We stayed for two nights in late March for the first time and everything about this place went beyond our expectations , especially the staff on greeting and throughout were always willing to offer assistance and go out of their way to help, the place is immaculate and very well managed by the onsite manager . This is all on top of the beautiful rooms , location and facilities , I highly recommend . - Amy
A Tingirana Holiday Experience
Live music in Noosa
It’s July and Noosa is bustling with artistic types of just about every persuasion as part of the NoosaAlive! festival. That’s not to say Hastings St is a cultural desert for the rest of the year- far from it. Music can be found along this iconic strip on every night of the week, and if you’re willing to explore further than a few hundred metres from Tingirana’s front door, you’ll be treated to a host of international acts and local treasures.
Close by, Miss Moneypenny’s explores cool Ibiza DJ beats late into Saturday night and Sunday afternoons, complemented perfectly with delicious mod-Aus menus, local gins bespoke and modern cocktails. The cavernous interior of Moneypenny’s is built for a slow shoulder wiggle in time to seriously sexy music.
Take a stroll towards the National Park end of Hastings St on any afternoon, and you’re bound to come across local musicians strumming away: Noosa Beach House, Aromas and Piccolinos have regular acoustic sessions. All three are well suited to families. Rococo Bistro has resident artists playing over most weekends, ranging from classical to jazz and interspersed with the odd bit of Daft Punk.
Café Le Monde is another cool kid on the block, with acoustic and DJ sessions scheduled over several nights each week. During the day, coming straight off the beach for a Frosé and enjoying the coastal vibe is a holiday must, but once the lights go down, things get serious. On Saturdays, you can expect quality house music till late, Thursdays feature live musicians and Mondays are a mix of both.
For more bass of the stringed kind, the Noosa Surf Life Saving Club is always good for a pub rock session over the weekends.
Over the hill, the Noosa Junction is becoming something of a cultural wonderland for the locals and visitors alike, with a growing music and entertainment. Friday nights play host to a number of quality musicians across several bars and restaurants. Ze Pickle, Mr Drifter, Muse and the Cornerstone have regular gigs. Once you’ve booked your accommodation at Tingirana, it’s also worthwhile checking out The J, Noosa’s premier event space, for anything from film screenings to comedy acts, plays and musicians.
Another fabulous option for some hip shaking tunes, is to book a spot on the MV Catalina. Choose from a cool afternoon cruise or watch the lights of the river dance in time. With bites to eat included in the ticket, gorgeous cocktails, a beautiful coastal aesthetic and a luxe atmosphere, this is a fantastic way to see a little more of Noosa to a sophisticated soundtrack. MV Catalina caters to 18+ events only.
Further afield, the Imperial Hotel in Eumundi offers regular gigs throughout the week. For a truly family friendly outing, every Sunday on the grass behind the floating Boathouse on Gympie Terrace, musicians gather for some toe tapping tunes. The children play at the water’s edge, the sun slowly dips and the good times are long! Bring a few supplies for a lovely, low-key afternoon and don’t worry about who’s driving: you can catch a Noosa Ferry here from Hastings St.
