The aptly named On The Beach Noosa Resort sits seconds away from the beach and Hastings Street and its famous shops and restaurants. Couples in particular rate this resort for its alfresco dining options, private balconies and in-suite spa facilities.
Another fantastically located luxury resort is Netanya, where private chefs and in-room spa treatments can be arranged.
If you're travelling with little ones, Seahaven Resort has one-, two- and three-bedroom, self-catered apartments, perfect for large groups. Better still, you'll be a short walk from both the beach and Noosa Woods, where hiking, botanical gardens and surf schools await.

Alternate Noosa accommodation options
Properties cost an average of $150 a night in Noosa (although we found some for as cheap as $70 too) and often provide cosier surroundings and a fully equipped kitchen. That means you can enjoy a home-cooked meal during your stay.
Those taking in the east coast by road can stop at one of Noosa's well-equipped RV parks. Now, there aren't any within the town itself. However, there are options such as Noosa Caravan Park that sit within an easy drive of the Everglades and the northern beaches.
