Having a christmas day Gatho? heres three top things to do in Noosa.

Christmas Morning is nearly here, the time has come to dig out those dusty esky’s and hose them out, round the troops with deck chairs and foldout tables, mums on the glad wrap and dads packing the portable bbq, while your busy dropping the bag of ice from the biggest hight possible for the best ice to keep the beers cold!

We all love christmas, but each experience can be very different for some, heres buddy’s top tips for how to have the best time cheaply, but creating priceless memories on your christmas day.


3. National Park Picnic

Noosa National Park is one of the best coastal walks Australia has to offer, With each turn you are wow’d by a postcard picture, The noise of the rainbow lorikeet’s waking up and the subtle crash of the waves coming up the shore. Wake up at 6:00am before the morning madness begins and enjoy a glass of bubbles & strawberry with some freshly made warm ham and cheese croissant, relaxing on a picnic blanket over looking tea tree bay would be a fantastic way to kick start the christmas celebrations.

2. River retreat.

Yep, you know it! Once you have kickstarted your Christmas day with a relaxing champers, its time to find a ‘proppa’ good spot to start building your settlement for the day on the beautiful Noosa River. Unpacking the esky packed with salads, prawns, rolls, chips and drinks, make sure laying out the table is a team effort (obviously with a bevo in hand) and then sit back, relax and enjoy the day off with friends and family before the un-official ashes christmas day cricket test match begins! Remember, pick a spot by the Big Pelican where the toilets are 😉

1. Barbecue time.

After a long hard day of doing absolutely nothing, (apart from being 148 – not out of course) its time to fire up the BBQ, Our tip for the free bbq’s is that they don’t get that hot, so we would recommend taking your own portable one just in case. Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t mind the odd snag or two. The best snags in town would be from the Noosaville village butchers opposite Dan Murphy’s, they have the best Cumberland snags you will find on the Coast! OR…… you can flame up some beautiful rib eye fillets, here’s our tip on the perfect Steak;

Starting from home, coat both sides very generously with coarse black pepper and granulated garlic powder and drop the fillet singularly into a sandwich bag for time to marinate, pull the bad boy out of the bag when your bbq is that hot its starting to glow. For each steak, sprinkle 3/4 teaspoon of salt onto the skillet and allow salt to sit for at least 1 minute.

Place the steaks on and allow 3 solid minutes, whatever you do do not touch, poke, lift of even look at those bad boys until that 3 minutes is up! Once it is, repeat history.

All together 6 minutes is up and you have a medium rare juicy perfectly rested steak, if you wish for it to be medium then allow an extra 30 seconds on each side.

Now, Put your steaks in a roomy tin foil wrap, not tight…roomy to allow moisture and flavours to be absorbed by the steak properly.

Slice and dice that shit and serve it up in any form you wish!

This is exactly what we will be doing this Christmas, have a great day.
