There are too many places to list along the stunning foreshore of the Noosa River, but one things for certain, if you prefer the sister to Hastings Street, then Gympie Terrace offers many sacred spaces for your delightful Noosa wedding. A street filled with some of the best cafes and eateries in Australia all offering some of the best views in Australia as well. The Noosa river is forever interesting, and really does offer something different for everyone whilst keeping the vibe relaxed, elegant and still as stylish as ever. Wheelchair friendly.
A stunning grassy plateau that sits on the sand dunes of Noosa Main Beach, located just off the boardwalk. Recommended for it's intimate and private treed setting, with a backdrop of the beach. 35m from the car park. Wheelchair friendly.
A sweeping view facing north west of Noosa, with sights over Laguna Bay, the Noosa River and the Blackall Ranges. It's a short 2 minute drive from Hastings Street, through the rainforest where you pop out to a clearing that is large enough still for an intimate ceremony on a concrete or grassy platform.

Perhaps mountains are your thing and a 360 degree view is just what your chasing. The lookout at Mount Tinbeerwah only takes an easy 5 to 10mins walk from the car park and is 236m above sea level, so as you can imagine the viewing platform is truly sensational. Located only 15 minutes from Hastings Street, it's a short drive and certainly worth every bit of the effort. When your in Noosa next, check it out! Not wheelchair friendly.
The western end of Hastings Street offers a beautiful parkland with fig trees, a public jetty, a small sand beach with the calm waters of the Noosa River lapping on it's shores.

Considering a beach just for you in an intimate sandy cove that is surrounded by pandanus palms, beach boulders and rock walls? Then Little Cove may tantalise your taste buds. It's located approx. 300m from Hastings Street east bound towards the National Park, and has limited parking areas so try Nationals first. There are stairs that lead down to the beach from the National Park boardwalk. Wedding ceremonies can only occur on low tide as the beach disappears on high tide. Packages that include full ceremony styling décor can not be arranged at Little Cove, however minimal décor can be arranged. Although there are some restrictions, Little Cove really is a special spot with an incredible outlook.
Perfect if your considering the open beaches (5mins from Hastings Street), and the perfect space for an intimate natural ceremony. There is a section along Sunrise Beach which offers a dog off leash zone, should you wish your dogs to be your ring bearers. Easy parking, 30m from car park, some stairs and not wheelchair friendly.
Wet Weather Options:
As you know there are many things we have control over in life, and some we don't. The weather is one of them. As much as we intend for the weather to be fine on your day, things can turn at the last minute and surprise us all. So to ensure all areas are covered off, and no one is left in surprise or disappointment on your wedding day, we have come up with a few ideas to help alleviate any wet weather concerns. Firstly, be flexible - there may be a window of opportunity either before your designated time or after when the wedding could take place - we can all closely watch the BOM radar and be ready to go when the coast is clear. Your penthouse or accommodation might offer a lovely balcony with a view and could also be a suitable location. The restaurant you have picked to share your celebration at may offer their facilities for the ceremony. The Lions Park on Gympie Terrace offers a huge sheltered area with a backdrop of the Noosa River. Quite suitable for small wedding events. For more intimate elopements, Noosa Woods offers a few covered shelter areas also. The Rumba Bar, below Sails Restaurant is an intimate and divine space that could be arranged for your ceremony, or perhaps the Beach Club on Hastings showcases class and style in a relaxed environment. The Sheraton Sunset Bar has a lovely outlook, is fairly quiet weekdays and is delightful as a wet weather venue. All you need to know is that we have thought about your wedding, the weather, contingency plans and that we will always have you covered - no matter what. In all the years I have been performing weddings in Noosa as a Celebrant, 87% of weddings go ahead outdoors and 13% end up using their wet weather back up option. The odds are certainly in your favour.
