Five Things To Do On A Rainy Day In Noosa
Picture this: you’re on holiday with your loved ones, basking in the glorious sunshine, when you see some ominous grey clouds looming in the distance. Although the Sunshine Coast is famous for its brilliant blue skies and pristine beaches, the hot and humid Queensland summer can also bring the occasional bout of wet weather.
Luckily, there is plenty to do in Noosa and its surrounds, even when the rain is falling! Here are our top five wet-weather activities, all just minutes away from Seahaven Noosa.
1. Go shopping
Step out of your Seahaven Noosa accommodation and straight onto Hastings Street for some retail therapy. Noosa’s shopping hub features an eclectic mix of high-end stores and unique boutiques. When your feet need a break, the street is also dotted with fantastic cafes and bars. You might need an umbrella for the dash to and from stores, but it’s worth it!
2. Cook up a storm
The Noosa region is famous for its world-class restaurants and amazing local produce. Escape the rain and learn the secrets of local providores in one of the many cooking courses just a stone’s throw away from Noosa Heads! Experience the flavours of Asia with a cooking course at the world-renowned Spirit House, or learn to cook a range of cuisines at Life’s a Feast. Dairy lovers can also head for the hills and do a half day course at Easy Cheesy in Cooran, where you can learn to make soft cheeses and yoghurts! The best thing about all of these cooking courses is that you get to eat your delicious creations afterwards.
3. Noosa Regional Gallery
The iconic Noosa Regional Gallery is located in Tewantin, just a 10 minute drive from Noosa Heads. Over the summer, learn how to make your own Christmas bonbons with that perfect ‘crack’ sound in a DIY workshop, stroll through the current exhibitions from local, national and international artists, or complete your Christmas shopping at the gallery shop, where unique handmade products from local artisans are sold. Our tip: register for all workshops to avoid disappointment.
4. The Ginger Factory
The Ginger Factory in Yandina is one of the Sunshine Coast’s oldest and most popular attractions. With a wide range of things to see, do and taste, people of all ages will enjoy this one! Embark on educational tours and walks around the tranquil gardens, sit down to a scrumptious lunch at the Ginger Café, or treat yourself to a mouth-watering, freshly-made ice cream from The Ginger Factory’s own Ice Creamery. The kids will also love riding Morton the Ginger Train, who is still chugging around the park at 115 years old!
5. Stay in
When Seahaven Noosa has all the comforts of your own home, why would you want to be anywhere else? From stylish studios to luxurious apartments, Seahaven Noosa’s range of rooms are spacious and modern, perfect for couples, friends and families. Cook a delicious dinner in your apartment’s fully-equipped kitchen and curl up on the couch with your favourite movie playing.
