Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe welcomed the return of one of the Sunshine Coast’s premier events.

“Events such as the Noosa Eat & Drink Festival play an important role in our economic recovery.“
“They fill local accommodation and dining precincts and encourage visitors to shop locally, which supports local jobs.
“An important part of rebuilding traveller confidence is having COVID-Safe plans in place, and the Noosa Eat & Drink organisers have spent significant time considering the best ways to stage their event to ensure everybody’s safety.“
