A street famous all over Australia for its high fashion and fine dining. Hastings fronts Noosa Main Beach. Shops line both sides, split intermittently with bars, restaurants and coffee houses. The types of shops that on Hastings are high fashion, commercial labels, boutiques and tourist shops. The prices are high, some of the shops can be soulless.
