Who likes food? Who likes wine? Who likes Noosa? If I had 3 arms, they’d all be up in the air right now, believe me! 

What an amazing event this was! Food, wine, entertainment ... and much more.

We arrived to find Hastings Street abuzz with the Noosa Street Feast long lunch featuring some of Noosa’s favourite restaurants and cafes. The tables seemed to stretch on forever.

The sunflowers absolutely made this table setting.

The aim of the Festival was to satisfy visitors' gastronomic urges for 4 days and nights and with a strong focus on fresh, local produce, it certainly delivered.

From a slow food safari, to beach front parties, food trails, celebrity lunches and dinners, riverside BBQ, lifestyle events, ‘up close and personals’ with renowned chefs, wine and culinary samplings, twilight markets and the very popular Spanish Quarter, there was something to cater (pun intended) to everyone. 

Everywhere we turned there was live music to keep us entertained.

It's not hard to believe that a sculpture like this can take about 4 hours to create. And create he does .... daily! This sculpture was absolutely amazing. I just couldn't stop taking photos of it! Arron's artwork is his job, so he appreciates all donations. Check out the amazing sculptures at www.sandshapers.com.
