Hop To It in Hastings Street

Our iconic shopping and dining precinct loves the buzz of a busy holiday period. Hastings Street is always pulsing with happy visitors and locals soaking up the good vibes and sharing fun and laughter. This season, Hastings Street shop owners have added a little extra sparkle and fun with a treasure hunt for young and old, as Carlie Wacker discovers. 

There is so much to love about Hastings Street, on and off the beach. During the holiday season it’s a great reminder for locals that we truly live in the most fabulous place in the world and that’s why people love to visit. 

I always find it inspiring to see the joy on our visitors’ faces, and it encourages me to spend more time exploring our very cool backyard. 

Our cosmopolitan shopping strip is adjacent to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. 

We can walk the national park, take our fur babies to the designated dog beach at the spit, grab an ice cream from the The Spit Van wrapped in local art by Mitchell English or grab picnic essentials from MilkBar Grocer.

The bustling street is always changing and we are super excited for new stores opening soon including Diamonds of Distinction and Mecca! 

The iconic fashion boutique Alterior Motif has had a refit, JOJO Noosa is always spilling over with the best boho fashion finds; and we have some of the quirkiest, most colourful and artistic shops to explore like Uncle George, Sayers Home and Lamington. 

Noosa Beach House is bringing in exciting new flavours led by Executive Chef George Francisco; and we are eagerly awaiting the reopening of Netanya Noosa.

We’re still recovering after ten days of pure stoke enjoying the Noosa Festival of Surfing from the Beach Bar! 

Hastings Street has it all and is always INspiring – no wonder we chose it for our autumn fashion shoot (see page 94).
