Hastings Street runs parallel to Main Beach at Noosa and is a charming tree lined promenade of accommodation, boutiques, fine dining, shops and other services. Like any world class destination, Hastings Street has been developed with environmental considerations in mind - the height limit is just 3 storeys and the street integrates seamlessly into the natural beauty surrounding it.
Hastings Street offers everything both holiday makers and locals could desire, and all within short walking distance. Accommodation comprises both beachfront and non-beachfront apartments in both small and large complexes to suit all budgets.
Traditionally, apartments in Hastings Street, Noosa, attain very high occupancy rates as many people wish to be in the "heart of the action". Beachfront apartments command some of the best ocean views in the whole of Australia. The panorama from many apartments stretches from the Noosa National Park headland where surfing waves wrap around into Laguna Bay, all the way to the Noosa North Shore and beyond to the adventure playground of Double Island Point. Many non-beachfront apartments overlook the Noosa River as it meanders its way calmly behind Hastings Street.
Shopping on Hastings Street is second to none and not many visitors can resist taking a peek into the many designer boutiques, jewellery shops, kids clothing shops, book shops and myriad of other choices for that perfect gift or well-deserved self-indulgence.

After a day at the beach, on the Noosa River or just soaking up the atmosphere of Hastings Street, visitors are almost spoilt for choice when it comes around to the evening meal. Over 15 restaurants are present along the street and beachfront - all with long standing reputations for outstanding service and the best cuisine from near and far. Beachfront restaurants prove very popular throughout the day due to the unparalleled views across Laguna Bay. And, as you would expect from a seaside resort, the freshest seafood is the speciality on many menus.
Hastings Street is surrounded by natural beauty on all sides. To one side, Noosa Main Beach runs the length of the street. It is a true north facing sandy beach stretching from the rocky outcrop of First Point to the mouth of the Noosa River. At the far end of the street is a protected area of bushland larger in area than Hastings Street itself, called "The Woods". This area is heavily wooded with native trees and is a prime habitat for birds and of course the inimitable native bush turkeys, which often make the short trip into Hastings Street! "The Woods" is also a prime picnic and family barbeque spot. On the opposite side to the beach, Hastings Street is bordered by the pristine Noosa River as it ambles through the residential community of Noosa Sound. And finally, the "Paris" end of Hastings Street, where alfresco dining abounds, is abutted by the natural beauty of Little Cove - a small community amongst the natural gum trees that seamlessly blends into the Noosa National Park. It is easy to see why Noosa and Hastings Street in particular is a unique and beautiful place.
As you can imagine, the Hastings Street property market is extremely limited in stock and very tightly held.
