THE recuperative power of a weekend in Noosa never ceases to amaze.

Get the sand in your toes on the Noosa Heads beach or take a soothing walk through the national park and the cares of the workaday world are soon left far behind.

To really relax and get the best out of a visit to Noosa you do well to park the car on arrival and leave the keys in your room until you leave.

That's why staying along famous Hastings St is the way to go if you can.

Seahaven Noosa, with 68 rooms, is right on the beach front and is the perfect base.

The beauty of the beach here is the fact that options abound.

Main beach is the place to people-watch and enjoy the sunshine, while keeping restaurants and bars close at hand.

But within minutes, a walk through Noosa National Park opens up a vista that draws visitors from all over the globe.

Secluded beaches abound, and at any moment the desire for a quick dip or a surf can be satisfied.

Take the opportunity to spot dolphins out in Laguna Bay or koalas in the tall timber.

A leisurely stroll along Hastings St offers a plethora of dining and shopping options for all tastes.

Couples and families are well catered for.

An ice cream at famous Massimos is a good place to start, then lunch at the Noosa Heads Surf Club where seafood is fresh and the view from the balcony is a perfect way to whet the appetite for a lazy afternoon on the beach.

Once getting your fill of the sunshine, if a gourmet pizza takes your fancy try Zachary's Gourmet Pizza Bar and Restaurant in the Seahaven resort complex.

Season Restaurant, also in Hastings St, has a menu that showcases the freshest local Noosa produce and innovative dishes in the ultimate beachfront dining experience.

For those wanting to work up an appetite why not hire a bike and ride around to the Noosa River for lunch at Sirocco Noosa?

Sample the exotic flavours, aromas and colours of North Africa and the Mediterranean rim - all the while taking in water views of river life.

It was Noosa that drew the best chefs from around Australia and the world to take Queensland to another level.

One of the reasons for that is the region's diverse and fresh produce, which can be sampled at Noosa Farmers Markets in Noosaville on Sunday.

Stalls of all kinds are on show - from fresh organic produce, freshly squeezed lime drinks, sumptuous marinades and aromatic skin care products.
