What to do
Noosa is full of amazing restaurants with locally sourced, fresh produce but, there’s a few iconic Noosa eats that we reckon you need to put on your list next time you visit Noosa.
Start your day at The Ginger Factory where you’ll find vibrant colours and scents of a subtropical garden, winding garden paths, delicious tastes, an old-world charm and of course, ginger! Treat yourself to some ginger scones and ginger ice cream!
Our tip: Jump aboard Moreton, their 100-year-old former cane train for a fun trip through the grounds and rainforest as you learn about this unique attraction!
For lunch, head directly to Betty’s Burgers and Concrete Co, where you will find the most famed burger joint in Noosa! Originated on Hastings Street in Noosa Heads and now a loved chain across Australia. Choose from a mouth-watering burger, crispy fries, onion rings and more!
Our tip: Following your burger, order one of Betty’s concretes – they’re a house-made frozen custard ice cream dessert that you just have to try!
Spend your afternoon strolling through Noosa National Park where you’ll work off your burger and work up the appetite for your next iconic Noosa eat! If you’re feeling a little sluggish, you can stop wherever you like or, if you’re a little more energetic head all the way to Hells Gates where you’ll find the most incredible place to rest your feet.
Just in time for sunset, make a bee-line for Nosh Express. Choose from gourmet salads, burgers or the beach-side favourite, fish, chips and seafood. Nosh Express pride themselves on their fresh, locally sourced, healthy takeaway and, they have a range of gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options!
Our tip: Grab your fish and chips (or something a bit lighter on the hips 😉 ) and head a few metres north to Noosa Main Beach just in time for sunset.
Once you’ve eaten yourself into a food coma, head back to The Rise Noosa to complete your break with a true, tropical Noosa vibe. The Rise is in the perfect position, just 400m from Hastings Street and Noosa Main Beach, and a short walk to Noosa Junction in the other direction – you’ll have the best of both worlds! The Rise boasts two- or three-bedroom apartments and penthouses, all impeccably presented and ready for you to enjoy in complete luxury!
