and once you
arrive and park the car, you can forget about driving for the rest of your stay. When I’m on
holidays, sometimes it is nice to just park the car and park yourself.
Where to stay for me is anywhere on Hasting Street. It means everything worth visiting is
within walking distance. I’ve stayed in quite a few but my absolute favourite is Seahaven
Noosa Resort located on Hastings Street and backing onto the beach. A little out of the hustle
and bustle, (which can get crazy in peak season), but you are removed from the “day trippers”
and the crowds. It’s only a short walk down towards the Surf Club if you have young ones and
want to swim between the flags.
