Held on Weyba Road near the Noosa Arts Theatre each Sunday morning, the Noosa Farmers Markets are all about fresh produce.

Hastings Street

As the beachside shopping strip that made Noosa famous, Hastings Street at Noosa Heads offers a huge array of apparel and accessory stores, catering to any budget and occasion.

From boutiques to big names, Hastings Street serves up a smorgasbord of fashion options that includes swimwear, jewellery, menswear and women’s attire.

Amidst the bustling cafes and against the allure of Main Beach, this picturesque shopping strip is the perfect place to spend a day casually perusing all the style on offer.

Although the location might be exclusive, it’s a shopping destination where you are equally likely to pick up a one of a kind designer item or go-to wardrobe essential.

Eumundi Markets

Famous for its artisan culture, the Eumundi Markets have a major emphasis on fashion. This is the place where many local designers get their big break and create a loyal following.

As a result, the bustling and enduringly popular markets feature everything from children’s clothing to apparel, summer dresses, jewellery, hats, shoes and handbags, and chances are the stallholder you meet is the very person who designed and created the piece.

The Eumundi Markets are renowned as the biggest and best art and craft markets in Australia and have a culture of “make it, bake it, sew it, grow it”, meaning most of what’s available is hand-made and unique to the Noosa district.

The markets run from 8am to 2pm, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Gympie Terrace

Overlooking the Noosa River at Noosaville is the shopping strip of Gympie Terrace. It’s a place where the locals seek their quintessential Noosa fashion pieces, and the strip features everything from shoes to jewellery and men’s and women’s clothing.

Boutiques are the hallmark of this precinct, and they cater to every occasion – from a day at the beach to an evening sipping sunset cocktails on Hastings Street.

It’s also a great location to make a day of shopping, where you can relax at endless restaurants or cafes or stroll the waterfront between perusing the varied items on offer.

Noosa Junction

Noosa Heads might have the fashion reputation, but Noosa Junction features a wealth of fashion stores that cater to the trends. Like Gympie Terrace, Noosa Junction is home to a host of boutiques, many of which define the quintessential Noosa style.

From bamboo clothing to boardshorts and children’s wear, Noosa Junction is another fashion hotspot where the locals seek out their wardrobe essentials.
