Noosa Surf Life Saving Club – Surf and Turf

While the Surf Life Saving Club keep the swimmers safe. Upstairs at the restaurant sit on the deck overlooking the beach, to enjoy a bucket of prawns washed down with an icy cold beer. Other Australian pub classic like crumbed calamari, fish and chips or surf and turf (garlic prawns stacked on top of a steak – also known as reef and beef) on the lunch and dinner menu.

Relax while watching the sun set over the river on a warm afternoon drinking chilled wine or cocktails. You can choose a variety of dishes from the tapas menu or enjoy a bowl of spaghetti with the famous Noosa spanner crab, lemon, chili, garlic and parsley.

Royal Copenhagen Ice-cream

This place has been here since I was a kid, our favourite stop after a swim at the beach. The sweet smell of the freshly cooked waffle cones wafts down the street getting stronger as you approach the store. Flavours to try are maple and macadamia, mango, strawberry or devil’s chocolate.

  1. Noosa is a beautiful place, I love the walk along the main road along the coastline (that goes to the National Park?). Those prawns look divine!!! Have had those bucket of prawns in Cairns before, we don’t get them in SA like that…shame really.
