There are plenty of places to celebrate…

…Christmas and New Year’s in Noosa!

While some restaurants are closed for Christmas and New Year’s holidays, some locations have made a tradition to stay open on these holidays, however pre-bookings are recommended.

On Hastings Street in Noosa Heads, Rococo Restaurant is one of many who are open with a special menu for both lunch and dinner on Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Along Main Beach, Boardwalk Bistro is holding a special Christmas lunch and New Year’s Cocktail Party, and right next door you can sail into New Year’s Eve with Bistro C’s Island Lux themed event. Further along the street, Miss Moneypenny’s is holding a Gala Ball Glitter Dinner from 6 pm, followed by a Discotheque from 8 pm.

In Noosaville, Noosa Waterfront Restaurant is holding their annual Masquerade on New Year’s Eve with live music. Noosa Boathouse will serve four course lunches from 11 am to 3 pm on Christmas Day and for dinner, the boathouse will have a seafood buffet in the River Room. On New Year’s Day, their Little Boaty Coffee Bar will be open from 6 am, but the Restaurant and Sunset Bar will be closed.

At Noosa Marina, several restaurants are offering special courses and hours for the holidays. Pier 11 will be open with a 5-course menu on Christmas Day, and will host an event with a view of the Noosa Marina laser light show on New Year’s Eve, beginning at 9.15 pm, with a 4-course menu as well. Riverdeck is also open from noon to 4 pm, serving a 3-course lunch, and is open from 11.30 am to 3 pm on New Year’s Day. For more information on local holiday hours, visit the Noosa Holiday Guide

To be just a ferry ride away from all the action, check out Noosa Quays, a local resort tucked away on its own private beach. Access your favourite locations via water taxi or even a short walk in the beautiful weather, and return to beautiful oversized balconies overlooking the Noosa Sound. With all but one apartment being direct waterfront, it’s the perfect location to vacation with the whole family in luxury, or get away for a romantic escape surrounded by tropical gardens and luxurious amenities such as the sauna and swimming pool.
