There's no irony here—this spot earns its name with bright, sunny days and summer-like temperatures the majority of the year.

Primo place: The recently completed Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort and Spa in Noosa has spacious rooms and a sublime location—it's an easy walk to Noosa Main Beach, plus upscale boutiques and restaurants serving everything from ceviche to kangaroo burgers (seriously) steps from the water.

Shore style: Along the harbor, just outside of downtown Noosa, find everything that's beachy chic—chandeliers, wooden signs, mirrors, lamps—all dressed in white and neutral in The White House shop. For a splash of color, bright decorative art, coffee-table books, and colorful vases are around the corner at Saffron Noosa.

Day trip: The harborfront aquarium in the town of Mooloolaba recently completed a $4 million renovation; a walk through the ocean tunnel reveals sharks, stingrays, and coral.
