We recently took a mini winter break away in Noosa, Queensland, Australia. It was so nice to have a peek at some sunny weather before it arrives here in Melbourne, come and take a look.

We stayed at On The Beach Noosa , an exclusive luxury beachfront apartment in Noosa on Laguna Bay, and we loved it. It really was the perfect location in cosmopolitan Hastings Street amongst the boutique shops and award winning restaurants.

All of their apartments at On The Beach Noosa are cleverly designed to take advantage of the stunning beach and ocean views and each apartment features a private balcony with a spa, and two sun lounges for relaxing in by the sea.

The apartment is decorated with a modern coastal vibe. Sheer curtains frame the large glass doors leading out to the balcony with stunning coastal views.

Everything you need is in the apartment, including a bottle of champagne and a selection of breakfast pastries and all the essentials for a breakfast in, on the balcony.

We dined at two beautiful restaurants, Rickys River Bar and Restaurant and Locale.

We had great meals at both of these restaurants and we will definately be dining there on our next visit to Noosa.

A visit to Signature On Hastings is always on my list when I’m in Noosa, they have so many pretty things for the home.

Signature on Hastings is the creation of Interior Designer Gail Hinkley, who opened the store in 1990. Gail also runs an Interior Design service. You can read more about her beautiful coastal designs here.

Noosa was the perfect mini break from winter down here in Melbourne, with shopping, dining and walks on the beach. There are so many other things to do in Noosa, you can view Visit Noosa for some more ideas.
