Local historian, artist and author of ‘Hastings St, Stories from Noosa’s Past’, Emma Freeman, will take you on a fascinating and charming stroll around Hastings St.

We will view the disused coal-mine site as well as the reclaimed land of Hays Inlet and then walk eastward along Hastings Street and Morwong Drive to the border of former Hacks Farm.

We will retrace our steps down Morwong Drive to the Main beach to view the beachfront buildings, rock wall and groins then on to the bar and The Woods area. Along Hastings Street we will compare the businesses of today with the homes and shops from the past.

At end of the walk, we will go to Halse Lodge for afternoon tea and have the opportunity of viewing the inside of this heritage building. Allow two and a half hours. Meet in the Lion's car park opposite Halse Lodge at 1pm
