Arts & Culture

Noosa has a rich and diverse cultural heritage. The arts, music and drama scene all blend superbly with the stunning backdrop.

Discover the creative side of Noosa with artists and artisans including glass blowers, printers, painters, sculptors and ceramicists who showcase their work in local businesses, cafes, markets, book shops, restaurants and galleries. Or for something a little different, enjoy a master class or workshop run by a local artist.  

The main public art gallery is the Noosa Regional Gallery, which presents a strong collection of Australian contemporary art and local and touring exhibitions. Discover the fascinating history of the region at the Noosa Museum located in the picturesque hinterland town of Pomona, just 25 minutes from Noosa Heads.

Be entertained by Noosa’s musicians and performers at local venues and restaurants, free community concerts, at annual festivals and Pomona’s historic cinema.

Noosa Alive! is an annual event in July which celebrates local talent and well known and emerging talent from all over Australia. It’s 10 days of arts, literature, dance, drama, music, food and fun. The Noosa Jazz Party has the town swinging in September each year with the sounds of jazz ringing throughout restaurants, cafes, venues and parks.

Walk and cruise Noosa in winter

​Marco! … Polo! Usually the sound of summer in Australia. I’m overlooking the pool at Mantra French Quarter Noosa with a glass of Lanson in hand and it is supposedly winter. Don’t tell the kids. Perhaps winter never comes to Noosa...

Close encounters with whales

Close encounters with whales


Just how close to a humpback whale would you feel comfortable being? Watching the majesty of humpbacks as they travel through the warm waters off Noosa on their annual migration north is an unforgettable sight – their playful tail slaps, breaches, sprays and fin ‘waves’ seem even more incredible when you consider their size … around 15m in length and weighing more than 35 tonnes!
