The Junc­tion is un­der­go­ing a re­nais­sance, de­vel­op­ing a new and ex­cit­ing night-life for vis­i­tors, tourists, back­pack­ers and lo­cals alike

Noosa Life and Style - - THINGS TO DO -

NOOSA Junc­tion and its “town square” – Ar­ca­dia St – are on track to em­u­late the re­vival suc­cess of Ma­roochy­dore’s pop­u­lar Ocean St.

With a host of new busi­nesses open­ing in re­cent months, the Twi­light Mar­kets bring­ing new peo­ple to the area and an air of pos­i­tiv­ity among traders, the Junc­tion is be­com­ing an eclec­tic shop­ping and leisure district.

The Twi­light Mar­kets fea­ture live mu­sic, en­ter­tain­ment from ar­ti­sans, great food vans, and a jump­ing castle for the kids among many other at­trac­tions.

There are now around 250 busi­nesses of all types lo­cated in Noosa Junc­tion, and nu­mer­ous older build­ings are now be­ing re­fur­bished or com­pletely re­built in har­mo­nious fash­ion.

Colin Benge and Dy­lan Eisen­hut opened their res­tau­rant and bar Par­adise Ar­cade in Ar­ca­dia St and haven’t looked back.

They had a good re­sponse from lo­cals from day one, who have packed the place out ev­ery night.

The pair picked the lo­ca­tion for its out­door set­tings and accessibil­ity for tourists as well as lo­cals.

The Junc­tion is de­vel­op­ing as an­other pop­u­lar hot spot in line with cen­tres from Noosa Ma­rina to Noosaville’s Thomas St precinct to Hast­ings St it­self.
