Famous for Food

The word ‘Noosa’ conjures images of perfect surf breaks, golden sand beaches and pristine ocean waters, but when the sun goes down this exclusive resort town turns its thoughts to matters culinary…

Noosa’s particular blend of beachside beauty and resort town cool has inspired generations of hospitality professionals, with a dining scene today that caters for any imaginable taste or preference.  Whether you’re looking  for the culinary mastery of a Michelin-starred veteran or the daring and creativity of one of the many new kids on the block, restaurants ranging from boutique fish and chipperies all the way to international standard resort dining house some of the country’s leading chefs.

It’s easy to see what brings top chefs to the region – with access to premium fresh seafood, a ‘paddock to plate’ culture driven by the unspoilt Hinterland farmlands and a sophisticated tourist industry that expects only the best, the local hospitality scene has for decades proven an irresistible drawcard

About Noosa

In recent years the addition of craft breweries and distilleries has seen the dining scene expand from the beach strip into industrial estates and hinterland towns, showcasing an entirely new era of creativity and uniquely Noosa offerings.  The craft brewing space has avoided the corporate buy-outs that has genericised offerings in so many other places, instead being characterised by small-batch drops served in rustic country buildings, shining industrial spaces, beer gardens and cellar doors.

For students of hospitality, the diversity of dining experiences in Noosa serves as both an inspiration and a challenge, as Culinary Academy students find themselves driven to take their place among the very best.
