About Noosa Mayfiesta...


It's the secret locals have always known - Noosa in May is simply spectacular and what better way to experience it when Noosa goes on sale for the very first time.

In 2008 Noosa's Mayfiesta campaign will deliver a range of hot deals to compliment its beautiful warm weather.  

During Mayfiesta you can take advantage of the destination's first ever, once a year catalogue sale offering 25% off a range of accommodation, shopping, tours and restaurants throughout the month whilst enjoying an array of special events to keep you entertained.

In essence, Noosa Mayfiesta is the perfect excuse to heat up your pre-winter blues and enjoy the best of what Noosa has to offer, all in your own backyard.

And with a line-up of high quality events during the month, you are sure not to be disappointed.

Start by savoring some gastronomic delights at the Settler's Cove Celebration of Australian Food and Wine, Noosa Style, 16 to 18 May. Cementing Noosa's reputation as a haven for food and wine lovers, this event has something for everyone.

Learn to cook with Australia's best chefs at delicious magazine's Cooking Classes and Demonstrations. Recreate the meals at home with produce sourced from Vogue Entertaining + Travel's Producers Market and be entertained by Marcia Hines, James Morrison and Deni Hines in a showstopper concert.

Make sure you book your tickets early to indulge in Australia's Great Degustation at the renowned Berardos Restaurant, when Australia's best known celebrity chefs prepare a culinary 7 course experience to remember. 

Get into the swim of things on Sunday 18 May with the 5th Noosa Blue Water Swim. Go the distance in the 2km or 1km ocean swim, or take a more leisurely paddle in the 500m Triangle Swim along Noosa Main Beach.

With crystal clear water and mild subtropical temperatures, swimming in Noosa is a must for everyone. Combine this with Noosa Blue Water Swim's action-packed atmosphere, with thousands of participants and spectators, and you've got a fantastic autumn sporting event.

Celebrate the great outdoors during the Riverfest Regatta from 17 to 18 May, a celebration of Noosa's beautiful river setting. Row, sail or fish in one of Australia's most picturesque waterways.

Or cheer on the competitors from Gympie Terrace's bars and restaurants, a stone's throw away from the Noosa River.

For something uniquely Noosa, don't miss Feast on Thomas with the showcasing of Noosaville's best restaurants accompanied by high end entertainment for the whole family on the 10th May.
