Before the upcoming September school holidays there is more than $6000 worth of prizes up for grabs, so there is no better time for the Noosa community to explore and adore locally owned small businesses in Hastings Street.

For the chance to win more than 60 prizes of precinct gifts and goodies, all you have to do is snap a photo of your Hastings Street purchase receipt and scan the QR code which is available in every business on the street.

Feet First Footwear owner David Garozzo said there were many locally owned small businesses in Hastings Street struggling on the back of Covid lockdowns.

“As Hastings Street businesses, we are simply wanting to express to our wonderful locals and remind them of the beautiful surroundings that Hastings Street has to offer,“ David said.

“Plus, if you can win a luxury escape on Hastings Street, lunches worth over $200 at three different restaurants, and retail vouchers, well isn’t that a lovely reward for supporting your local community?

“We are so fortunate in Hastings Street, to have wonderful support from some of our leading premium accommodation and restaurant establishments, including Sofitel, Seahaven Noosa, Ocean Breeze, Season Restaurant, Boardwalk Bistro and Miss Moneypenny’s. We thank them for giving back to our local community.“

Customers are eligible by spending at any business, retail or restaurant or cafe on Hastings Street and it has never been easier to enter; now that QR codes are so easy to use, and you just enter your details. The competition closes on Thursday 16 September 2021, ahead of the September school holidays to ensure that it is really focused on rewarding the local community.

With a combined value of more than $6000, there’s dining vouchers, valet parking, a $500 shopping spree and an opportunity to stay on Hastings Street for a luxury escape, all to say thank you for shopping or dining on Hastings Street.

Winners will be announced on Friday 17 September at noon. For more details, visit
