Day One

You made it! Cruise along the coastline until you arrive at the luxe Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort. Yep, you’ll be crashing here for the next three nights, you lucky thing! Ease into holiday mode with cocktails by the pool, before strolling down Hastings Street until you reach Locale. These guys are pros at Italian cuisine and the dimly lit restaurant is all kinds of stunning.

Day Two

Start the weekend with a walk through Noosa National Park followed by a Sri Lankan-inspired breakfast created by Peter Kuruvita at Sofitel’s in-house restaurant, Noosa Beach House. Eating amazing food is one thing, but cooking it is a whole different ball game, so next you’ll be heading to The Cooking School Noosa (owned by Wasabi, one of Queensland’s best restaurants) to spend the day learning tips, tricks and techniques, that’ll have you whipping up Japanese, French or another delicious cuisine depending on the week. After a day in the kitchen, we think you deserve a break—so sunset cocktails and a stunning waterfront dining experience at Noosa Boathouse is just what The Urban List doctor ordered.

Day Three

Rise and shine! It’s your last full day on the Sunshine Coast. Do as the locals do and make a beeline for Noosa Farmers Markets. Here, you can taste local cheeses, condiments, fresh produce, and our favourite part, knock back a street food breakfast.

The day is still young, so you’ll be jumping on the road and heading for the lush Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Start with a wander through Montville, before making your way to Kondalilla Falls for a freshwater swim in the rock pools. Next up, is lunch at The Long Apron at Spicers Clovelly. This two-hatted restaurant in Montville is a must for any real foodie. Save room for dessert and jot Maleny Food Co. into your GPS, your gelato-loving stomach will thank you for it.

Day Four

After a sleep in, follow the boardwalk to Bistro C and enjoy a beachfront breakfast while picking out where you’re going to lay your towel in approximately 34 minutes. You’ll be heading to said sandy spot and soaking up the sun for the rest of the morning. Now, a holiday isn’t a holiday without a spot of shopping, agreed? So, wander back to the Sofitel via the likes of Noosa Longboards, Alterior Motif and, if you want to take home some local foodie supplies as a memento, Providore On Hastings. Onto the hard part—saying goodbye to your sleek pad. Insert sad face here. Pop over to the iconic Noosa Surf Club for a frosty glass of drown-your-sorrows sauv and a bucket of Mooloolaba prawns, while you soak up those postcard views one last time.
